Platinum Depigmentation Peel

The Platinum Depigmentation Peel is an advanced medical grade chemical peel and depigmentation method that effectively targets the accumulation of skin pigment at its source, leading to a gradual elimination of spots. This comprehensive treatment yields long-lasting results and consists of two phases: an initial consultation phase in clinic and a home phase lasting for four months.

During your consultation, the doctor will conduct a thorough assessment and begin the treatment with two masks for intensive depigmenting.

In the subsequent home phase, you will continue the treatment by following a detailed guideline provided by your doctor. This phase involves applying complementary products for four months, which work continuously to depigment the skin and regulate long-term pigment overproduction whilst maintaining a healthy skin barrier.

What Is Pigmentation?

Pigmentation is a skin discolouration that can appear as spots or brown patches, resulting from excessive melanin (pigment) deposition in the skin, giving rise to an uneven skin tone. There are many different types of pigmentation but common ones are melasma and solar lentigos (sun spots). The cause of these types of pigmentation are multifactorial, often resulting from a combination of genetic predisposition, accumulated sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations, environmental stressors, certain medications (e.g., oral contraceptives, some antibiotics), lifestyle habits such as tobacco smoking and ageing. The overproduction of melanin stems from disruptions in cellular mechanisms, leading to an uneven distribution of pigment.

Addressing this complex problem requires a comprehensive approach, as many medical-aesthetic treatments may prove resistant. Even after treatment, conditions such as melasma have a tendency to recur. To achieve enduring results and prevent recurrence, it is imperative to not only target the visible darkening caused by accumulated pigment but also address the cellular source of the condition. By curbing the overproduction of melanin at its root, the reappearance of these spots can be effectively thwarted.

Benefits Of The Platinum Depigmentation Peel

What Are The Key Ingredients In The Platinum Depigmentation Peel?

The new formula incorporates two exclusive patented ingredients to maximize efficacy in correcting and regulating hyperpigmentation.

These ingredients are:

  • (Syn)pigmentarget: A complex comprising three active ingredients that synergistically work to inhibit the process of pigment synthesis regulation.
  • Melaphennone: This ingredient directly acts by reducing the overproduction of pigment in melanocytes, the cells responsible for melanin synthesis.

 

Therefore it is not only effective in removing existing pigmentation but also alters cellular mechanisms such that new pigment does not form as easily, reducing the risk of recurrence.

How Is The Treatment Performed?

Consultation Phase: First, we recommend a consultation with one of our doctors to assess your suitability for The Platinum Depigmentation Peel treatment. Following which, the skin will be cleansed and an intensive depigmentation mask will be applied followed by the ion mask. The ion mask maximises the absorption and efficacy of the active depigmenting ingredients. This is left on for 4 hours and you may wash it off at home with plenty of water.

Home Phase: 48 to 72 hours later, you will continue the treatment at home with a twice-daily application of home treatment products for a duration of 4 months.

Determining Suitability For The Platinum Depigmentation Peel Treatment

To assess the suitability for your specific needs, we recommend consulting a medical doctor. They will evaluate your condition and determine whether this treatment is the right choice for you.

Is It A Completely Painless Treatment?

The Platinum Depigmentation Peel is a gradual and controlled process that leads to complete skin renewal. While some mild reactions are expected, such as redness and a warm sensation immediately after the clinic treatment, these discomforts will subside within 24-48 hours. During the home phase, redness, slight flaking and occasional sensitivity may occur, but these effects can be managed with the use of recommended home products provided by your specialist.

Compatibility With Daily Activities

As a non-invasive topical treatment, the peel does not hinder your ability to maintain a normal daily routine. However, it is vital to diligently adhere to the prescribed daily homecare regimen and minimize sun exposure as much as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is effective for treating all types of facial dark spots caused by melanin overproduction, including melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, solar and senile lentigines, and freckles.

Only 1 treatment is required to see lightening of pigmentation.

When used correctly under professional supervision, The Platinum Depigmentation Peel should not cause any long-term adverse effects. This minimally invasive topical treatment allows you to continue with your normal daily activities. During the initial consultation phase and immediately after treatment, some skin irritation or redness may occur, which is a normal and expected reaction that will subside within a few days. In the home phase, mild peeling and sensitivity may be experienced, but these symptoms can be alleviated by following the doctor-recommended home products.

Visible improvements from the treatment can be observed within a few weeks after the application of the mask during the consultation phase. During this time, melanin is removed from the outer layers of the skin, resulting in improved skin texture and a reduction in spot coloration. However, it is essential to continue the home care regimen, as simply removing accumulated melanin is insufficient and often leads to short-lived improvements. The goal is also to down-regulate melanin production for lasting results.

The Platinum Depigmentation Peel significantly reduces the appearance of spots. However, it is important to note that spots may have a tendency to reappear over time. To ensure long-lasting results, it is crucial to diligently follow the recommended homecare routine and consistently use specific photoprotection products that help prevent repigmentation. Your doctor will provide guidance on the most suitable products for your individual needs.

After the treatment, it's important to follow the home treatment regimen. Failure to do so may interrupt the treatment and prevent desired results. Applying the home depigmenting cream with regulating action is crucial for controlling pigment production and preventing the reappearance of spots. Using photoprotection, such as Melan 130 pigment control, is also essential to minimize the risk of spot recurrence and protect the skin during the treatment. It is advised to avoid direct sunlight whilst undergoing treatment. In addition, long-term sun protection will reduce the risk of recurrence after completing the treatment.
