The Estelan regime begins in the clinic. The face is double cleansed with Degreasing Solution and Pre-Peel Solution. The Estelan 1 Mask Cream is then applied and left on for 4 to 6 hours. Most patients opt to go home immediately after this application. The cream is washed off with cool tap water at the end of the treatment time.
To reduce redness and excessive inflammation at this stage, Skin Tech IPLase cream or a SRS CO2 Gel mask can be applied at this time, and whenever the skin feels irritated during this initial treatment phase.
The second phase of the Estelan treatment continues at home, with the application of Estelan 2 Cream. This home maintenance cream helps secure complete depigmentation with the association of whitening agents such as Vitamin C, Kojic Acid and Phytic Acid. This is applied twice daily initially, then maintained with once daily application for a minimum of 3 months.
Expected Recovery Process
During the first two to three days of treatment, itching and redness are common. Slight burning and skin tightening are also common in the first 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Gentle peeling occurs on the second and third days. The Skin Tech IPLase cream is particularly useful at this time to reduce skin irritation and flaking.
