About the treatment
Melasma is a light brown mark with an uneven surface that generally appears in women over various areas on their faces. Melasmas are essentially the result of a genetic predisposition, exposure to sunlight, and oestrogen (this can be through pregnancy or contraception).
An Amelan treatment programme generally begins with a preparatory peel, such as mandelic acid. Then, Amelan, which looks like a light-brown paste, is applied in thick layer on the areas being treated, where it is left for 8 hours. To find out more about Amelan and how it works to remove marks on the skin, book an appointment with our specialist nurse, Elisabeth.
