Can you do Melanostop Depigmentation peel at home
This is a medical grade procedure and has to be carried out by a trained practitioner.

Most people will experience minimal to no physical peeling following the treatment, this is one of the main benefits there is very little downtime. The treatments are performed in a course of 6, 2 weeks apart so the exfoliation is gradual.

Due to the skin cycles and how long it takes to lift pigmentation out of the skin it’s not usually until the 5th-6th treatment that you start seeing the results. This equates to around 3-4 months as the peeling process is gradual, the benefit of this being that there is minimal to no downtime.

For the best long term results we would always advise using a tyrosinase inhibitor (pigment regulator) and SPF to continue to reduce the melanin production, and reduce UV exposure by wearing a sun hat in warmer months. If you stick to these principles it’s less likely that the pigmentation will return.

Avoid extreme heat, swimming, excessive exercise, using acids, exfoliators or retinoids for 24 hours. Make-up can be worn from the following day but be sure to use clean brushes and remove thoroughly.

Our goal with a Melanostop peel is a 50%-70% reduction in the pigmentation. For further removal of pigmentation we would recommend the Cosmelan procedure however this incurs much more downtime, commitment and cost so is not for everyone. Most clients are happy with the reduction of their pigmentation after 6 treatments, a top up treatment is recommended once a month to exfoliate the skin and deliver additional key pigment regulating ingredients to the skin. Long term pigment regulating skincare and a high factor SPF is required long term to maintain the effects.
