We are excited to offer Mesoesthetic intimate depigmentation treatment which is a once-off procedure performed by a therapist in the office. The darkened skin is cleaned, the peel is then applied for 7 minutes, then neutralised and a mask is applied. The treated skin is wrapped in cling wrap and the post-procedure advice is given to wash off the mask with copious amounts of lukewarm water in 2 hours and apply another mask for 15 minutes and wipe it off after that.
A home serum is used daily for 1-2 months starting 2 days after the peel.
Dr Novikova also offers CO2 laser skin lightening that is only available at the Cape Town practice.
The darker skin tones are not suitable for laser skin lightening due to risk hypopigmentation (patchy white areas appearing following the laser treatment) and in such cases, we use Mesoesthetic peel. Laser skin lightening is performed in the practice. Dr Novikova will clean the skin with a special antiseptic solution and also numb the skin with cream before the procedure. Women usually need 3-6 laser sessions to get the desired result.
Bleaching can be combined with other cosmetic procedures. Bleaching is done in the doctor’s practice and does not require a general anaesthetic.
