Frequently Asked Questions

The Melanostop peel treatments are available in Johannesburg at Fourways, Parkhurst, Morningside, Bedfordview, West Rand and Illovo as well as in Pretoria at Brooklyn and Irene and in the Western Cape at Cape Quarter, Claremont, Constantia, Stellenbosch, Willowbridge, Paarl and KwaZulu-Natal at Durban & Umhlanga.

MELANOSTOP PEEL is a combination peel used to treat difficult epidermal pigmentation and consists of Azelaic acid, Resorcinol and Phytic acid. This combination of chemical exfoliants inhibits the formation of abnormal melanin pigmentations and breaks the cohesion of the corneal layer of keratinocytes. MELANOSTOP PEEL renews the epidermis, increasing its thickness and lightening the skin by the action of the following ingredients:

  • Azelaic acid inhibits melanocytes, lightens pigmented maculae and helps normalize the keratinization process.
  • Resorcinol is a keratolytic - it modifies permeability of cell membranes. It combats hyperpigmentation and has a whitening effect.
  • Phytic acid acts as powerful copper chelating agent, copper being an essential cofactor for activating tyrosinase. It has depigmenting and antioxidant effects.

Melanostop can be used on any patients who have hyperpigmentation, melasma and other dark skin discolorations.

Melanostop is used for Epidermal Melasma and other hyperpigmentation.

  • Exfoliating treatments are inadvisable three weeks prior to treatment
  • Do not perform any other peel or use abrasive or irritant substances five days prior to the treatment
  • Do not shave the area to be treated at least 24 hours prior to treatment
  • Facial waxing or electric depilation is discouraged until 15 days post treatment

This is a gentle peel with little to no downtime with the Melanostop peel. If there is any flaking or peeling at all, it is no more flaking than what is normally seen after a 20% glycolic peel.

All Skin Types can be treated, however with precaution for darker skin types.

After trying everything and everywhere to treat my Keloids, the Brooklyn Skin Renewal has lived up to my expectations. The staff are super friendly and helpful, informing you if every step and methods being carried out. I have seen a great reduction in side of my keliods since I started treatment, this after I lost hope in ever having something done about them. Everything is professionally, and I felt I am in good hands.
