If you’re between the ages of 20 and 50 and you’ve noticed some irregularly shaped areas of tan, light brown or grayish-blue discoloration on your skin, you could be an excellent candidate for the Dermaceutic Spot Peel. These areas are called Melasma by your dermatologist, and they are common on the cheeks, upper lip and chin and on the forehead. If resurfacing with lasers seems a little bit too over the top, but you’re open to something besides caking on another layer of makeup to try to hide these dark spots, consider a Dermaceutic Spot Peel.
A Dermaceutic Spot Peel can dramatically reduce dark pigmentation marks, the “mask of pregnancy” and post-inflammatory pigmentation. It can also be used in combination with other cosmetic procedures with excellent results, such as IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments. This spot peel is simple, quick and it’s painless, too! It uses no sources of energy: no heat, no lasers. And no injections or surgery!
In addition to treating Melasma and the darkly pigmented spots of pregnancy, Dermaceutic Spot Peel is also helpful for people who have actinic Keratoses. These are also known as pre-cancerous spots. There are certain circumstances in which the use of this treatment should be avoided. Dermaceutic Spot Peel should not be used if you are pregnant or nursing, or if your immune system is compromised. It should also not be used by those with chronic inflammatory autoimmunity disorders such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis, etc.
The best time to undergo a Dermaceutic Spot Peel is when you have had limited sun exposure, and also you should not have the treatment if you have been tanning or have had recent hair removal procedures or microdermabrasion.
There is a wonderful line of skin care products to use for your pre-treatment preparation. About two weeks before your spot peel, you will begin cleansing your skin twice daily with a special foam cleanser and rinsing well. You will apply a special moisturizer in the morning and a great nourishing cream every night.
On the day of your scheduled peel, your provider will apply the peel to your prepared area. This will remain on your skin for at least eight hours, but don’t worry! No one will be able to see it! You may notice some burning and itching after application of the peel. This is normal and may last up to several days. It’s best to take things easy until you’re feeling better. It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions and to avoid exposure to the sun and ultraviolet light for at least eight weeks.
The results of this simple peel are truly remarkable! You’ll be thrilled with the radiant, glowing look you achieve with the Dermaceutic Spot Peel! It’s the real you, only better!
