The Dermamelan Peel is used to treat melasma (masking pigmentation) as it offers an efficient lightening method for skin blemishes caused by melanin. The Dermamelan Peel is highly effective for all kinds of skin blemishes (melasma, chloasma, age-related blemishes, pregnancy blemishes and blemishes caused by oral contraceptives).
Dermamelan is compatible with any skin phenotype and by the third or fourth week of cosmetic treatment using the Dermamelan method, the skin will already show a substantial improvement. Skin discolouration being treated tends to diminish and simultaneously the skin will start to show a brighter and rejuvenated look.

Dermamelan contains a combination of acids. These acids block the production of melanin (pigment) by inhibiting tryosinase – an essential enzyme involved in the formation of pigment.
Treatment can be carried out any season of the year even in summer followed by the use of a high sun protection to guarantee treatment effectiveness.
You will start by meeting with one of our experienced practitioners to discuss your medical history, determine your eligibility, discuss details of the actual treatment and schedule a treatment time.
Your skin will be prepared with an alcohol-based solution to remove any grease/sebaceous secretions. The Dermamelan cream mask (which is brown/yellow in colour) will then be applied. You will leave the clinic with the cream mask on, so a suitable mode of transport home should be organised in advance; public transport is not advisable. After a specified time, you will be told to remove the cream mask and follow the written aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner.
There should be no discomfort or irritation to the skin while the mask is on. Once the mask is removed after the specified time the skin will feel hot and uncomfortable for around 24-48 hours. The redness will last for around 2 weeks. With skin peeling it is advised to take up to 2 weeks time off i.e. work and social events. It is important you follow the aftercare provided by your skincare practitioner.
The application of the peel takes around 15-20 minutes. Treatments are booked for 45 minutes, which gives you and the practitioner time to go through the aftercare with you.
The peel is left on the skin for between 8-12 hours (skin type depending).
Maintenance/homecare is to be used for up to 9 months after the peel to achieve the optimum result.
