What is Dermamelan Depigmentation?
Dermamelan is a depigmentation agent that is used to treat skin conditions such as melasma, chloasma, lentigo and post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation. Dermamelan Depigmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment to reduce the skin blemishes caused by melasma and provide the skin a rejuvenated and brighter look.
How does Dermamelan work?
Dermamelan helps in reducing the pigmentation by influencing the production of melanin. The basic ingredients of Dermamelan are Ascorbic Acid, Phytic Acid, Kojic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Titanium dioxide and Arbutine. These ingredients inhibit tryosinase (the enzyme that is produces melanin) and block the production of melanin.
What is the Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment procedure?
In most cases just one treatment with home maintenance care is enough to provide excellent results. In case of deep pigmentation, you may need to undergo another treatment at an interval of three to four weeks.
A gentle vibraderm will be performed to the affected area to reduce the excessive dead skin debris on the skin surface. The Skinnotion Dermamelan technician will then apply a thick layer of Dermamelan face pack to the face. The face mask will remain on your face for the entire day. The duration for which the face mask needs to be retained on the face will depend upon the skin type. For lighter skins the mask has to be kept for eight hours while for medium and darker skins it has to be kept for ten and twelve hours respectively. The Dermamelan mask can then be washed off with the prescribed homecare products at home. From the next day, you will have to apply the Dermamelan cream at home.
At the second treatment, the Dermamelan technician will advise you on the duration for which the face mask has to be retained depending upon the results of the first treatment and the result that you will like to achieve.
The next important step in the Dermamelan treatment is the home maintenance cream. For the best results the cream needs to be applied using the 3-2-1 rule. The cream should be applied thrice daily for the first month, twice daily for the next two months and once daily for about a year depending upon your skin condition.
