WHAT IS THE TYPICAL COURSE OF TREATMENT?
We determine the type of pigmentation by thorough skin analysis and base the recommended treatment on your pigmentation history. A mild cleanser is used to cleanse the skin, before a superficial peeling agent is applied for optimised penetration of the product. A degreasing solution rounds off the preparation. The treatment is done in two stages. Firstly, a depigmentation mask is applied with which the patient goes home. Your practitioner will instruct you as to how long this stays on. The second part consists of home care, where the patient applies the provided products twice daily for a three-month period.
