Skin Lightening works on the principle of using different methods (creams, lasers, serums, chemicals, oral medications etc.,) to reduce the melanin deposition in the skin making it look a tone lighter.
The Skin Lightening Treatments
The creams and serums work on the epidermis, that is their effect is mostly on the visible skin. The properties of the creams thus restrict to bleaching or hydrating for glow. The skin does absorb some of the ingredients but the effect is only till the epidermis, failing to reach the dermis and hence the overall result is short-lived. Thus, it would be wrong to say that these are totally ineffective but they would rather be used for maintenance than cure.
Next in the line come the oral medications, mainly glutathione based. Glutathione for your information is an antioxidant produced in the liver and responsible for preventing pigmentation by reducing melanin deposition. Taking glutathione orally helps as the ingredient dissolves in the blood stream and works. However, everything we take orally first goes to our liver, gets processed and then goes into the bloodstream to work where it should. This entire cycle results in some amount of wastage thus reducing the overall efficacy.
And finally we come to the two most effective solutions. One is glutathione or Vitamin-C based injections and the other is the Laser treatment. The injections are given directly into the bloodstream and thus get to work immediately bringing changes from within the body. The Lasers on the other hand break down the pigments or work on the tissues to start the process of skin healing. Both of these treatments are comparatively long lasting but they do require booster sessions sometime.

Medi Facial is another method of Skin Brightening/Skin Whitening that uses microdermabrasion, a medical pigment lightening agent as mesotherapy with skin infusion devices to lighten and brighten the skin along with LED masks They are more effective than normal spa facials because they can deeply penetrate the skin. This gives you results that last longer.

If you are looking for non-invasive skin lightening treatments, hydradermabrasion may be a good choice. It uses serum and water-based pressurization technique to exfoliate the upper layer of your skin. When the damaged and dead skin cells are removed, it resurfaces a healthier, more hydrated, and younger looking skin layer.

Skin Hydration Method
Skin Hydration is a relatively new technique offered using a specially prepared version of hyaluronic acid for Mesotherapy linked to a specific injection technique. This allows an experienced practitioner to directly inject hyaluronic acid into larger areas of skin to help improve skin quality and hydration. This Skin Lightening technique improves the condition of the dermis and stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and the body’s own hyaluronic acid.
Glutathione for Skin Whitening
Glutathione (GSH) is a natural antioxidant which is present in our body. However, it decreases with the increasing age and without the protection of GSH, the cells start aging faster. As discussed above, glutathione can be taken both as oral medication as well as in form of injections to achieve the desired results. The skin treatment by Glutathione that is offered helps in brightening the skin, rejuvenating the skin, keeping away the signs of ageing.
