DIFFERENT CHEMICAL PEELS AT LUCIA CLINIC
Patients can choose to have different chemical peels depending on their skin issues. All chemical peels at Lucia Clinic are of the highest quality and they successfully improve patients’ skin appearance.
COSMELAN BY MESOESTETIC®
Cosmelan depigmentation peel is an advanced procedure that involves a two-phase method for eliminating dark spots caused by melanin overproduction.
This chemical peel is one of the most successful treatments for skin lightening. It consists of chemical elements that eliminate the areas of hyperpigmentation. It can address different kinds of pigmentation including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, sun and age spots, freckles and melasma. The biggest advantage of this treatment is that it reduces the surface pigment at its source.
THE COSMELAN PEEL TREATMENT
Prior to the treatment, the patient’s face is thoroughly cleaned with the oil-removal solution. Next, the skin therapist applies Cosmelan I mask to the patient’s face. Depending on the severity of pigmentation issues, the patient needs to keep the mask on the face for 8 to 12hours – the therapist recommends the correct amount of time before the patient can remove the mask at home.
The patient is provided with the after-care home kit with detailed instructions.
AFTER-CARE TREATMENT PROTOCOL
Once the appropriate amount of time has passed, the patient removes the mask just with water.
Next day the patient starts with the prescribed moisturizer three times per day.
From the second week moisturizer is applied twice during the day, and at night the patient applies Cosmelan II cream. Sunscreen should be applied daily from the first day.
Cosmelan II cream should be used continuously at night, and SPF daily.
The patient’s skin can get dry when he/she starts applying Cosmelan II cream. It is recommended to alternate Cosmelan II with moisturizer until skin gets used to. This will reduce the sensitivities.
It is recommended to strictly follow the post-care protocol and not to break the cycle. This way the patient can expect the best results.
The Cosmelan peel is suitable for all skin tones and can be used at any time of the year. It achieves long-lasting results that include reduction of skin blemishes and brighter and more even skin complexion.
DERMAMELAN BY MESOESTETIC®
Dermamelan® is a chemical peel that successfully treats hormonally caused pigmentation like lentigo or melasma. Additionally, it improves uneven skin tone, freckles and sun-damaged skin. It can reduce the pore size, regulate oil secretion and prevent inflammations. On the whole, it returns the skin’s natural radiance and brightness.
The treatment is safe and suitable for all skin tones.
It is performed in two phases:
- Phase one involves applying the mask to the patient’s skin by a skin therapist. The patient remains in the clinic for 20 minutes until the mask has completely settled. Then a special after-care home kit is provided to the patient.
- Phase two involves keeping the mask on the face for 8 to12 hours and then removing it with water. Two days after the treatment the skin starts to peel off. When the patient’s skin stops peeling, he/she starts using the Dermamelan® after-care cream. The instructions on how to use it are given by the skin therapist. The patient uses the home-care cream for 3 to 6 months, and it is important to be consistent in this in order to achieve the best results.
