The Enlighten RX peel is a 28-day program that targets sun damage and melasma. It works to remove pigment, to reduce the appearance of acne scarring/acne, to smoothen the skin’s texture, and lighten your overall complexion.
The Enlighten RX Peel takes place in the office and ranges in length from 20-35 minutes. The initial peel is applied to the face and will be left on for 8-12 hours. The staff will then give you the products that you need to continue the process at home. They will describe in detail how and when to use these products. In 2 weeks, patients will return to the office for a follow-up treatment that specifically targets the pigmented spots. The at-home skincare routine will continue according to the medical team’s directions for the duration of the 28-day procedure. It is important to note that the patient must use the at-home lightening products for the optimum results.
As a result of the Enlighten RX peel, patients will see a smoother texture and more even complexion in general. There will be a reduction in the discolored spots, a reduction in the appearance of scars, a reduction in pore size, and an overall brighter look.
There are about 2 days of downtime with the Enlighten RX peel where patients will experience redness and swelling, following the initial 2 days patients will continue to peel or flake for 1-2 weeks. During this time, the dead skin will flake away allowing for the reveal of new skin to come to the surface. Because of the swelling and redness many patients elect to take the first two days off from work because they are uncomfortable with their initial appearance. Aside from this, there is no major downtime involved.
