What is a Dermamelan Peel?

A Dermamelan peel is a facial skin peel treatment designed to improve stubborn hormonal based pigmentation conditions such as melasma, chloasma and lentigo.

It can also be effective in reducing the signs of photo-damage on the skin, regulating oil secretion, reducing pore size and helping to prevent breakouts. It also improves the overall luminosity, glow and tone of the skin.

The peel itself contains a variety of active ingredients such as Kojic Acid, Phytic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Arbutine, Titanium Dioxide and Retinyl Palmitate. These agents block the production of melanin by irreversibly inhibiting tryosinase which is an enzyme involved mainly in melanin synthesis to help reduce pigmentation formation.

This process does not make the melanocytes disappear, but simply paralyses or stops melanin production, without risk of white blemishes appearing, thus, improving the complexion of the skin long term.

The application is quick and straightforward and takes approximately 20 minutes - you will then leave with the clinic with the mask left on your face and it must sit for around 12 hours. You can eventually remove the mask at home with soap and water as directed, you will then need to adhere to the maintenance routine as instructed by your practitioner.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Dermamelan mask is usually applied once but if you have severe pigmentation then a second mask can be applied a couple of weeks after your first treatment to ensure you get the best possible results.

To enhance further, you are recommended to use the specific Dermamelan home care products for several months after your treatment.

Dermamelan peel treatments are specifically designed to treat the facial area.

Your Dermamelan peel treatment will be performed by one of our onsite aesthetic practitioners.

No longer than 20 minutes per treatment.

The most typical side effects include; redness, peeling and flaking of the skin during the first week following your Dermamelan peel treatment – these are very common and completely normal.

You may feel a tightness of the skin for a couple of days after the mask is removed. You will most certainly experience redness following the removal of the mask and when you first start using the at-home products but this soon subsides after a few days, you will then notice peeling or flaking of the skin during the first week following your Dermamelan peel treatment - we can provide you with a specific moisturiser to relieve this.

There is no downtime, but you may prefer to take a couple of days off work following your treatment for the peeling to settle.

Depending on the severity of your pigmentation and the speed at which you fully heal after your treatment (usually around 3-6 days) you will then see a noticeable improvement in the tone and luminosity of the skin after approximately 2-8 weeks.

Your practitioner will advise you on how to use any homecare products which will prevent further pigmentation recurring.
