Our SkinBrite Chemical Peel combats deep, resistant pigmentation caused by hormones, sun damage, and long-standing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation such as dark spots caused by acne scarring. Unlike many pigmentation treatments it can used on all skin types with excellent results for darker skin tones. 

Its unique combination of ingredients and tyronaise inhibitors, when combined with our recommended home care routine, can effectively treat pigmentation and prevent its return. An activation of the melanin hormone, through UV rays or hormonal changes, chemically activates the melanocyte cell found in the skin. It is this chemical reaction that causes pigmentation. A tyronaise inhibitor is an oxidase that significantly limits the enzyme responsible for melanin production consequently preventing further pigmentation. 

The SkinBrite Peel pulls pigmentation found in every skin layer to the surface, this includes pigmentation in the dermis that you were not even aware of. This does mean that directly after your treatment your pigmentation may appear worse, but long-term you will get the best results as there will be no underlying pigmentation waiting to relieve itself.

Does the SkinBrite Pigmentation Peel require preparation?

  • SkinBrite Cream - a brightening cream that helps to fade pigmentation and quell melanin for an even glowing skin tone 
  • SkinBrite Serum - a light serum that diminishes and prevents discolouration 

Will the peel permanently remove my pigmentation?

If you do not maintain a good home skin care routine, ideally alongside treatments, the pigmentation will return. 

Pigmentation, created at the Basal level of the skin, is caused by the melanin hormone being activated which chemically alters the melanocyte cell.

While pigmentation can be pulled out of the skin melanin has a memory so it will return unless a tyronaise inhibitor is used. The tyronaise inhibitor is an oxidase that significantly limits the enzyme responsible for melanin production consequently preventing further pigmentation.  

 

We recommend the following products to limit and prevent the development of pigmentation:

  • SkinBrite Cream - a brightening cream that helps to fade pigmentation and quell melanin for an even glowing skin tone 
  • SkinBrite Serum - a light serum that diminishes and prevents discolouration 
  • SheerZinc SPF30 - a soothing physical sunscreen that provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays, white any white residue

Who can be treated with the pigmentation peel?

The pigmentation peel is sutable for all skin tones, and it particularly effective on darker skins. It may not be suitable for all skin types as it can be too strong for sensitive skin types, your practitioner will advise at your free no obligation consultation.

The peel is ideal for mild to moderate pigmentation caused by hormones, sun damage, and long-standing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation such as dark spots caused by acne scarring. For more severe pigmentation we recommend Obagi skin care and Blue Peel 

We do not treat pigmention prior to 12 months post-partum as we prefer to let the pigmentation settle before we treat.

What will I experience during my SkinBrite Pigmentation Peel?

During your peel you will experience a warm and itchy sensation. Some of our clients say this feels slightly uncomfortable, due to the heat, but report that it is more irritating than uncomfortable. 

Directly after your peel you may experience some redness. To help soothe and heal your skin you must use the correct post treatment products, your practitioner will advise you on these during your consultation.
