>Dermamelan is a depigmentation treatment designed to reduce discoloured patches of skin on your face, neck, chest, hands and body.
Pioneered by Dr Eduardo Krulig, an eminent plastic surgeon from Venezuela, it works by blocking an enzyme that is fundamental to the production of melanin, a substance that gives your skin its colour. When your body produces too much melanin, discolouration of the skin, or hyperpigmentation, can result. Your skin can produce too much melanin for a variety of reasons. However, sun exposure, ageing, hormonal fluctuations and skin trauma are some of the most common causes.
Phase 1, in which a mask is applied to your skin in our modern clinic, and Phase 2, in which a maintenance product is used at home on a daily basis. The objective of the treatment is to ensure the effective removal of discoloured patches of skin, while restoring your natural luminosity.
What are the benefits of Dermamelan depigmentation treatment?
Dermamelan is useful in the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Melasma/Chloasma – patchy or generalised dark discolouration of the skin, typically resulting from hormonal changes caused by pregnancy or use of the contraceptive pill
- Brown spots – skin blemishes associated with ageing and sun exposure
- Lentigines – small, sharply circumscribed pigmented spots on the skin, which are usually surrounded by normal-looking skin
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation – darkened areas of skin associated with healing skin
- Post-laser and post-peel hyperpigmentation – darkened areas of skin associated with laser and peel skin treatments
- Blotchiness – uneven skin, caused by a range of factors, including sun exposure and genetics
Suitable for reducing pore size, improving signs of photo-ageing and photo-damage, & regulating oil secretion from sebaceous glands.
According to research studies, Dermamelan is effective in reducing up to 95% of skin pigmentation. Following receiving treatment, you should therefore benefit from plumped up, hydrated and rejuvenated skin that is free from abnormal pigmentation.
What factors do I need to consider before undergoing Dermamelan treatment?
Before undergoing Dermamelan treatment, you must take the time to learn more about the pros and cons of this therapy. While this treatment is very safe and effective, it is associated with a small risk of unwanted side effects. It is essential to understand that all skin treatments carry risks. However, if you are worried about the potential side effects of Dermamelan treatment, please do not hesitate to let one of our experienced practitioners address your concerns. Once you have learned more about Dermamelan, you will be better able to make an informed decision about undergoing treatment.
You should also determine whether you are able to afford the cost of treatment. If your budget is tight, you may wish to consider taking advantage of our Dermamelan treatment package, which consists of a complimentary consultation, skin scan analysis using state-of-the-art Reveal skin imaging technology (worth £99) and Dermamelan treatment, all for just £1359.00. You will also receive a year’s supply of Dermamelan Treatment Maintain Cream and three aftercare assessments at our conveniently located London clinic.
In the majority of cases, you will notice a significant improvement in your skin’s appearance in the week following your first treatment session.
With continued use of the Dermamelan Treatment Maintain Cream, the discoloured areas of your skin will continue to fade away. Depending on your response to treatment, you may need to visit our clinic for a second peel. However, most of our patients report complete satisfaction with their appearance at their one-month post-treatment checkup and do not feel the need to undergo a second peel.
