  • Skin Whitening

The amount of melanin present in the body is responsible for determining an individual's skin color. Melanin is manufactured by cells called melanocytes. The amount of melanin present in a person's skin is largely determined by their genetic makeup. Those with dark complexion have more melanin and those with a light complexion have less. 

The production of melanin is also affected by the following factors:

  • Exposure to the sun
  • Degree of damaged skin
  • Exposure to chemicals

Skin whitening is the process by which people reduce the melanin pigment in the skin to give it a whiter complexion.

What Is Skin Whitening?

Skin whitening is the process of using chemicals or other products to reduce the melanin pigment in the skin. This can be done for cosmetic reasons, to achieve a lighter skin tone. It can also be done for medical purposes, such as treating conditions that cause hyperpigmentation or dark spots on the skin.

There are a variety of products and techniques used in skin whitening, including beauty injections, chemical peels, laser treatments, and more. Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it is important to consult with a dermatologist before choosing a skin whitening method that is right for you.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Skin Whitening?

Anyone who wishes to have fair skin, especially those with a darker tone of skin can choose to undergo skin whitening. This procedure can also be helpful in dealing with problems like freckles, age spots, scars, moles, acne scars, and birthmarks.

What To Expect At The Consultation For Skin Whitening At Arra Aesthetics, Pune?

During the consultation for skin whitening at Arra Aesthetics, Pune, Dr. Vasant Gholave will:

  • Ask about what skin tone you have in mind
  • Discuss your medical history, including any medical problems you currently have or any medication that you are currently using
  • Perform skin analysis using a dermascope or other instruments

Based on this information, Dr. Vasant Gholave will recommend the right skin whitening treatment for you. At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, each treatment is customized to suit people with all skin types and will help you achieve brighter and more radiant-looking skin.

How Is Skin Whitening Done At Arra Aesthetics, Pune?

At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, Dr. Vasant Gholave mainly the following procedures for skin whitening:

Beauty Injections

Beauty injections contain glutathione and are administered directly into the skin. Glutathione exists as a naturally-occurring substance in the human body. It works by neutralizing free radicals, boosting immunity, and also helping in the detoxification of the body. It helps in converting the melanin to a light color and helps in decreasing the production of melanin pigment by deactivating the enzyme tyrosinase.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use a chemical solution to exfoliate or peel away damaged or dead layers of skin on the surface.  This treatment includes applying a peeling solution to the skin. The duration of letting the solution rest on the skin depends on the concentration of the solution. 

Chemical peels help to reduce the appearance of dark spots, sun damage, and other pigmentation issues on the skin. Depending on the type of peel used, it may be applied in a single layer or multiple layers for a deeper treatment.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments use concentrated beams of light energy to penetrate deep into the skin and target areas of pigment. This treatment can be used to reduce lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging on the skin, as well as improve skin tone and texture. The laser treatments vary in intensity and duration depending on the severity of the hyperpigmentation or dark spots being treated. 

What Are The Benefits Of Skin Whitening?

There are many benefits of skin whitening, including improved appearance and a more even skin tone. Additionally, many skin whitening treatments like beauty injections and chemical peels also help to reduce signs of aging on the skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles. 

What Are The Risks Of Skin Whitening?

Following are some of the risks of undergoing skin whitening treatments:

  • Bruising
  • Skin dryness
  • Sensitivity to sunlight
  • Tightness, swelling, scarring
  • Skin infections
  • Skin texture difference
  • Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening) or hypopigmentation (skin lightening)
  • Skin redness and irritation

However, these side effects are rarely seen and are easily treatable. At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, we take every precaution to minimize these risks and ensure the safety and well-being of all our patients.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic . I highly recommend the clinic to people.

Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back.
