Bleaching to Whiten Skin Color

 

Skin coloration is a major topic of interest in the Asian community, especially among those of Southeast Asian ethnicity who tend to have darker pigmentation but desire a lighter tone.

While bleaching to whiten skin color has become somewhat of a fad, applying harsh chemicals is not a good idea.

Illegal "black market" creams are particularly risky and can cause deforming burns and scarring.

Some skin bleaching compounds can be absorbed into the blood stream.

Hydroquinone, the most common bleaching agent, has been linked to leukemia and adverse skin reactions causing permanent disfigurement.

Even when combined with tretinoin (the active ingredient in Retin-A ®), hydroquinone is only capable of reducing melanin residing in the outermost epidermis layer of the skin

Addressing deeper dermal "melanosis" and especially localized pigmented lesions generally requires use of more aggressive "ablative" laser or chemical peels.
