Treatment of Melasma & Hyperpigmentation
- Effective on resistant or recurrent melasma
- Acts of deeper layer without irritation
- Suitable for all skin types
PRX-Reverse treatment utilises a unique formula, which makes it stand out from other existing treatments and peels. The 3-phase treatment targets melasma and hyperpigmentation in a gradual, effective, and safe way to even the skin tone and restores a clear complexion.
Melasma is a skin condition characterised by dark patches of skin or dark freckle like spots. Melasma is often referred to as “the mask of pregnancy” and is caused by sun exposure, genetics, hormones, pregnancy, and UV damage. PRX-Reverse works at targeting the overproduction of cells that make the colour of your skin – melanin.
The 3-phases of PRX-Reverse treatment:
1st phase starts with melanin oxidation and lightening, triggered by the application of both hydrogen peroxide and kojic acid. Both ingredients are able to reach the deeper layers of the dermis thanks to the use of TCA (Trichloroacetic acid), which allows easier penetration. Hydrogen Peroxide also modulates the inflammatory process at low concentrations.
2nd Phase is a peel with a high-concentration Lactic and Phytic acid with iron-chelating (removal of excess iron) action. Lactic acid reaches the basal layer and secretes the pigment from inside out (a process known as cell vacuolisation), without damaging the surface layers.
3rd Phase is a Hydroxy acid peeling that contains Glycolic, Mandelic and Salicylic Acids, which gently exfoliate the outer layers of the skin. The additional formulation of Phytic acid provides further iron-chelating action.
Patients must stop using vitamin c and/or retinol products 7 days prior to treatment, and for 7 days following treatment.
