The Cosmelan peel is the perfect chemical peel for all forms of hyperpigmentation, including age spots, sunspots, melasma, freckles, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This treatment starts with an in-office medium chemical peel containing powerful ingredients like kojic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid, and azelaic acid. This chemical solution effectively exfoliates dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin and removes pigmented lesions causing uneven skin tone.
Treatment is continued at home with an after-treatment kit containing three facial creams. In total, this is a four-step treatment that chemically exfoliates the skin and regulates pigmentation to target the source of melasma, protect the skin from future sun exposure, and calm irritation.
Men and women with hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage or aging can benefit from the Cosmelan depigmentation peel. This is also a great treatment for acne scars and rough skin texture. Patients of any skin tone can receive the Cosmelan peel treatment, and it is also safe for most skin types, although sensitive skin may be more prone to redness and sensitivity. One week prior to treatment, avoid skincare products and cosmetic treatments that use glycolic acid. A series of chemical peels can be considered, depending on your goals.
There is no downtime after a Cosmelan peel, but there are a few steps to take while your skin heals. Make sure to use the prescribed creams after removing the Cosmelan mask and leave it on overnight. This needs to be used with sunscreen from the third day to 30 days after your cosmetic procedure. Peeling and skin reddening typically occurs during the first 3-5 days after treatment but new skin will quickly be revealed. It can take about 1-2 weeks for the pigmented spots to fade away, but most patients will see clearer, brighter, and healthier skin after 3-4 weeks. The Cosmelan peel solution has the power to remove dark spots and regulate the overproduction of pigmentation so that you can enjoy long-lasting beautiful skin!
