How Long Does it Take for Skin Lightening Cream to Work?

This is a question people often have when they first start using a skin lightening cream.  The answer is the timeframe varies depending on which product you use.  

It Doesn't Have to Take Forever

One of the most asked questions regarding our skin lightening treatments is "how long does it take?"  Our answer is the first results can come in as little as 3-5 days.  Normally other skin lightening products take 7-10 days to work but if the product is more concentrated, even if it is formulated with natural ingredients, it can work both better and faster.  

Which Products Should I Use for Faster Results

We have product that are good for mild results such as removing dark spots, and mild sun damage, that is not too bothersome.  However, for more stubborn and harder to lighten pigmentation of the skin, it is best to use a stronger and more concentrated product.  

For example, melasma or chloasma is a skin condition that causes dark patches and can be very stubborn and hard to remove.  It can be caused by repeated and long term exposure to the sun as well as hormones from birth control pills or during different times in a woman's life, but can also affect males too.  For something as difficult to remove as melasma it is important to use a strong bleaching treatment, preferably something that is applied twice daily and follow up with a good sunscreen during the day.

 Do the Dark Spots or Hyperpigmentation Come Back

That is also another question that is asked by many of our customers and those that are looking to get rid of dark spots, melasma, sun damage, and any other darkening of the skin.  The answer is most of the time, once hyperpigmentation is gone, it is gone for good and won't return however, with conditions that may be caused by hormones or excessive sun exposure it is important to stop whatever behaviors contributed to your dark and patchy skin to begin with.  Wearing sunscreen is something that must be done both while lightening the area and after treatment.
