What is Power Peel For Melasma?

The Power Peel is the gold standard for the treatment of Melasma. It is a high-performing chemical peel that removes various forms of hyperpigmentation and specializes in treating melasma, liver spots, and acne scars.

The active ingredients in Power peel include:

  • Hydroquinone (up to 8%): This skin-lightening agent is used to treat melasma in chemical peels. It inhibits melanin production to lighten dark patches and even skin tone.
  • Retinoic Acid: This acid is a form of vitamin A that works by increasing cell turnover and stimulating collagen production, which can help improve the skin's appearance. It may also help to inhibit the production of melanin.
  • Azelaic Acid: Azelaic Acid inhibits the production of melanin and possesses anti-inflammatory properties to help to improve the texture and tone of the skin
  • Kojic Acid: Kojic Acid has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that improve the appearance of the skin and inhibit melanin production.
  • Arbutin: Arbutin is a natural plant extract and a skin-lightening agent that effectively reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots, and freckles by inhibiting the production of melanin in the skin.
  • Phytic Acid: This acid is an exfoliant and skin-brightening agent that effectively improves the skin's texture and tone by removing dead skin cells and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
  • Ascorbic Acid: Ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, is a skin brightening and rejuvenating agent that improves the texture and tone of the skin by increasing collagen production, reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, and protecting the skin from environmental damage.

Power peel is effective in lighting and removing existing pigmentation. Beyond this, Power Peel inhibits tyrosinase — the enzyme responsible for melanin production to give the added advantage of protecting your skin against future pigmentation.

This treatment brightens and smooths the face while protecting it from future pigmentation. This quick, non-invasive procedure takes 45 minutes and results in a more balanced skin tone and increased confidence.

First, you must identify the cause of the Melasma to find a suitable solution. There are topical treatments for the condition, like chemical peels and lightening creams. For a more long-term result, reduce exposure to common causes like sunlight.

Following the first treatment, patients typically undergo three to six more treatments weekly. Aftercare is essential for chemical peels. One must also reduce exposure to sunlight by using full-spectrum SPF after the treatment.

Cosmelan MD peel. The Cosmelan MD peel to treat Melasma is ideal as it eliminates dead skin cells, encourages cell regrowth and collagen production, and contains ingredients that target discoloration. It also helps prevent discoloration in the future.

Cosmelan works by decreasing existing skin hyperpigmentation, especially ones due to hormonal changes. Cosmelan also functions as an inhibitor to the hormone responsible for pigmentation and hyperpigmentation (melanin). There's no 100% assurance that the Melasma will not return. Still, with proper aftercare following the initial treatment, results can last longer.

Cosmelan is an intensive treatment, so specific side effects are common. Mild side effects may include redness of the skin, itchiness, tightness, and in extreme cases, there may be scarring. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not use Cosmelan.

Results differ from one patient to another. You would, of course, immediately notice peeling on the treated areas. Within five to seven days, the skin will lose the blemishes and have a healthier appearance. Full results develop over four to six weeks.

Hyperpigmentation and melasma may be used interchangeably. However, melasma is actually a type of hyperpigmentation. This type of hyperpigmentation is more seen in females than males. The suspected causes are hormonal changes and exposure to UV rays.

Melasma made fade on its own over time. However, there may be instances where the condition remains on the skin. In both cases, there are treatment options for melasma. These could include preventive measures, such as creams and sunscreen. Other treatment options could include skin peels.

There are some instances where melasma could fade away on its own. The time frame for fading could vary widely from person to person. Some people can have melasma for an extended period of time or even their entire lifetime. If the melasma does not begin to fade on its own, treatment options are available.

Hyperpigmentation can be due to a variety of different reasons. This could determine how long it takes for hyperpigmentation to fade. Treatment options can sometimes help hyperpigmentation to begin fading if it has not started fading away on its own.
