What Causes Melasma?

The cause of melasma is not fully understood. However, genetics, hormonal changes, and sun exposure are known to play important roles. For example, melasma often occurs with pregnancy, hence the term “mask of pregnancy.” Oral contraceptives can also trigger melasma.

How Is Melasma Treated?

There are several approaches to the improvement of melasma. Including our #1 treatment for Melasma, the Skin Lightening Peel.

We offer treatments for melasma and irregular pigmentation of the skin, including age spots, sun spots and Rosacea.

What is Silk Touch Rx Skin Lightening Peel?

Silk Touch Rx Skin Lightening System is a superficial chemical peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of hyper-pigmented skin. This facial peel is designed to eliminate sun-damaged skin and melasma.*

What are the Benefits of Skin Lightening Peels for Melasma/Pigmentation Treatments?

  • The first Hydroquinone+Retinoid masque for the in-office treatment of hyperpigmentation & melasma
  • Simultaneous melanin inhibition with peeling allows treatment of higher Fitzpatrick Types (darker skin)
  • Compounded freshly at time of dispensing assure potency and reliability
  • Comprehensive at-home regimen encourages compliance and reduces the likelihood of re-pigmentation

Is there any Downtime with a Silk Touch Rx Skin Lightening Peel?

This peel involves a medicated masque and an at-home skincare regimen. Downtime is a little greater (up to 7 days) but the results are amazing. A Mini-Skin Lightening Peel is available for those who need shorter downtime!

Are Skin Lightening Peels Painful?

There is no pain and little-to-no irritation during the application of the opaque creme masque, and typically, the irritation level on the following days is more like a sunburn.*
