What to expect during consult?
A pre-care check-up is done before the treatment to rule out the chances of any undesirable reactions.
Our doctor will decide the required number of sessions and the time gap between each treatment with a proper treatment plan based on expected results, skin type, skin tolerance etc.
After the treatment, you will be given post-treatment instructions to follow up, which will help retain the acquired results for a long time, along with how to take care further to avoid the recurrence of the problem.
The Treatment process is as follows: Cleansing of lips with a gentle cleanser. Before applying peel on the lips, the doctor will first give a patch test on a small area of the body to determine any adverse reaction. If there is no adverse reaction, a good amount of our gel peel is transferred into a small beaker. Then the gel peel is applied to the lips with the help of a thin brush all across the lips and kept on for 5 to 10 mins. The peel is then cleaned and neutralized to avoid deep penetration. Adequate sunscreen is applied after pat drying, and you can leave the clinic.

How Do Pigment Develop?
Pigments generally develop due to excessive amount of melanin ( dark pigment ) found in some cells of the body which are called “Melanocytes”. When these cells get damaged or unhealthy they start affecting melanin production. Your body may start to make more melanin thereby giving it darker color. In some cases lips also gets affected.
What Cause Lips Pigmentation?
Lot of factors can contribute to lip darkening, most common of them being excessive sun exposure, tobacco chewing or smoking, excessive consumption of caffeine, dry, dehydrated lips, hormonal imbalances, heredity factors, certain medications or medical illnesses like anemia
“Nicotine” in tobacco causes melanin production which may darken lip area.
Certain fruits such as oranges, mangoes, pineapple and vegetables like onion, garlic, parsley, celery, ginger have a substance called Psoralen. When this substance comes in contact with the UV radiation, photosensitivity reactions occur. The stimulation of cells generate an increase in the pigment.
Hormonal imbalances especially during pregnancy can cause pigment in certain areas of body including lips but once the hormones get normal the usual color returns after pregnancy
Certain medications such as antibiotics, anti malarial, anti-fungal, diuretics, non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, tetracycline and psychotropic drugs can cause melanin production.
Some medical illnesses such as anemia, Adison disease could also be one of the causes of pigment
How Does Laser Works On Lip Pigments?
Laser delivers an intense beam of light targeting specifically on melanin. This light is further absorbed and converted into heat which may either destroy the skin cells that carries pigment molecules or by dispersing the group of melanin cells.
How Does Peels Work On Lip Pigments ?
Peels are rigorous exfoliants that break up the strong cluster of melanin that produces dark spots. Peels removes the top layer of the lip skin and allowing fresh baby skin to form which is free of any pigment. The newly formed skin is evenly pigmented.
Which Of The Above Treatment Works Best ?
Both the treatment works quite effectively on pigments almost equally. Both work on exfoliating skin.A peel can work on lighter to moderate pigment whereas laser goes one step more that is from lighter to deeper pigments.
Doctor after skin examination generally would decide if you need only peel sessions or lasers or both to give desired results. The treatment protocol would generally depend on skin type and it’s current condition.
It has been observed that combination of both works wonderfully in majority cases due to the different treatment style of each of it. One being a chemical solution and other a beam of light.
Are These Treatment Painful ?
Visible and remarkable results are seen in 3-6 months span.
What Result Should I Expect?
With a proper completion of suggested treatment course by your doctor you can expect around between 70 to 80 percent of lip lightening result.
Are The Result Permanent ?
If the skin is pigmented at a deeper level, treatment may not cover completely. The lesser the depth of pigment, lighter the results comparatively.
How many treatments would be required ?
Ideally around 5 to 6 sessions but exact requirement would be decided only after skin examining. Deeper pigment would demand more sessions.
How much time will Treatment take ?
Peel treatment would take around 15 to 20 mins
Laser treatment around 30 mins
A gap of 15 to 20 is kept between each treatment session
What are the side effects ?
Minor redness, increased skin sensitivity or tenderness only for some time.
