Dermamelan Peel for Depigmentation
The Dermamelan Peel is a rapid medical treatment for all types of pigmentation. Pigmentation issues can be devastating for the sufferer and the psychological effects of facial pigmentation should not be discounted.
There are now extremely effective treatments for this problem that will return the skin to its natural even colour and complexion, but sun avoidance and sun protection is an important part of the aftercare to avoid recurrence.
How does dermamelan depigmentation work?
Dermamelan treatment is dramatically effective and involves very little downtime. It is an express depigmentation treatment that is effective in all types of pigmentation problems, even in resistant cases that have failed all other types of treatment.
It can be applied in any season and is compatible with all types and shades of skin. It is completely safe and the pigmented patches will usually disappear in a short period of time.
Results you can expect
There are minimal side effects (only slight redness and flaking) and there is a stabilisation of sebaceous secretion resulting in a reduction of any excessive oiliness and improvement of any acne problems. The skin becomes bright, rejuvenated and abnormal pigmentation starts to fade, with results starting to show in just 10 to 14 days.
From the first day after treatment, make-up can be worn, if required, without any problems. Suitable for all skin types this Dermamelan treatment can help reduce pigmentation marks by up to 95%.
Treatment for hyperpigmentation
Brown patches or skin discolourations (also known as melasma, chloasma or hyperpigmentation) are a consequence of many factors, including; sun exposure, ageing, the hormonal fluctuation due to pregnancy or menopause and trauma to the skin such as acne. Dermamelan is a highly effective treatment designed to lighten the discolouration and provide a smooth, even appearance to the skin.
Dermamelan Treatment consists of two phases. It is imperative that both be used according to the following directions to achieve complete success.
Phase 1 is applied in the clinic, and adjusted according to the individual’s skin type and tone.
Phase 2 maintenance applied at home following the professional treatment (products included).
What is Dermamelan?
Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment’s principal action is the reduction of discoloured patches of melanin on the face, neck, chest, hands or body.
What is melanin?
In humans, melanin is the primary determinant of skin color. It is also found in hair, the iris of the eye, and various other areas of the body such as the brain. The melanin in the skin is produced by melanocytes, which are found in the basal, or bottom layer of the epidermis.
How does dermamelan depigmentation work?
Dermamelan is what is known as a Tyrosinase Inhibitor, meaning it acts on an enzyme that is integral to the production of melanin. Thus, it blocks and can even invert this process.
