What is the Melanage peel used to treat?
The Melanage skin lightening peel works on all skin types, including skin of color and is truly a breakthrough for the treatment of hyperpigmentation including melasma, fine lines, skin tone and texture.
What will happen during my treatment?
A Melanage Masque is applied to your skin in the office and you will leave the office with the masque on your face. The masque will stay on for 5 to 10 hours depending on your skin type (for a Mini peel the masque stays on for 2 to 4 hours). There is no discomfort and no numbing is required. You will be given instructions and all the products needed for you to follow the recommended after-care regimen at home.
What results can I expect?
Results vary per patient but the majority will see a significant improvement in the appearance of melasma and other areas of undesired pigmentation. Hyperpigmentation will lighten and skin texture and tone will improve.
What if my skin does not peel?
Most patients experience some degree of peeling and/or flaking skin. However, if your skin does not peel, do not worry! You are still getting all of the benefits of the peel which includes stimulation of collagen and elastin, improvement in pigmentation and texture, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
How many treatments do I need?
Most patients will see visible reduction in pigmentation after one or two Melanage Skin Lightening peels. The full Melanage peel can be repeated every 5-6 months as needed to maintain results. The Melanage Mini Skin Brightening peel is less aggressive and can be performed one month apart. Two Mini peels can often give the same results as one full peel.
