What Is A Dermamelan Peel?
A Dermamelan peel is a medical method for treating hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin condition that affects people of all skin types and is most likely to affect the face, arms and legs. It occurs when the skin produces more melanin (the pigment that gives skin its colour), which can make spots of patches of skin appear darker than surrounding areas.
The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are:
- Prolonged exposure to the sun;
- Skin inflammation, as a result of conditions such as acne, eczema, lupus or due to injury; and
- Melasma, due to hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy or menopause).
How Does It Work?
A Dermamelan peel works by having an intensive corrective effect on skin hyperpigmentation while regulating the overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots.
It has a dual corrective and controlling action, achieving short- and long-term results by keeping hyperpigmentation under control.
At DermCosmesis, most of our clients will only require one Dermamelan peel to see visible results. For deeper pigmentation, clients may require a follow up treatment delivered six to eight months after their initial treatment.
You can see the results in the before and after images of one of our clients below. This client had a single Dermamelan peel treatment, with the results still visible six months after the initial treatment.
Please be aware that results may vary from patient to patient and some patients may experience minor side effects. This treatment is not suitable if you are pregnant.
