Melanage Peels

Melanage Peels

Do you have uneven skin tone, deep pigment concerns or melasma? Then this treatment is just for you.
The beauty of the Melanage Peel is that it removes the discoloration, melasma, pregnancy masque and sunspots plus age spots in a simple non-invasive treatment. The best part is that it is the first treatment that is truly effective on darker skin tones, heretofore the category of skin that has not seen much benefit from peels and laser treatments.

What is the treatment like?

First, the doctor or therapist cleanses the skin using a special skin degreasing solution pad. The peel solution is withdrawn from a syringe pipet and inserted into a glass beaker. The doctor dips swabs into the beaker, saturates them with the Melanage solution and applies the solution evenly over the skin's surface, avoiding contact with the eyes and eye area.

The masque remains on for 5, 8 or 10 hours, depending on the length of time recommended by the doctor to achieve optimum results.

When the time is up, the patient washes off the masque using Melanage Anti-Redness Foaming Cleanser. Then the patient pats the skin dry and applies a layer of Anti-Redness Soothing Balm. The follow-up treatment continues for six days with morning and night applications of specialized Melanage ointments and creams. After a week, the applications continue in an abbreviated format.

How does the Melanage Peel work?

The Melanage Peel uses two ingredients to penetrate the skin to treat the discolouration and turn the cells over so the discolouration is not left of the surface of the skin; Retin A and Hydroquinone respectively.

Avoid treatment:

  • If you have an active cold sore or warts, open wounds, sunburn, excessively sensitive skin, dermatitis or inflammatory rosacea in the area to be treated.
  • If you have a history of herpes simplex, be certain to inform the doctor.
  • If you have a history of allergies and rashes, skin reactions or sensitivities
  • If you have taken Acutane within the last year
  • If you have received chemotherapy or radiation therapy in the last year
  • If you are breast-feeding.

How often do I need treatments?

Many patients will only require one Melanage Peel. If further results are desired, the patient can be treated with a second peel 6 months after receiving the first treatment. The Minipeel can be repeated in 1-2 months, as necessary. Most patients that seek Minipeel treatment typically complete 3-5 treatments over the course of a few years for maximum results.
