Get spot-free, even skin in Dubai with this effective treatment for hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is one of the most common reasons people visit Dr. Kamil Al Rustom Skin & Laser Centre. It’s a rising problem in all ethnicities and skin types, with over 90% of people aged 30+ showing signs of hyperpigmentation.
Whether it's skin ageing caused by continuous sun exposure, facial blemishes from excessive pigmentation or other more general imperfections caused by melanin, dark blemishes are more and more commonplace problems today.
As such, discolouration, especially on the hands and face, is becoming one of the greatest aesthetic concerns of both the modern man and woman.
You can easily lose precious time and dirhams on fancy creams, but if you're really looking to effectively deal with hyperpigmentation, look no further than the dermatologist-approved Amelan Depigmentation Peel.
What is an Amelan Depigmentation Peel?
Amelan Depigmentation Peel is a unique, multi-ingredient chemical treatment designed to reduce areas of skin discolouration and hyperpigmentation.
How does Amelan Peel work?
The Amelan method acts on the cells that are responsible for skin pigmentation, inhibiting melanin production in pigmented areas and thereby reducing or lightening unsightly blemishes and spots.
After the first or second week of your chemical peel, the appearance of the skin is visibly improved.
The spots are lighter and less noticeable while the skin looks younger and glows with a new radiance. The treatment has an efficacy rate of up to 95% when treating cases of age spots, dark patches and hyperpigmentation.
Amelan chemical peel treats:
- Solar and senile lentigo.
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
- Nevus of Ota.
- Hyperpigmentation on the dorsum of hands (lentigines, hyperkeratosis), decote, anterior and posterior thorax.
- Sun and Age Spots.
What happens during an Amelan peel?
The skin is cleansed with water or special soap and a degreasing solution is applied to aid ingredient penetration. The chemical solution is applied by your dermatologist, which has to be left on the skin for 2 hours.
Patients can go home and remove mask in 2 hours by self or to stay 2 hours in the centre.
The following days after the peel, the doctor will check your progress and ensure you have not experienced any adverse side effects.
A typical treatment session is approximately 30 minutes and the application of the solution is completely painless.
However when the skin starts to peel, it’s normal to feel a mild burning sensation with some itching and sensitivity. This can last a few weeks.
What is the downtime after treatment?
There is definitely one week of downtime. With this peel, experts at Dr. Kamil al Rustom Skin & Laser Centre would advise to take a week off work and not book any special occasions.
The temporary side effects include drastic skin peeling, redness, sunburn like feeling, itching and soreness. Whilst the skin is peeling you must not pick or pull the dead skin . Instead, use the recommended aftercare products to hydrate the skin.
Your skin will peel a lot in the first week – you can peel after the first week but it will not be as noticeable.
Is there any post treatment homecare?
It is essential to follow a homecare routine. All your homecare products will be included in the price of the peel. Your doctor will advise you exactly how to use these products and you will need to follow this protocol during the required time.
How many treatments are required?
Normally, one treatment with homecare maintenance cream is enough to achieve good results. However in cases of deep pigmentation, the treatment may need to be repeated, although after the first treatment the pigmentation will be much lighter.
Contraindications for the peel?
- Very thin sensitive skin.
- Intensive sun exposure.
- Post any type of recent facial surgical procedure – the patient have to wait up to 6 months until all the scars have healed.
- Pregnant or breastfeeding.
How much does Amelan peel cost?
Amelan Chemical peel, including post treatment home care kit, costs AED 2,200.
Prior to the treatment, Dr. Kamil Al Rustom Skin & Laser Centre will offer a FREE consultation to discuss details about your medical history and which type of pigmentation you have.
This will confirm your suitability for the treatment. The dermatologist will answer all your questions about Amelan Peel, explaining in detail about the procedure, side effects and home care protocol.
