The Ablon Skin: Melasma Master Peel and Skin Lightening System is designed to improve the texture and appearance of melasma or hyperpigmented skin. It involves a medicated masque and an at-home regimen. There is no pain and little-to-no irritation during the application of the mask, and typically, the irritation level on the following days is more like a sunburn.
The Master Peel masque is applied during an office visit and patients leave the office with the masque on their face. The Master Peel masque is then removed at home by the patient after a required length of time, depending on skin type. Patients are responsible for adhering to an easy-to-follow, but strict, at-home regimen involving the application of several Master Peel products following the masque removal.
Results may vary but generally our patients see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of skin texture, color, tightening and reduction of pore size. Although most patients experience peeling of their skin, not every patient will notice this. If you do not notice actual peeling, know that you are still receiving all the benefits of the Master Peel. The dramatic benefits are stimulation of collagen production, improvement of skin tone and texture, and diminishment of fine lines, pores and pigmentation. Proper skin evaluation by Dr. Ablon prior to your peel will help predict the outcome of your peel.
