Also known as the Melanage™ Pigment Peel, this chemical peel helps reduce fine lines, active acne, acne scarring, poor texture, and hyperpigmentation. The mini melanage peel is the cornerstone for the treatment of hyperpigmentation in darker skin types but also works great for brown spots in lighter skin as well. Unlike other peels, this peel can be applied to the face, neck, and décolleté.
This treatment is much milder than other chemical peels; most patients report only a gentle tingling sensation during the in-office treatment which lasts 30 minutes. The peel comes with post-peel skin care products that must be used for 30-45 days afterwards and is an essential part of the final result obtained from each peel. The Mini-Melanage™ Peel is effective in stimulating collagen production to improve the skin’s texture and tone, reducing fine lines, correcting hyperpigmentation and decreasing acne scarring.
After the treatment, you may experience some redness and flaking for about 3 days that is easily covered with makeup. This peel should be applied every four to six weeks for a series of three to six treatments to obtain an optimal result in active acne, acne scarring improvement and hyperpigmentation. This peel can be a component of the Advanced Dermapen for Acne Scarring regimen, which alternates this peel with a Dermapen treatment for the optimal improvement in hyperpigmentation and acne scarring.
