Dermamelan Depigmentation Treatment
Dr. Weksberg Servicing Toronto and the GTA, services are for Canadian citizens only.
Pigmentation and skin discolorations may be caused by many
factors including sun exposure, aging, hormonal fluctuations
such as pregnancy or menopause and trauma to the skin such
as acne. Thankfully at The Weksberg Centre for Cosmetic
Dermatology in Toronto, successfully treating these
indications is possible! Lightening the discolorations and
inhibiting the cycle which causes pigment to surface later
can be achieved with the Dermamelan Depigmentation
How is the treatment performed ?
The Dermamelan Depigmentation Treatment consists of two
phases. It is imperative that both be used to achieve
Phase 1 – A visit to the Weksberg Centre for
Cosmetic Dermatology is required, at which time your skin
will be “degreased” followed by a light
chemical peel that
is done to remove any dead skin off the surface of the
treatment area. The Dermamelan Mask is then applied to the
affected area and left on the skin for a period of time
which is determined by Dr. Fred Weksberg and is according to
your skin colour and type. On average this mask will be left
on anywhere from 7 to 10 hours and is to be removed by you
at your home. The mask should removed with a gentle cleanser
(we recommend the SwissTEC
Optimal Cleanser) and you will need to apply a special
moisturizer called Hydravital Factor K Cream afterwards.
Phase 2 - After the application of the Dermamelan
Mask at the Weksberg Centre for Cosmetic Dermatology in
Toronto, the Dermamelan Maintenance cream is to applied
daily according to the recommended protocol of Dr. Fred
Weksberg. Most patients are asked to apply the Maintenance
cream 2 to 4 times daily for the first month, gradually
decreasing the number of daily applications to one.
The treatment should be rigorously complemented with daily
use of Sun Block and
Hydra Vital Factor K Cream. The objective of this highly
effective maintenance cream is to ensure the continued
depigmentation of skin discolorations.
