What is a Cosmelan peel?

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).
