Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have clear skin? If you’ve heard of the Cosmelan Peel before, it can help you eliminate blemishes, melasma, acne scars, dark spots, and even wrinkles. Read on to learn how it works and how you can get rid of those stubborn skin problems today!

Here are the 5 Things to Know About This Treatment:


  1. It Targets Pesky Hyperpigmentation

The Cosmelan peel is a unique 2-step system that reduces unwanted pigmentation and clears dark spots and patches. It is a non-invasive, painless treatment gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. It treats hyperpigmented skin and melasma and provides a long-lasting improvement in the skin. The results are a natural-looking feel, with little to no downtime and no scarring.

What exactly is Hyperpigmentation? Hyperpigmentation refers to the darkening of the skin caused by an excess of skin cells on the skin’s surface. While most people have pigmentation due to natural causes, such as age spots, freckles, or liver spots, some suffer from more severe hyperpigmentation, which they may refer to as melasma. 

The benefits are numerous:

  • Reduces skin color and discoloration
  • Reduces the appearance of scarring
  • Reduces the appearance of freckles
  • Reduce the appearance of moles
  • Reduces the appearance of dark spots
  • Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces the appearance of sun damage

Age Spots

This is the most common form of hyperpigmentation and is also known as solar lentigo, senile lentigo, and senile pigmentation. Age spots appear as brown or dark purple spots on the face and upper chest. They are the result of excessive melanin or melanocytes in the skin. They can be as small as a pencil eraser or as large as a quarter. The most common cause of age spots is sun exposure.

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, also known as PIH, occurs after the body has been exposed to an inflammatory process. It is characterized by white, red, or dark brown marks on the face. While these marks will fade, they are often permanent. The causes of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are numerous. PIH is commonly caused by sun exposure, acne, or inflammation. It may also be associated with skin conditions such as rosacea, seborrhea, and rosacea. A PIH treatment includes a series of topical treatments, making the Cosmelan peel system ideal.


Melasma is a skin condition that causes hyperpigmentation. It is characterized by patches or streaks of darker skin tones on the face. The cause of melasma is not known, but it is often associated with hormonal changes in women, birth control pills, or pregnancy. It can also occur after the use of certain medications. Although there are several melasma treatments, the Cosmelan peel may be the most effective.

Pigmented Lesions

Pigmented lesions occur when melanocyte cells are overactive. It can be caused by sun exposure, sunburn, anemia, and certain medical conditions. It can also be hereditary.

2. It gives you brighter skin 

The peel is composed of natural, safe, and effective depigmentation agents which cleanse and exfoliates the skin, revealing the newer, brighter skin underneath. The gentle sloughing of the skin and ideal ingredients allow the skin to grow new healthier skin cells. The new skin is smoother, brighter, and more radiant, and the dark pigmentation is treated and eliminated. The skin will appear more even-toned and younger-looking.

3. It is composed of unique ingredients


Besides its effectiveness, the unique blend of ingredients that work well individually to block pigmentation is good about this peel. These active ingredients, kojic acid, arbutin, azelaic acid, phytic acid, and ascorbic acid, are even more powerful together. They work synergistically to cleanse, exfoliate, and brighten the skin. It is safe for darker or olive-toned skin because it doesn’t alter the pH or the skin or cause an inflammatory process. However, if you are pregnant, nursing, or have had a baby recently, we advise you to speak with us about the safety of the treatment before proceeding.

4.  It Consists of a In Clinic and Home Treatment

The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a two-step process. Part One of our clinic’s Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is applied. The mask is applied to the face, and it can be worn for between 8 to 12 hours at a time, depending on the particular skin issue.

Our experienced staff will explain the procedure to you and will remove any pre-existing makeup.

The treatment is performed over the entire face, including around the eyes. The treatment is performed in 20 minutes. Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling. This will subside in a few minutes. The skin will be more sensitive after the treatment for a few days.

We will provide you with an aftercare treatment kit and specific instructions for removing the peel at home. To remove the mask entirely at home, you should utilize a non-irritating cleanser. In addition, you will have to apply the cream that was given to you for two weeks.

Part two is your home care regimen, where you continually use Cosmelan products. We will instruct you to use a gentle cleanser to remove the mask and apply the recommended cream.

5.  The results are significant

Unlike some chemical peels, one can see a big improvement after just one Cosmelan Peel. Here is an example of Before/After results:
