Experimental: Melanostop peel treatment group
Other: Melanostop peel
Melanostop peel treatments containing 20% azelaic acid, 10% resorcinol, 6% phytic acid, 3% tranexamic acid. (4 treatments, performed at 2-week intervals), in combination with home care products (twice daily):
- Modified Melasma Area and Severity Index (mMASI) [ Time Frame: week 1, week 7, week 11 ]
Melasma severity will be evaluated according to Modified Melasma Area and Severity Index (mMASI). Significant change of the mMASI score from baseline is expected bfore 4th and one month after 4th Melanostop peel treatments.
mMASI score is calculated by first assesing the hyperpigmented area of the face. Four areas are evaluated: forehead (F), right malar region (RM), left malar region(LM), and chin (C), corresponding to 30%, 30%, 30% and 10% of the total face. The melasma in each of the four areas is given a numerical value by rating darkness (D) and area of involvement (A).
Scoring system: Area of involvement (A), rated 0 to 6: 0= absent; 1 = <10%; 2 = 10% to 29%; 3 = 30% to 49%; 4= 50% to 69%; 5= 70% to 89%; 6= 90% to 100%. Darkness (D), rated 0 to 4: 0= absent; 1= slight; 2= mild; 3= marked; 4= severe.
mMASI total score = (0,3 x A(F) x D(F) ) + (0,3 x A(LM) x D(LM)) + (0,3 x A(RM) x D(RM)) + (0,1 x A(C) x D(C))
Total mMASI score range: 0 - 24
- Colour difference [ Time Frame: week 1, week 7, week 11 ]
CIE Lab colour will be measured within the lesion and on the control area outside of the lesion using Cortex Dermalab Combo and colour difference (delta E) will be calculated between the areas and in comparison to baseline values.
Significant change of the melasma colour from baseline and in comparison to control area is expected after 4 Melanostop peel treatments.
- Melanin index change [ Time Frame: week 1, week 7, week 11 ]
Melanin index will be measured within the lesion and on the control area outside of the lesion using Cortex Dermalab Combo Skin colour probe. Melanin index is given on a scale 0.0-99.9.
Significant change of the melanin index from baseline and in comparison to control area is expected before 4th Melanostop peel treatments and 4 weeks after last treatment.
- Area of the melasma [ Time Frame: week 1, week 7, week 11 ]Melasma area will be measured using Visioface photography analysis. Significant change of the melasma area from baseline is expected before 4th Melanostop peel treatments and 4 weeks after last treatment.
