Skin rejuvenation includes treating the skin inside and out. Healthy skin is radiant. To maintain a radiant glow, the superficial layers of skin should be exfoliated with chemical peels. Laser and microneedling helps to restore skin’s collagen.
Chemical peels are a great option to help maintain the skin in its healthy state. A customized treatment plan utilizing Vi Peel, SkinMedica, or PCA chemical peels can be formulated to treat dark spots, acne, melasma, sun damage, fine wrinkles, and textural changes of the skin. A chemical peel involves cleansing and then degreasing the skin with alcohol. The peel with a proprietary blend is then applied to the skin. After the peel is completed, corrective serums and sunscreen is then applied. It is recommended that exercise and swimming be avoided 48 hours after the procedure. Gentle skin care and sunscreen is mandated to protect the skin. Peeling will start 3-4 days after the procedure and may last for approximately 1 week.
What is the Melanage Ultra Skin Brightening System?
The Melanage Ultra Skin Brightening treatment is a superficial peel system designed to improve the texture and appearance of uneven skin tone which involves a medicated masque and an at-home regimen. This peel is safe and effective for all skin types including dark skin. There is no pain and little-to-no irritation during the application of the mask, and typically, the irritation level on the following days is more like a sunburn.
How does it work?
Melanage 1 Masque is applied during an office visit to ensure its potency and reliability. The application of Melanage Masque takes approximately 20 minutes. A uniform layer of Melanage is applied. No discomfort is experienced and patients describe procedure as soothing and relaxing. It is recommended to tie back your hair away from face, to avoid getting product in it. Patients leave the office with this masque on their face. The masque will remain on face for 5 to 10 hours according to the patient's skin type. The rest of your treatment will continue at home and will involve several follow-up visits during the first month. Patients are responsible for adhering to an easy-to-follow, but strict, at-home regimen involving the application of several Melanage products following masque removal.
How many treatments will I need?
Only one treatment is initially recommended, but a touch-up treatment can be performed on problem spots after one month. If needed, treatments can be repeated once a year.
What will I experience after treatment?
Your skin may have a light yellow tinge or slight redness after removal of the masque. The redness may last for the next seven days. Approximately 36- 48 hours after the treatment your skin will start to peel, which will generally last about 5-7 days, with minor flaking for 2 weeks thereafter. Patients must follow the at-home regimen for optimal results. You will be provided, at no additional charge, with an at-home skincare product kit containing an Anti-Redness Foaming Cleanser, Anti-Redness Soothing Balm, Antioxidant Soothing Balm Sunscreen SPF 30 and Melanage 2 Crème. This kit should last about 1 month.
What results can I expect?
Results will vary, but generally patients will see a significant improvement in the appearance of uneven skin tone areas. Dark spots will gradually fade, complemented by an improved skin texture and tone. Although most patients experience peeling of their skin, not every patient will notice this.
MELANAGE MINIPEEL + SKIN ENHANCING SYSTEM
Like the Melanage UltraPeel, but a mini version. Also perfect for stubborn uneven skin tone, but may be a better option for those who prefer a little less downtime—there is usually less redness and peeling. The painless peel solution is applied in the office and removed at home after a few hours. An at-home post care kit is included and compliance is critical to achieve optimal results. Safe for all skin types. We recommend a series of 2-4 treatments, every 3-6 weeks.
