A medical aesthetics practitioner Dr. Reza Mia told the media that skin bleaching is not safe at all and people do not know the side effects. Some of these products were never tested or they might not work at all. Once pigmentation is removed it means the skin has no protective layer and this increases the risk of sun damage.
