#1 Treatment for Pigmentation – Skin Lightening Peel

Silk-Touch-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.*

This peel involves a medicated masque and an at-home skin care regimen. Downtime is a little greater (up to 7 days) but the results are amazing!!!

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.*

What is Silk Touch Rx Skin Lightening Peel?

  • 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 assures potency and reliability
  • Comprehensive at-home regimen encourages compliance and reduces likelihood of re-pigmentation

A Mini-Skin Lightening Peel is available for those who need shorter downtime.

What is Melasma?

Melasma causes irregular tan, brown, or even blue/black patches on parts of the face including cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, jaw line, and upper lip. It is most often symmetrical (matching on both sides of the face).

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.

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

Schedule your complementary consultation to determine which is best suited to your condition.
