Skin lightening is a sought-after cosmetic treatment that many opt for to achieve a more even skin tone. At The Refinery Medspa and Wellness, our treatments for both men and women are always safe, effective, and tailored to your individual needs and goals.

What Is Skin Lightening?

Skin lightening, often referred to as skin whitening or skin bleaching, involves the use of specific treatments to achieve a lighter skin tone or to reduce the prominence of skin discolorations. These treatments can range from topical creams to advanced procedures.

At The Refinery, we prioritize non-invasive treatments that use natural ingredients to ensure that both your health needs and aesthetic desires are met.

Why Opt for This Treatment?

People pursue skin brightening for various reasons. Some wish to address hyperpigmentation, age spots, or uneven skin tone; others desire a brighter, more luminous complexion. Whatever the motivation, we’re here to assist you in achieving your unique skin goals. The primary benefit? A boost in self-confidence stemming from an enhanced physical appearance.

One common misconception is that skin lightening is only for those who want a drastic change to their natural skin tone. In reality, many people opt for this treatment to address specific problem areas or achieve a more even complexion, not necessarily a lighter one.

Factors Leading to Skin Discoloration

Numerous things can lead to uneven skin tones, like sun damage, hormonal imbalances, certain medications, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can happen after wounds heal or from acne. By understanding the root causes, we can better assess the suitability of lightening treatments for each individual. That’s just one reason it’s always wise to seek treatment from professionals rather than doing things at home. You can be sure you’re being advised on treatments that will actually work for you and be safe for your specific needs.

Customizing Your Treatment Journey

Skin is as individual as fingerprints. Recognizing this, we have a bespoke approach for each client. During your complimentary consultation at The Refinery Medspa & Wellness, we’ll assess your skin type, its current condition, and your desired outcome. This detailed analysis allows us to tailor the treatment sessions, ensure that skin brightening is right for you, and recommend other complementary treatments that can be helpful.

Bryght: Our Chosen System

Bryght is a revolutionary lightening system for the skin, especially renowned for intimate skin bleaching. Its unique formulation ensures maximum results without the need for surgical intervention. This means our clients can expect phenomenal outcomes with minimal to no downtime. The active ingredients in the these products work synergistically, targeting melanin production.

Melanin is the pigment responsible for our skin’s color, and by regulating its production, this treatment ensures a uniform and lighter skin tone. Moreover, the treatment focus is on maintaining the skin’s pH balance, which is what ensures that the treatment remains gentle without compromising efficacy. The unique formula used by this system lightens the skin and reduces the appearance of dark spots and discolorations. Furthermore, it’s specifically designed to be gentle enough even for the most intimate areas, ensuring safety and effectiveness at the same time.

Treatment Specifics

When you choose The Refinery for your treatment, our professionals ensure you’re well-informed and comfortable every step of the way. The Bryght system involves a series of sessions wherein a special gel is applied to the targeted areas. This gel, combined with the Bryght Brightening agent, then works its magic, ensuring that you get closer to your desired skin tone with each session.


Your well-being is our foremost concern, and that’s why we love this system. It’s not only effective but also incredibly safe. Since it’s specifically formulated for even the most intimate areas, you can be assured of its gentleness. While side effects are rare, some individuals might experience slight redness or tingling immediately after the treatment. However, these are transient and fade swiftly.

Post-Treatment Care

Post-treatment, it’s crucial to follow the care guidelines provided by our practitioners. The advice they give will be specific to you, but for everyone, general advice includes avoiding excessive sun exposure and applying sunscreen diligently. Keeping the treated area moisturized and refraining from using any harsh skincare products for a few days can also help you get the fastest results.


How Effective Is This?

Using this all-natural formula consistently can help in achieving a more uniform skin tone, but it won’t result in hypopigmentation, meaning your skin won’t become lighter than its original color.

How Soon Will I See My Results?

Typically, the skin appears 1-3 shades lighter immediately. You’ll notice a difference after each session.

What Ingredients Are Used?

The ingredients in this treatment include Phenylethyl Resorcinol, Lactic Acid, multiple forms of Vitamin C, Cucumber Extract, Indian Gooseberry Extract, Bearberry Leaf Extract, Licorice Extract, Mulberry Extract, and Lemon Extract. Each of these ingredients plays a unique role, ranging from inhibiting tyrosinase activity to treating hyperpigmentation, offering antioxidant properties, and calming signs of irritation and evening out skin tone.

Has This Product Actually Been Tested?

The Bryght product underwent clinical testing for over six months and was tweaked along the way until it achieved optimum client satisfaction and the approval of estheticians. It’s a proven, natural way to lighten you skin and even out skin tone.

Am I a Candidate?

Nearly everyone is a candidate for skin brightening. The only people who aren’t eligible for treatment are women who are pregnant or breastfeeding because the hormonal changes you’re going through during these times might prevent the treatment from working properly. Also, you shouldn’t use this treatment if you’re treating your skin with Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, or other potent chemicals.

What About If My Skin Is Very Sensitive?

These products are formulated to be mild, which makes them suitable even for sensitive areas. However, if you know you’re sensitive to any of the key ingredients, or if you are unusually sensitive in general, it’s always wise to conduct a patch test before full application. Let us know about your skin sensitivities and any issues you’ve had in the past when you come talk to us in consultation.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?

This treatment is mild enough to be used under the arms, in the anal, inner thigh, and bikini areas, on the face and hands, and on knees, elbows, and the décolleté region. If you’re interested in skin brightening in any area, talk to us about it, and we’ll help you understand if treatment will work for you.
