Skin Lightening

about Skin lightening is a cosmetic procedure that aims to lighten dark areas of skin or achieve a generally paler skin tone. It is usually used to improve the appearance of blemishes such as birthmarks and dark patches (melasma). Skin-lightening procedures work by reducing the concentration or production of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its colour and helps protect it from the sun.

At-home treatment

We offer powerful medical grade skin-lightening creams to help you achieve that perfect glow. Sunscreen is a must when using any skin lightening product as your skin will become more photo sensitive.

The following ingredients are proven effective in treatment of skin lightening/brightening.

Hydroquinone - Hydroquinone is a skin-lightening agent. It bleaches the skin, which can be helpful when treating different forms of hyperpigmentation. Hydroquinone must be used with caution and only under the supervision of a health care professional.

Kojic Acid - Kojic acid is an all-natural lightening and brightening skincare active. Kojic acid works to lighten and brighten your skin by making the enzyme necessary for melanin production unavailable

Glutathione - A potent antioxidant offered through our medical grade skincare as well as IV Therapy, Glutathione makes a fantastic partner to well-studied skin lightening ingredients like Kojic acid.

Arbutin - Arbutin comes from dried blueberry, bearberry, or pear tree leaves. Arbutin is considered to be a natural form of hydroquinone and it may be just as effective. When used over time, arbutin may also be more effective than other natural ingredients, such as Kojic acid.

In-Clinic Treatments

A laser can also be used to lighten blemishes or dark patches of skin. This works by either removing the outer layer of skin or damaging the cells that produce melanin. A consultation with one of our Skin Specialist’s will help uncover your options.

We also offer IV Therapy. Glutathione is an antioxidant, naturally present in the body, that inhibits the production of melanin. As melanin is the substance responsible for pigmentation in the skin, glutathione can have a dramatic and positive effect on skin tone and colour.
