Whether you’ve spent too much time sunbathing on summer afternoons or if you’ve popped a few too many pimples, you probably know what it’s like to struggle with an uneven complexion. Dark spots are an unfortunate reality for too many of us.
You can purchase skin whitening creams in boutiques and pharmacies, but these dark spot treatments are usually filled with harsh chemicals. Bleaching creams, chemical peels, and fading ointments block the tyrosinase enzyme to stop melanin production. They do work, but they come with a long list of potential risks including skin cancer.
Thanks to bio-whitening pigment repair, you can improve your complexion without the hefty price tag, long recovery times, or possible risks. These natural solutions will provide long-term results without the long-term damage. Made with essential oils and plant extracts, natural skin brightening facials provide your skin with the vitamins and minerals it needs to eliminate toxins and quickly regenerate.
What is a skin brightening treatment?
There are three different types of skin brightening treatments: topical, laser, and bio-whitening.
Topical ointments: Most skin lightening creams contain hydroquinone, which stems the production of melanin in the treated area. While over-the-counter creams can only contain up to 2% hydroquinone, dermatologists can prescribe a medical salve with a 4-6% concentration.
When used consistently over two to three months, hydroquinone can help reduce the visible signs of freckles, age spots, and scars. Be careful though. Lotions that aren’t certified by the FDA may contain mercury and other caustic ingredients. Even creams that are FDA-approved though come with a long list of side effects including burning, stinging, oozing, cracking, and discoloration.
Laser Skin Resurfacing: Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that vaporizes the upper layer of skin stimulating the body to produce new cells. While it’s fast and rather effective, it can cause infection, inflammation, acne, and discoloration. We do offer a series of non-invasive cosmetic skin brightening treatments.

Bio-Whitening: Bio-whitening is one of the only black spots treatment with no harmful side effects. Plant-based and completely natural, these facials will provide your skin with nutrients that fight hyperpigmentation, age spots, and sun damage.
Why is mandarin extract an essential component of our bio-whitening treatment?
Mandarin oil, one of the main ingredients found in our black spots face treatment, is known for its many healing properties. Native to East Asia and the Philippines, mandarin oranges have been used to reduce acne and eliminate age spots for centuries. Not only does it stimulate blood flow, but it also functions as an antiseptic.
Officially known as citrus reticulata, this extract is derived from the peel of the orange. As a natural antioxidant, it fights harmful free radicals and pre-cancerous growths. Mandarin oil also protects the skin from dangerous microbes destroying bacteria and other toxins it thinks might infect the body.
This miracle extract promotes new cell growth helping the body heal its wounds, scars, and stretch marks more quickly. Plus, because it contains large amounts of vitamin C, it serves as a natural treatment for acne and dark spots. Vitamin C is essential for collagen production, a protein that generates new cell growth and maintains elasticity.
Best of all, mandarin oil actually functions as a nerve relaxant fighting stress reactions and excess inflammation. Stress is a normal and even healthy part of life, but if you fail to keep it in check, it can wreak havoc on your skin. Stress can cause and/or aggravate psoriasis, eczema, acne, and hives. Worse still, stress weakens your immune system making it even more difficult for your body to heal itself. The stress-busting qualities of mandarin extract can supercharge your skin’s regenerative powers.
