PIGMENTATION TREATMENTS

 

ELAINE BRENNAN SKIN RENEWAL SYSTEM

The Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal System is a medium depth chemical peel based on salicylic acid and resorcinol.

The advantage of this peeling system is that the depth of penetration is controlled by special base ingredients in the peel which prohibits it from penetrating into the living cell layers. This makes the treatment safe, reliable and effective.

 

Treatment targets:

  • Pigmentation

  • Photodamage (sun spots)

  • Dull / aged skin

  • Textural irregularities

  • Acne

COSMELAN / DERMAMELAN PEEL

Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation treatment and is known as the gold standard treatment of Melasma (hormonal pigmentation).

Cosmelan and Dermamelan contain the same active ingredients to treat hyper-pigmentation, however, dermamelan is slightly stronger than cosmelan.

The treatment consists of two phases:

  1. Phase 1 takes place in the practice. It involves a detailed skin analysis and diagnosis. The Cosmelan mask is applied to the skin after which the patient is sent home with instructions to remove the mask after 8 – 12 hours.

  2. Phase 2 involves homecare over the following 3 months. In some cases longer this phase carries on for much longer.

 

Treatment targets:

  • Pigmentation (melasma / chloasma)

  • Photodamage (sun spots)

  • Textural irregularities

  • Acne
