There is a fair amount of downtime when compared to Mask Peel 15 and Milk peel and the skin definitely feels more sensitive for a few days but the end results make this treatment worthwhile.

Avoid strenuous workouts, dry saunas and steam rooms. Its increased blood circulation to the face can intensify warming, tingling, itching, redness or other uncomfortable side effects on freshly peeled skin. Skip such activities on the day you use a peel and avoid for at least a week or 2 after treatment.

Wait at least one to two weeks to have your IPL hair removal treatment done provided all signs of inflammation have resolved and there are no signs of increased pigmentation.

It is advised to moisturise and hydrate however avoid creams that have active ingredients. Since peels can temporarily compromise your skin’s protective barrier, it’s important to reinforce that barrier with a medium-to-thick moisturiser. Also, drink plenty of water to help avoid dehydration that could leave your skin feeling tight. Don’t pick any dead skin coming off as it may result in scarring.

Melasma is a common skin problem. The condition causes dark, discoloured patches on your skin. It’s also called chloasma, or the “mask of pregnancy,” when it occurs in pregnant women. The condition is much more common in women than men, though men can get it too. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 90 percent of people who develop melasma are women.

 

Symptoms of melasma

Melasma causes patches of discoloration. The patches are darker than your usual skin colour. It typically occurs on the face and is symmetrical, with matching marks on both sides of the face. Other areas of your body that are often exposed to sun can also develop melasma. Brownish coloured patches usually appear on the:

  • cheeks
  • forehead
  • bridge of the nose
  • chin

It can also occur on the neck and forearms. The skin discoloration doesn’t do any physical harm, but you may feel self-conscious about the way it looks. 

Darker skin tones are more at risk than fair skin tones. Estrogen and progesterone sensitivity are also associated with the condition. This means birth control pills, pregnancy, and hormone therapy can all trigger melasma. Stress and thyroid disease are also thought to be causes of melasma.

Additionally, sun exposure can cause melasma because ultraviolet rays affect the cells that control pigment (melanocytes).
