Skin Lightening Surgery
Hyperpigmentation is defined as excess pigmentation in various parts of the body, and hyperpigmentation removal treatments target and lighten those darkened area of the body. If you’re currently using skin bleaching products and you want a treatment that will enhance the results of your skin bleaching products, you should consider skin lightening surgery.

There are two popular forms of skin lightening surgery; laser resurfacing surgery and cryosurgery. In laser resurfacing surgery, high intensity emissions of light from the laser remove layers of damaged skin through process of penetration. The doctor first removes layers of damaged skin then applies the antibiotic to kill bacteria. Then beams of light pass over the skin to vaporize outer layers of damaged skin. Finally, the doctor applies protective ointment to treated areas of the skin. The disadvantage of laser resurfacing surgery is that it may cause redness of skin temporarily, skin irritation and because it only treats visible skin scars, it doesn’t get to the root of the problem, which could be solved by using skin lightening creams or homemade skin lightening treatments with natural products. If you got a laser resurfacing treatment on your face, it’s important that you use cetaphil soap and auqanor cream on your face to avoid dryness and to keep your skin healthy following the surgery. Drinking eight glasses of water a day after the facial resurfacing surgery also moisturizes your skin during the recovery period.
Another type of surgery for skin lightening is cryosurgery. With this procedure the darkened areas of your skin are frozen with the use of liquid nitrogen then these dead skin sells rise to the surface and eventually peel off, leading to healthier and brighter skin. This procedure is especially good for those who have a lot of freckles, age spots and sun spots. Before you choose cryosurgery as an option, try using skin bleaching creams and other remedies because cryosurgery can be very costly and you also want to research this surgery online and by reading some health articles on this surgery before having it.
