What you should look for in a good Chemical Peel For Melasma


Melasma is a skin condition that turns skin light brown, dark brown or grey and is caused by the melanin (skins tanning chemical) overproducing in a certain area of skin.

Melasma normally looks like this (pictured).

When looking for the perfect chemical peel for your skin you should take a note of these important aspects:

  1. Mild – First time using a skin peel or not got much experience with skin peels? Then start on a mild skin peel. You do not want to rush your skin.
  2. Each brand, make or product is designed for a certain skin type and this should not be ignored. Check what skin types the peel may not be effective for.
  3. Caution – You must read the instructions of any peel you decided to use. All peels can have minor temporary side effects.
  4. Never – Never decided to purchase a cheap, unbranded peel that has bad reviews. If your going to use a peel, use a professional one and spend a bit more money for your appearance. It’s very important to you.

How Do Chemical Peels Effect Melasma

Chemical peels contain important ingredients like salicylic acids, and these acids break down dead skin cells, bacteria, inflammation and swelling to help new skin grow and “shed new skin”. This is why Chemical Peels are so common and show effective results within weeks of using.

Melasma chemical peels will simply help remove, reduce and heal your existing skin and promote new skin.

There are many types of chemical peels and each are stronger or less and this helps for all skin tags, including acne, scars and chloasma.

See the video below on what you should expect when using a chemical peel.

  1. I had never met people who had Melasma.

    Great site though and one of the site I’ll probably go if someone I know have Melasma in the future.(or maybe myself one day).

  2. This is a great post. When I 14 years I got some mango milk on my face which is painful and it left some marks on my face till today. No one has to worry about mango milk, it only happens when you are harvesting unripe mangos. We had a tree in our garden. I will try first the natural way then do a professional skin peel. Thanks for the share

    • Hey Margaret

      I am sorry to hear about you being attacked by the mango juice :D

      A chemical peel will greatly reduce the marks left and make them become less visible whilst helping new skin to grow. But the natural way is very effective too and worth trying before the use of peels.

      I wish you the best of luck and a Happy Christmas :)

  3. I totally recommend the use of a 10% tca peel to get started with, then later when your skin becomes more prepared upgrade to a 20%. Then maby higher if melasma hasn’t healed and reduced.

    I started with the recommended 10% tca peel recommended and then used one 20% peel and my melasma has become unnoticeable. I really am so pleased but I did receive some minor side effects on my second peel (dry skin and a burning feel for about 30 minutes after, that was it though)

    My skin has never been better thanks to chemical peels and 85% my melasma(cheeks and uperlips) has vanished. But if you’re ready to try, start with the 10%. You can only cause problems with higher percentages.

    Anyway Good luck to you all! Chloe
