The Melanage skin brightening system is a superficial chemical peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. This peel can be used on patients of most skin colors with persistent or particularly resistant pigmentation problems. It entails the application of a cream masque and an at home regimen.
The Melanage masque is applied during an office visit where it is compounded freshly to ensure its potency and reliability. Prescription strength hydoquinone deters the development of melanin production while Retinoic acid accelerates cell turnover, “pushing” present pigment cells to the surface where they are sloughed off. The application of the masque takes approximately 20 minutes and there is no pain and little to no discomfort
The mask is removed at home by the patient after a required length of time depending on skin type. Afterwards, patients are responsible for adhering to an easy-to-follow, but strict, at-home regimen involving the application of several Melange post peel products.
You may experience slight redness after removal of the masque. The redness may last for the next 10-14 days. Approximately 48 hours after the treatment your skin will start to peel, which will generally last 3-5 days. You MUST follow the at-home regimen for optimal results. You will be provided, at no charge, with an at-home skincare product kit
