Bec's Pigmentation Treatment Diary

 
Skin health clinic melbourne skinovations pigmentation treatments

Now: Foundation free. 8 months post treatment.

 
 

Rebecca came to Skinovations to seek options for medication induced melasma.  We discussed a number of paths, and decided together that the depigmentaion peel would provide the best outcome for her. As Rebecca's skin health wasn't at its best, we started our journey by strengthening the skins foundation to ensure that Rebecca would get the best results from her treatment and her downtime would be minimised. The following photos are a mixture of Bec's and ours in clinic. 

Thanks to our lovely client Bec for sharing her story to assist others in making a decision in their own skin revision journey.

This is right before I took the mask off. It was quite dry by this stage and starting to crumble around my mouth. Worst thing about it was not being able to blow my nose for 10 hours haha!

The second pic is straight after I took the treatment off on Thursday evening. Bathroom light made it look very red. It wasn’t sore, inflamed or hot. It just looked gross.

Skin is very red and a bit swollen, swollen all day. Skin feels quite tight and inflamed, but no dry. I still went to the supermarket like this, and also for a long walk along the beach. Only a few strange looks, but I had a hat on to hide myself.

I’m starting to peel now, yay! Skin verrrrry tight and feels really dry. I can’t open my mouth fully to eat and laughing is really sore. I think it’s still a bit inflamed too. Peeling seems to be moving quite quickly as it started with just a small amount on the left of my mouth, and now it’s moving across my chin and up my nose.

I was just taking some pics to update everyone but I’ve left it a bit late and there’s no natural light! Here’s one anyway in average bathroom light. It’s the end of day 4 and swelling and redness is reducing. Skin is dry all over and also cracking and peeling. The forehead has just started this afternoon. Cheek skin is yet to show any sign of coming off! No visible improvements at this stage of the large area on my forehead but I think I see some improvement around me eyes :)

Just did a pre photo comparison this morning. Definitely starting to see a difference now - especially around the eyes. Large pieces on the forehead is starting to breakdown now too. I think a lot peeled off last night :) :) :)

Thanks guys. I’m really happy with the results so far (even though I’m scowling in the photo from this morning :) :) :)
— Bec, Day 8
 
 

Us: Inflammation is subsiding a lot faster now and skin is look great overall. Still some peeling around the mouth. Bec's skin has been supported post treatment with LED Light Therapy every second day to assist with this.

Skin’s feeling quite good now - still dry and “crumbly” around my nose and mouth but I can feel it improving each day.
— Bec, Day 10

Us: Some pigmentation has gone completely and the inflammation from the peel (redness) is subsiding to allow an easier view at the true result. The larger bit on the forehead is considerably lighter and continues to break down and her overall skin health shows a much more glowy skin! Over time her skin will only improve as Bec is on a skin supporting and revising skincare prescription to assist with further lightening and brightening. 

 
 
 
Here’s a photo from this morning. Forehead pigmentation is starting to lighten a lot now!
