Melanage Q & A

What is a Melanage Peel?

A Melanage Peel uses a special skin-lightening system to treat stubborn melasma and other skin pigmentation problems. The treatment consists of an in-office medicated mask (a chemical peel) and at-home treatments to reduce skin spots and other signs of aging.

What are the benefits of a Melanage Peel?

Some of the many revitalizing benefits you can experience after completing a Melanage Peel include:

  • Reduced melasma
  • Fewer sun spots
  • Improved skin texture
  • Better skin tone
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Clear, beautiful skin
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Even-toned skin

The Melanage Peel works well on areas of your face, chest, or neck. Your Nigro Dermatology Group specialist personalizes each treatment to give you the best possible results.

Is a Melanage Peel right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for a Melanage Peel, your aesthetic provider reviews your medical history and examines your skin in areas you’re concerned about. They discuss your desired outcome and let you know what to expect during the procedure.

What should I expect during a Melanage Peel?

During a Melanage Peel, you relax in a comfortable chair while your Nigro Dermatology Group specialist applies a medicated mask to your skin. This process might take 30 minutes or less. Plan to keep the mask on your skin for 2-10 hours, depending on your skin type. 

When you wear a Melanage mask, there’s no burning or stinging, but you might experience tightness or dryness that feels similar to a mild sunburn. However, wearing the mask isn’t painful. Your provider gives you special instructions about how to remove the mask at home.

What results should I expect from a Melanage Peel?

During the next few weeks, follow your provider’s instructions to care for your skin at home. You may experience skin peeling after each treatment and some redness that eventually subsides. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun. Over time, expect your skin tone and texture to improve and dark spots to get lighter.

Your Nigro Dermatology Group provider might recommend a series of several treatments and periodic maintenance sessions to offer you the best outcome.
