Are you struggling with hyperpigmentation, sun spots, or uneven skin tone? The Cosmelan peel treatment can help. This innovative treatment goes beyond traditional peels, offering a comprehensive approach to achieving a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Benefits of Cosmelan peel treatment

The Cosmelan peel is a popular treatment for hyperpigmentation, which is the darkening of the skin. It is often used to treat conditions such as melasma, freckles, and sun spots. The benefits of Cosmelan peel treatment:

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation and dark spots: The Cosmelan peel is highly effective at reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots. It works by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color.
  • Treats melasma: Melasma is a common skin condition that causes brown or gray patches to form on the face, usually on the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, and upper lip. The Cosmelan peel is one of the most effective treatments for melasma.
  • Minimal discomfort: The Cosmelan peel is a relatively painless procedure. You may experience some mild stinging or burning during the application, but this is usually well-tolerated.
  • Quick results: You can start to see results from the Cosmelan peel within a few weeks, with continued improvement over the following months.
  • Suitable for all skin types: The Cosmelan peel is safe for use on all skin types, although it is important to consult with a dermatologist to determine if it is right for you.

Treatment steps:

he Cosmelan peel is a depigmentation treatment used to lighten dark spots on the face and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. It is a five-phase treatment that combines a professional in-office treatment with at-home care.

Step I: Consultation:

Consultation takes place in person or virtually with our medical provider. During the consultation, we will review your medical history to rule out any contraindications. We also explain in detail the procedure, give pre and post-treatment instructions and answer your questions.

Step II: Preparation (2-4 weeks prior)

In this phase, you will need to use a prescribed skin lightening cream to help prepare your skin for the peel. This helps to increase the effectiveness of the treatment and reduce the risk of side effects.

Step III: In-office treatment

During the in-office treatment, we will apply the Cosmelan mask to your face. The mask contains a combination of ingredients that work to lighten dark spots, including kojic acid, azelaic acid, and hydroquinone. The mask will be left on your face for 8-12  hours, depending on your skin type and the severity of your hyperpigmentation. The mask should be removed after time elapsed. 

We will provide you aftercare kit and instruct you on how to remove the mask at home.

Step IV: Home Care

After the mask is removed, you will need to follow a strict post-peel care regimen. This will typically involve using a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. You will also need to avoid sun exposure as much as possible, as this can worsen hyperpigmentation.

Step V: Post-treatment

We will see you 4 weeks after the initial treatment. We evaluate your skin response and possibly reapply the peel on more stubborn areas of pigmentation.

Once you have completed the Cosmelan peel treatment, it is important to continue using a daily sunscreen and a gentle skin care routine to help maintain your results and prevent future hyperpigmentation.

How does Cosmelan peel work?

Cosmelan peel works based on a double mechanism of action. One part is the corrective effect of eliminating hyperpigmentation. Another one is the regulatory effect, which controls the overproduction of melanin (the cell responsible for hyperpigmentation).

When will I see the result?

The result ( sun damage shedding, discoloration, peeling) is noticeable by two weeks after initial treatment. The total result is after complete treatment, which is between 4-6 weeks when we do touch up.
