The Enlighten Peel is a medium-depth peel best known for targeting stubborn pigment and melasma. This peel works well on all skin types and works extremely well on darker skin. This peel has become the gold standard for treating melasma.
The main active ingredients are hydroquinone and retinol. Hydroquinone suppresses pigment production, and retinol increases cellular turnover. Skin is lightened and brightened. This peel will be applied in our office, and you leave with it on. The peel has a dark yellow to light brown color and is left on the skin for 8-10 hours. After the peel is removed, your skin will look red, similar to a sunburn, and light flaking will occur for 7-10 days. We will provide you with an aftercare kit, which will assist in the healing process.
Touch up spot treatments can be done two weeks after your initial treatment. Enlighten Peel treatments can be performed every 4-6 weeks and can be done alone or in combination with one of our 30 or 60 minute facial treatments.
