StyleSpeak turns taning concernss into triumphs with the latest de-tanning solutions for a flawless, even skin tone

Summers can be fun, but that beautiful bronzed glow can sometimes linger a little too long leaving the skin with uneven patches, a shade darker than desired, lacking it’s natural radiance.

For clients who are always on the look-out for de-tanning options that can keep their skin glowing even in the harshest of summer, help is at hand!

StyleSpeak puts together the latest innovative treatments – from gentle exfoliation to laser treatments and much more. Here’s a closer look at the hottest de-tanning solutions that will have clients ditching the photo filters and welcoming a brighter, happier complexion this summer.

Photo Facials – The OG of de-tanning facials

Among the rising stars in de-tanning treatments is the photofacial. This non-invasive procedure utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to target uneven pigmentation and sun damage. The light beams break down melanin, the pigment responsible for tan, allowing your body to remove it naturally. It helps boost collagen production and reduce hyperpigmentation.

This painless procedure is a gentler alternative to chemical peels, hence, suitable for all skin types. With multiple sessions, you can expect a gradual lightening of tan and a reduction in sunspots and blemishes, revealing a clearer, more even complexion. Along with de-tanning, photo facials also help deal with age spots, acne, and wrinkles.

Microdermabrasion – Buff away your tan troubles

Microdermabrasion is surging in popularity as a gentle yet effective de-tanning treatment. In this minimally invasive technique, the top layer of the skin is removed with an abrasive instrument to fight acne, scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots, resulting in even-toned skin. Though this procedure is safe, some side effects include swelling, redness, and tenderness, but are reduced within hours. After the treatment, it is advisable to use sunscreen at all times as the new skin is exposed and healing.

Hydrafacials – A summer skin detox

Hydrafacials are a popular summer facial for tan removal. It uses a dermabrasion tool and a light chemical peel that buffs away the top layer of tanned skin cells. This reveals the brighter skin underneath. Also, the extractions remove any

built-up pigment that can contribute to a dull, uneven tan. Hydrating serums are used as the last step. Infused with antioxidants, it can even out skin tone and promote a healthy glow. Though a single treatment might not completely erase a tan, a series of Hydrafacials can significantly improve its appearance and leave your skin brighter and more even-toned.

Chemical Peels – The tan-busting heroes

The beauty industry is flooded with innumerable at-home chemical peels, but the important part is to get the right cocktail of chemicals as per the skin type and the intensity of the tan. Chemical peels work like magic by using controlled acids to exfoliate the top layer of the skin gently. This layer often harbours the excess pigment responsible for the tan. A skilled salon professional should personalize a peel to target the client’s specific tan troubles, resulting in a smoother, clearer, and more radiant complexion. After the peel, the pigment lesions crust within 1-2 days and slowly slough off within a week. However, if the skin needs a deep chemical peel, most of the skin peeling will be within the first two weeks, and the redness could last much longer.

Additionally, chemical peels offer additional benefits beyond de-tanning. They can minimize fine lines, reduce acne scarring, and even boost collagen production for a firmer, youthful appearance.

Laser Toning – A technical marvel

Laser toning tackles the tan at its source-melanin. This advanced treatment uses concentrated laser beams to target and break down melanin deposits in the skin. Then, the body removes these fragments, revealing the fresh, untanned skin beneath. Laser toning boasts impressive results for stubborn tans and uneven pigmentation. Compared to other methods, it offers a more precise and controlled approach. With multiple sessions, you can expect a gradual lightening of the tan, often accompanied by a reduction in sunspots and freckles. This translates to a clearer, more radiant complexion that reflects the natural skin tone. However, this treatment might only be ideal for some, especially those with sensitive skin or certain skin conditions.

Armed with all this knowledge about the latest tan removal treatments, get ready to remove/minimise those unwanted tans and give your clients a brighter and glowing complexion this summer.
