A New Hyperpigmentation Treatment Has Arrived. Here’s All You Need to Know on Melanopeel

Melanopeel is here and set to shake up the way Australian skin therapists treat pigmentation, writes Hannah Gay.

Pigmentation is widely considered one of the most challenging and multi-faceted skin conditions to treat. 

Skin therapists and their clients alike are educated to practise patience and open-mindedness in the treatment of the condition, given treatment results can vary from person-to-person. Treatment time-frames can also be hard to predict, pending the severity of the condition faced by the client at hand.

Topical formulations designed to treat a range of pigmentation types have come a long way in recent years, with skin therapists eager to offer the most efficacious solution to their clients.

Australian skincare and device distributor, Esthetica Academy has recently unveiled a hyperpigmentation treatment set to disrupt the market. The treatment is conducted as a hybrid in-clinic and at-home system, and is designed to tackle a range of pigmentation types.

Mediha Zeeshan, CEO at Esthetica Academy answered questions on the trending Melanopeel treatment:

Describe what Melanopeel does.

“Melanopeel treatment powered by SkinGen is an advanced solution for hyperpigmentation that is designed to target dark spots, melasma, sun damage, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

The treatment uses only high-quality, medical-grade ingredients that work quickly to provide noticeable results in just one week, and its effects can last up to a year. Melanopeel’s expert formula addresses the root causes of hyperpigmentation, breaking up melanin clusters, and preventing further damage. 

The treatment is versatile and can be customised to suit the specific needs of each client. Melanopeel’s hyperpigmentation treatment is trusted by skincare professionals for its effectiveness and reliability, making it the perfect choice for anyone looking to transform their skin.”

Esthetica Academy, powered by SkinGen, has recently launched Melanopeel in Australia.

Who is the ideal candidate for this treatment?

“Ultimately, anyone looking to achieve a more radiant and even-toned complexion can benefit from Melanopeel’s hyperpigmentation treatment.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types. Clients seeking a fast-acting and long-lasting solution for hyperpigmentation concerns can benefit from Melanopeel’s medical-grade ingredients that are carefully selected for their quality and effectiveness. 

Skincare professionals looking to offer effective and reliable treatments to their clients can benefit from Melanopeel’s advanced formula, backed by years of research and development.”

How many treatments are required for the full results?

“Melanopeel’s hyperpigmentation treatment is designed to provide noticeable results in just one-to-two weeks. The full results can typically be achieved with a series of two treatments, spaced three-to-six months apart, depending on the severity of the hyperpigmentation concern. However, the exact number of treatments required to achieve full results may vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and specific needs. 

It’s important to note that proper post-treatment care, including sun protection and regular use of recommended skincare products, can help to maintain the results of the treatment for up to a year. Skincare professionals can provide customised treatment plans and recommendations to ensure their clients achieve the best possible results.”

Melanopeel was in development for two years. Discuss some of the hurdles its formulators had to overcome to get it to where it is now.

  1. “Selecting the right combination of medical-grade ingredients that can effectively address hyperpigmentation concerns while also being safe for use on the skin;
  2. Ensuring that the treatment is stable and can be consistently replicated from batch to batch;
  3. Conducting extensive testing and clinical trials to evaluate the treatment’s safety and effectiveness;
  4. Addressing potential side effects or reactions that may arise from using the treatment;
  5. And e) developing a customised treatment plan that can be tailored to each client’s unique needs and skin type.”

How is the treatment conducted (for example, 100% in clinic OR 50/50 in-clinic and at-home)?

“Melanopeel’s hyperpigmentation treatment is typically conducted in a clinical setting, with a skincare professional performing the treatment on the client. However, the treatment also involves at-home care, including the use of recommended skincare products to help maintain the results of the treatment.”

Only carefully selected practitioners will be able to offer this treatment at their clinics. What do you look for in this practitioner? Do they need to be an Esthetica Academy partner already?

“[We look for]:

  1. Training and certification – practitioners may need to have specialised training or certification in skincare, esthetics, or related fields to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise in delivering skincare treatments;
  2. Experience – practitioners with experience delivering skincare treatments and working with clients with hyperpigmentation concerns may be preferred;
  3. Reputation – practitioners with a reputation for delivering high-quality skincare treatments and achieving positive results for their clients may be preferred;
  4. Business practices – practitioners with strong business practices and a commitment to providing excellent customer service may also be preferred.

It’s important to note that practitioners do not necessarily need to be Esthetica Academy partners to offer Melanopeel’s hyperpigmentation treatment, but they may need to meet the criteria established by Esthetica.”

What does training in this treatment look like (ie. how many hours, in person or online, etc)?

“Esthetica may offer in-person training sessions or workshops for skincare professionals interested in learning more about their hyperpigmentation treatment. These training sessions may include hands-on instruction on how to perform the treatment, as well as information on the science behind the treatment, how to assess clients’ skin and determine the best treatment plan, and how to manage potential complications or side-effects.

In addition to in-person training, Melanopeel may also offer online resources and training materials, such as videos, manuals, and webinars to help practitioners stay up-to-date on the latest developments and techniques in the field.”

What are some of the key reasons a clinic owner should invest in this treatment offering over a competitor treatment?

“Melanopeel treatment is safe and effective for all skin types, customisable to meet individual needs, and designed to be less invasive than some competitors, with shorter recovery times and fewer side effects. 

The treatment can target both epidermal and dermal pigmentation and is more affordable and accessible than some other treatments.”
