Melanage Skin Lightening Peel
This peel is a superficial peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of hyper-pigmentation which involves a medicated masque and at-home regimen. This peel is safe for all skin types including dark skin. There is no pain and minimal irritation during the application of the masque. The irritation on the days following is likened to a sunburn.
This treatment should be done in the fall or winter. One treatment may be enough for some clients to achieve optimal results, however some patients may need additional treatments.
What to Expect
Your skin may have a slight yellow tinge and slight redness after removal of the masque. The redness may last up to one week. Approximately 48 hours after the treatment your skin will start to peel, this will last 2-5 days. Patients must follow the at-home regimen for best results. You will be provided with your at-home skin care product kit containing anti-redness foaming cleanser, anti-redness soothing balm, antioxidant soothing balm, sunscreen SPF 30 and melange 2 Crème. This kit should last about 3 months.
Results vary, but typically patients see a significant improvement in the appearance of pigmented areas. By using the at-home regimen you increase your chances of having a better result. Dark spots will lighten as well as having an improvement to texture and tone of skin.
Some patients do not experience peeling. If you do not notice peeling, please know that you are still receiving the benefits to the peel.
