A Mesopeel is a specially formulated chemical peel that address all types of hyperpigmentation, fades pigment, and controls melanocyte activity. Mesopeels are designed to treat and fade skin discoloration, dark spots, and photo aging, in a gentle yet efficient manner. Many delicate areas of the body, such as the axillae, groin, inner thighs, face, and under eye area, have hyperpigmentation and traditional chemical peels can be too irritating to many patients in these sensitive areas. Mesopeels, through the process of chemoexfoliation, lead to an inflammatory reaction of the reticular dermis, and induces new collagen and elastin production. Meospeels are specially formulated to treat these sensitive areas of the body without any discomfort or downtime – in only minutes. Dr. Green is an expert in chemical peels and is one of the first NYC dermatologists to incorporate Mesopeels into her private New York City practice.

What does the Mesopeel Melanostop treat?
The mesopeel Melanostop is indicated for the treatment of epidermal pigmented lesions, solar lentigos, ephelides, melasma, hyperpigmentation and similar dyschromias.

Copper is an essential cofactor for activating tyrosinase, and so it has important depigmenting and antioxidant effects, will brighten skin discoloration, and even out skin tone. The keratolytic activity of the peel increases the exfoliation of the superficial layers of the stratum corneum by altering corneocyte adhesion. The Mesopeels stimulate cell regeneration, boosts glycosaminoglycan synthesis and helps improve skin quality, and increases collagen and elastin production. The Melanostop peel is uniquely formulated for the delicate axillae, groin, upper thighs, breast, chest, buttocks, or under eye area.
