The Melanage MiniPeel represents a new generation of chemical peels that help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots (hyperpigmentation). The Melanage MiniPeel uses weak acids combined with potent non-acidic ingredients that do not burn, wound or injure the skin, and for this reason can be used to treat patients with darker complexions. While some patients may feel a mild tingling sensation from the peeling solution, the treatment is virtually painless.
Melanage Minipeel FAQs
Melanage MiniPeel solution is applied during an in-office visit. The solution is removed by the patient after a required length of time depending on skin type. Patients leave the office with this solution on their face. Patients are responsible for adhering to an easy-to-follow, but strict, at-home regimen involving the application of several Melanage products following removal of the Melanage MiniPeel solution.
Results will vary but generally patients will see an improvement in the texture and appearance of skin. Although most patients experience peeling, not every patient will notice this. If you do not notice actual peeling, please know that you are still receiving all the benefits of the Melanage MiniPeel, such as: improvement of skin tone and texture and diminishment of fine lines and wrinkles.
