Fractional skin resurfacing has revolutionized skin care and is used to treat a number of skin conditions including:
The essence of fractional laser therapy is that only selected areas of the damaged skin are treated.
The treated skin area rapidly recovers with newer skin and healthy tissue. When therapy is done in fractions, this allows the skin to rapidly recover with little downtime. Further the side effects with this type of therapy are less and complications are very rare. In most cases, the old damaged skin is replaced by the new skin within a few days. See More >
CosmelanThe Cosmelan depigmentation peel is a breakthrough treatment that utilizes a 2 pronged approach to eliminate dark patches caused by melanin deposits. First, it deactivates a critical enzyme in the production of melanin responsible for the formation of dark spots. Secondly, it utilizes a proprietary blend of bleaching agents and botanical ingredients to eliminate existing excess pigment deposits.
The Cosmelan peel is compatible with all skin types and colors and can be used year round because of its very high safety margin. This peel has also proven to be highly effective in treating acne ravaged skin. The Cosmelan peel comes in two strength, the regular strength does not contain hydroquinone, TCA or AHA. The Cosmelan MD does contain hydorquinone as well as retnoic acid, thus giving you quicker results.
Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its color - from pale to tan to dark black - and supplies the skin's internal UV protection. Under normal circumstances, melanin is evenly distributed and invisible. But when skin undergoes repeated external stresses, especially UV rays, or is exposed to internal disruptions (such as hormonal shifts like those experienced during pregnancy) it produces more melanin than it needs. The result is uneven skin tone, blotchiness, dark patches and discolorations. Over time, this melanin accumulation becomes more visible as cell turnover slows down and skin loses its ability to shed dull layers at a youthful rate.
The Cosmelan depigmentation treatment is executed in 2 phases: the first phase consists of the application of Cosmelan I, a mask which you wear home and keep on from 4 to 8 hours, depending on your skin type as determined by the aesthetician. At the indicated time, the mask is washed off with water and a pH neutral cleanser.
The second treatment phase consists of daily application of a maintenance cream called Cosmelan 2, containing botanical acids that support the depigmentation achieved. Initially after the procedure, you may experience different sensations, varying from warm flushing to slight itching. The exfoliation process may be less noticeable until the 2nd through 5th day following the procedure, when you may notice mild peeling, itching or skin tightness. To maintain satisfactory results, a sunblock of 40 SPF or greater must be worn at all times following treatment. See More >
Melanage Skin Brightening System
Do you have uneven skin tone, deep pigment issues or melasma? The Melanage Skin Lightening System is a superficial peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of your skin. This treatment is available to people of all ages and skin types who suffer from unwanted hyperpigmentation.
The Melanage Skin Lightening Peel is an effective treatment option for patients with uneven skin tone, pigmentation or melasma. This procedure is performed in your doctor’s office, and involves applying a masque to the affected area for several hours. Patients can go home once the mask is applied, and then wash it off later at the designated time.
After the Melanage Skin Lightening procedure, patients often notice a significant appearance in the pigmented areas of their skin. Results may vary depending on each individual patient, but most are satisfied with the results of the procedure. Patients often experience peeling after treatment, although this usually goes away on its own within a few days.
This treatment can be used safely by many patients, but should not be performed on patients with active cold sores, open wounds, sunburn or excessively sensitive skin. Patients who have taken Accutane® within the last year should also not undergo this procedure. Your doctor will decide whether or not this treatment is right for you after a thorough evaluation of your condition.
How does it work?
Melanage 1 Masque is applied during an office visit where it is compounded freshly by the nurse to ensure its potency and reliability. The masque is removed by the patient after a required length of time depending on their skin type. Patients leave the office with this masque on their face. Patients are responsible for adhering to an easy-to-follow, but strict, at-home regimen involving the application of several Melanage products following masque removal.
What results can I expect?
Results will vary but generally patients will see a significant improvement in the appearance of pigmented areas. Dark spots will lighten and skin texture and tone will improve. Although most patients experience peeling of their skin, not every patient will notice this. If you do not notice actual peeling, please know that you are still receiving all the benefits of The Melanage Skin Lightening System, such as: stimulation of collagen production, improvement of skin tone and texture, and diminishment of fine lines and pigmentation. Proper skin evaluation by your doctor prior to your peel is important and will help predict the outcome of your peel.
Who should not be treated?
The Melanage Skin Lightening System SHOULD NOT be used on patients with active cold sores or warts, skin with open wounds, sunburn, excessively sensitive skin, dermatitis or inflammatory rosacea in the area to be treated. Inform your medical professional if you have any history of herpes simplex. You should also not have a Melanage Skin Lightening System if you have a history of allergies, rashes, or other skin reactions, or may be sensitive to any of the components of this treatment. This peel is not recommended if you have taken Accutane within the past year, or received chemotherapy or radiation therapy. The Melanage Peel System should not be administered to pregnant or breastfeeding (lactating) women.
