Chemical Peel Level II (MelanX)

Hyperpigmentation is an unfortunate byproduct of hormonal fluctuations, sun exposure, and the aging process. No skin color is immune to experiencing hyperpigmentation, which shows on the skin’s surface as a darker-than-normal area. Hyperpigmentation tends to be a stubborn, benign skin condition that ranges in size and depth of coloration. It takes serious dedication to get rid of it once and for all.

Chemical peels accelerate the rate at which the skin sheds. They are a go-to solution for removing unwanted pigment while also smoothing the skin’s texture and tone and refreshing the skin via exfoliation to lift away dead skin cells from the surface.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a darkening of the skin that leaves some areas darker than others.

Frequently found in those with melanated skin (skin tones that contain high levels of melanin, which is what gives the skin its color), those affected by severe hyperpigmentation often find themselves desperate to fix their skin.

Discoloration isn’t the same from one person to the next. In some, hyperpigmentation presents itself as tiny, light freckles. In others, it can surface as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (leftover discolored spots from breakouts), patchy melasma, photoaging, uneven skin tone, or other forms of discoloration. No matter the cause and the severity of your hyperpigmentation, the disparity in your complexion can be reason enough to want to correct it.

How the MelanX Peel Works

MelanX is a deep chemical peel that is a go-to treatment for lifting pigmentation off the skin to even out the skin’s tone and reveal fresh, new skin. This chemical peel is available in-office, and also available as an at-home kit that we can ship to you!

If brighter, more evenly toned skin is what you want to achieve, the Melanx Peel can help you achieve this. Our MelanX is the most advanced chemical peel and skin-lightening system on the market. It penetrates deep into the skin to lift and lighten unwanted dark marks, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, melasma, and uneven skin tone.

However, it’s essential to understand that MelanX works differently from other peels and is a process, so consistency and patience are important.

The red peel sits on the face for 12 hours before washing it off. Then, you’ll use a specialized 25-day aftercare kit that continues to lift pigment off of the face.

The Benefits of MelanX

If discolored skin, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, lingering acne scars, or uneven skin tone are problems you currently face, then the MelanX can help improve your complexion.

Common FAQs

Yes, you can use the MelanX Peel even if you are dealing with active acne breakouts. Make sure to let your esthetician know what skincare ingredients you currently use to treat your acne.

Limiting or avoiding the sun before and after the peel is best. We recommend minimal sun exposure for at least 25 days and no working out for 10-14 days.

On average, the skin peels for seven to 10 days. Since everyone's skin is different, some people stop peeling before or after that period. The peeling can be intense, so you may want to schedule time off of work and allow for some social downtime. 

You will be able to see your results after 25 days. However, some patients may see positive skin changes earlier. It's important to have patience and allow the peel to work its magic.
