Ladies of LUX- Perfect Peel for Melasma


Hi! My name is Abby. I’m a Medical Aesthetician at LUX Med Spa, and I have melasma. Even as a licensed skincare professional, I am faced with many of the same skincare concerns as my patients. For those of you not familiar with this less-than-desirable skin condition, melasma is hormonal hyperpigmentation. Once it shows up it’s always there, and is almost guaranteed to rear its ugly head in the summer, even with the proper use of sunscreen (reapplying every 2-3 hours) and a hat. It can even be a problem year round without the daily application of sunscreen.

So, you have melasma, and it’s darker from sun exposure. Now what?

After two beach trips, I decided it was time for a Perfect Peel, and had wonderful results after ONE peel! The Perfect Peel is a medical grade TCA peel designed to treat melasma. Once my skin was finished peeling, I started my annual routine of applying Obagi Blender (4% hydroquinone) and Obagi Tretinoin on a nightly basis. For daily sun protection, I like Skin Medica’s Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen, Broad Spectrum SPF 30+.


As you can see, my melasma was on full display after returning from the beach. The Perfect Peel gave me fabulous results! On a side note: Once you start a skincare regimen like mine it’s time to hang up that bikini and stay out of the sun! Melasma is stubborn but you have options, so take comfort in knowing that it is manageable!
