Skin color is determined by a color cell called melanin. Melanin density and therefore skin tone varies in each individual. The factors that determine the density of melanin include not only genetic factors but also hormonal characteristics, chemical and cosmetic products used, drugs, exposure to the sun and pregnancy.
Why do spots and darkening occur on the skin? What are the treatment procedures?
When the density of melanin in the skin changes with the effect of hormonal changes and sun rays, darkening and spots occur in the skin. This is considered as an aesthetic problem by most individuals, and a solution is sought. These individuals present to our clinics and request skin bleaching procedure. This procedure, which we call skin lightening or skin bleaching, is performed using several different techniques. All of these techniques are reliable, responsive and do not pose any obstacle to the continuation of daily life.
When it comes to skin bleaching, most individuals first try lightening creams and masks. However, permanent and effective results are often not obtained from such cosmetic products. Treatments administered in the clinic equalize the skin tone and eliminate aesthetic problems. The most popular skin bleaching technique is laser. This technique utilizes the ability of laser to destroy the melanocytes in the skin tissue. Thus, the skin tone is bleached and skin blemishes are eliminated. Laser beams affect an area of 3-4 mm. As long as the procedure is applied by a professional physician, it does not cause any side effects. The skin color is bleached up to 2 tones in a single session. There is no scar or bleeding after the laser skin bleaching technique. After the procedure, the recovery period takes up to one week. At the end of this period, an even, light and bright skin tone is achieved.
Other techniques used in skin bleaching procedures are DermaPen, Vitamin C injection, glutathione injection and PRP. DermaPen procedure aims to renew the skin and have an even color tone with a bright appearance. Before starting the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleaned. Anesthetic cream is administered to the target area so that the patient does not feel pain during the procedure. The length of DermaPen micro needles varies between 0.5-2.5 mm. The specialist physician adjusts the depth of the microneedles to be used according to the type of skin and requirements of the patient. Microchannels are created on the skin with the DermaPen tool. Therefore, the reparative mechanism of the body comes into play and renews the skin. For more successful results, DermaPen treatment is usually performed together with PRP. These processes are also effective in eliminating fine lines, blemishes, acne scars and dark circles under the eyes.
A newly developed method, PRP alone is widely used in skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments all over the world.With the help of a serum obtained from the patient's own blood cells, all wounds are healed, scars are removed and tissues are regenerated. In this way, an even, clear and bright skin tone is achieved.
