Skin Whitening Treatments

Why would someone wish to be fairer? I know most people will ask that when they hear about the various skin whitening treatments available in the market. Well, for most Asians, especially Filipinos, having fair skin will make them more attractive. So, to be able to have the results that they wanted, they use skin lightening products. I happen to have the typical Asian skin. I have brown skin, which I really like…most of the time. But honestly, I hated my color when I can’t wear anything I want because it won’t compliment my skin. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the bleaching products available in the market?

There are several products you can use for your skin. These products can be in soap, cream, or lotion forms. There are topical solutions and some are taken orally or intravenously.

How much these products do cost?

Skin whitening treatments vary in prices depending on their effectiveness. Prices also depend on the popularity of the brand or the dermatologist. Soaps can range from Php 50 ($1) -Php 300 ($6). A personal favorite is Kojie San Kojic Acid soap that sells for Php 80 ($1.40). Oral pills sell for about two thousand pesos ($40) for a bottle of 30 pills and intravenous Glutathione for Php 5,000 ($100) per session. Skin bleaching or skin peeling sessions usually cost 2,000 pesos ($40) each.

Are these products safe?

Most medicines and chemical products are tested by the local drug-testing facility. Just be sure that the products you use do not contain ingredients you are allergic to.
