How Does a Melanage Peel Work?

The Melanage skin lightening system contains prescription strength acids and retinoids that specifically target pigmentation problems by expediting cellular turnover. These high-quality ingredients cannot be found in store-bought products at this level and must be monitored by skin specialists. These ingredients pull the hyperpigmentation cells to the skin’s surface, where they are exfoliated to reveal a radiant, even-toned complexion.

A Melanage peel is freshly curated and applied as a white mask. Depending on your skin concerns and the type of peel, the solution will stay on your skin for 2 to 10 hours. In addition, all patients are provided with an easy at-home regimen to follow post-peel. This at-home routine is essential to the treatment protocol and is key to ideal results. After lightening any pigmentation concerns you will always need to use an at home skin care routine recommended by your provider to maintain any achieved results after treatments, as melasma is only treatable not curable, you will need to protect your results to keep melanin down.

What To Expect From A Melanage Peel at M Spa Face & Body?

Your Melanage peel is applied during an in-office visit after the peel has been freshly mixed and formulated by our skin specialists. The application requires approximately twenty minutes, with a thin, uniform layer applied and allowed to dry. Patients will leave the office with the peel on their face, which will remain on for four to ten hours, depending on the severity of their skin concerns. The remainder of the Melanage Peel will continue at home with a follow-up visit in 2-4 weeks. Patients will be sent home with a detailed, easy-to-follow skincare routine and a strict at-home regimen involving the application of provided after care products to help protect and heal the skin after removing their peel.

What Are the Benefits of Melanage Peel?

The Melanage peel provides significant improvements in the appearance of the following:

  • Sunspots and age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull or dry complexion issues
  • Fine lines and moderate wrinkles

What To Expect From A Melanage Peel Treatment?

There is no discomfort associated with a Melanage Peel treatment. Most patients report a mild tingling or stinging sensation when the solution is first applied, which quickly dissipates and can be managed with a fan. It’s not unusual for the skin to feel tight and sunburned afterward. Peeling of the skin can be expected to start on the third or fourth day and continue for the remainder of the week. The renewed skin may look slightly pink for up to two weeks. It’s important that patients do not peel, pick, or itch their peeling skin at this time, as it’s essential for the dead skin cells to slough away naturally to prevent any unintentional damage. After the exfoliation and peeling process is complete, patients notice clearer, brighter, more radiant-toned skin.

How To Maintain Your Melanage Peel Results?

The best way to prolong your skin free of dark spots and pigmentation after your chemical peel is by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher every day, rain or shine. UV rays are the leading cause of freckles, age spots, and unwanted pigmentation of the skin.

Our skin experts can also recommend medical-grade skincare products to incorporate into your routine to enhance the results of your chemical peel and maintain healthy, vibrant skin.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Melanage Peel?

Patients who benefit the most from Melanage peel are typically unhappy with pigmentation, melasma, or textural issues with their skin. Melanage Peels are safe for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin and all skin tones.

During your thorough consultation with our skin experts at M Spa Face & Body, you will have a chance to discuss your skin concerns and full medication history, including any reoccurring medical skin issues that might hinder your Melanage Peel results. Also, patients should not be pregnant or breastfeeding during their peel.

If you’re unsure if a chemical peel is the right solution for your hyperpigmentation or skin concerns, schedule an in-office consultation with board-certified Dr. Deborah Miller or Physician’s Assistant Shauna McLaughlin. They can discuss a series of options best tailored for you and your ideal skin goals.
