Complexion Correction MD Peel
Even if you diligently follow a daily skincare regimen, hyperpigmentation issues such as melasma and other dark spots can mar your complexion. White Orchid Med Spa offers a versatile menu of treatments to address these skin concerns, including our Complexion Correction MD Peel. Patients who get this Cosmelan® peel at our Vero Beach med spa see their skin lighten and take on a healthier glow within weeks of the treatment.
What It Treats
The Complexion Correction treatment is our go-to procedure for guests who want to lighten areas darkened by melasma and other pigmentation concerns such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, solar and senile lentigo (dark spots from sun exposure), and freckles. This innovative peel can be used for guests with very light skin tones to very dark skin tones. It can also be an effective treatment for concerns such as acne and acne scarring and fine lines.
We customize all treatments based on the guest’s unique needs and our nurse practitioners can also discuss alternative procedures that we use to treat melasma and hyperpigmentation, such as Forever Young BBL™ and VI Peel®.
How It Works
The active ingredients in the Complexion Correction peel work by both removing pigmented cells in the outer layers of the skin while also blocking the production of melanin. Melanin is a natural pigment that causes your skin to become darker when exposed to UV light. If your body produces excess melanin it can accumulate and result in dark spots.
Increased melanin production can be caused by certain medications, excessive sun exposure, or hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. Melasma is sometimes called the “mask of pregnancy.”
What to Expect
Treating hyperpigmentation with the Complexion Correction peel involves both an in-office treatment and a home care regimen. When you come into White Orchid Spa for the procedure we will:
- Clean and prepare your skin
- Apply the peel to your face, with thicker layers over the hyperpigmentation
Most patients experience a slight sting as the mask is applied, but that dissipates. The application process takes less than a half hour. Masks remain on for between 6 to 12 hours, depending on the amount of correction needed. You can return home after we complete the application of the mask. We’ll provide instructions on when and how to remove the mask at home, along with an after-care kit.
The home care regimen begins immediately after you remove the mask with the application of a solution to help soothe the skin. You’ll continue applying a cream up to 3 times a day for the next 2 weeks. We recommend that you take at least 5 days off from work as the peel works. Your face will be red and start peeling within a week.
A Complexion Correction peel produces remarkable results. As dead skin cells peel off, you’ll notice irregularities begin to fade. After about a week, expect to see your complexion brighten and the skin taking on a shinier glow after about 2 weeks. The results continue improving for the next few weeks as the full effects of the peel emerge.
If you remain diligent about following through with the home care, the smoother and lighter skin can last for months. Your skin will be more delicate and sensitive than you may be used to so it’s best to avoid prolonged sun exposure and always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
