Dermamelan Peel

The Dermamelan peel is the result of years of research by a Spanish research laboratory into skin pigmentation disorders. Hence it is now established as the gold standard when treating pigmentary disorders such as melasma.

WHAT IS A DERMAMELAN PEEL?

This treatment is a skin peel that utilises key organic acids in removing and suppressing melanin which are the cells that cause pigmentation. It is a combination of in-clinic treatment and a complete home-care protocol. The home-care kit consists of specialised creams that you will need to apply in the morning and at night.

WHO IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR?

Dermamelan is suitable for all skin types from Caucasians to darker skin tones. Whilst the treatment is designed for those with particularly bad pigmentation; it can also be used by those with minor pigmentation or sun damage but looking for a quick fix.

CONDITIONS TREATED WITH DERMAMELAN PEEL: 

Cholasma /Melasma – which is brown or dark brown patches on the skin that usually occur with hormonal changes. For example after pregnancy or when going on the contraceptive pill.
Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation – such as after acne or after other treatments that may have caused pigmentation.
Sun Damage – when you suffer from uneven skin tone caused by prolonged- exposure to the sun.

DERMAMELAN POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS?
