Skin whitening treatment or skin lightening treatment refers to reducing the melanin pigmentation in the skin through various techniques thereby giving it a lighter and brighter tone.
Skin color is determined by the amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin is a skin pigment produced by specialized cells called melanocytes. People with dark skin have more melanin.
Many other factors such as sunlight exposure, hormones, skin damage, and exposure to certain chemicals can also affect melanin production.
