Cosmelan Peel: the best treatment for Melasma & hyperpigmentation

What is cosmelan peel?

Cosmelan Peel is a professional skincare treatment designed to address skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, and other forms of skin discoloration. It is a highly effective depigmentation method that can help even out skin tone and promote a more radiant complexion.

How is cosmelan performed?

The Cosmelan Peel treatment involves a two-step process:

Cosmelan Mask Application: The first step is the application of a thick Cosmelan mask to the entire face or specific areas of concern. The mask contains a combination of active ingredients, including azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, and various botanical extracts. These ingredients work together to inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin coloration.

Home Maintenance: After the mask is applied, you will be provided with specific instructions for at-home maintenance. This typically includes the use of a specialized home care kit containing products to further enhance the results and support the depigmentation process. The home maintenance phase is crucial for achieving optimal outcomes.

The Cosmelan Peel treatment works by suppressing the production of melanin, reducing the appearance of existing pigmentation, and preventing the formation of new dark spots. It is particularly effective in addressing stubborn pigmentation concerns, including melasma, which can be challenging to treat with other methods.

Following the treatment, you may experience some temporary redness, tightness, or flaking of the skin. This is a normal part of the process as the skin undergoes exfoliation and renewal. It is essential to follow the post-treatment instructions provided by your skincare professional, which may include guidelines for cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection.

Visible improvements in skin tone and reduction in pigmentation usually become apparent within a few weeks of the treatment. However, multiple sessions of the Cosmelan Peel treatment may be recommended, depending on the severity of the pigmentation concern and individual response to the treatment.

It is crucial to consult with a qualified skin care professional or cosmetic dermatologist to determine if the Cosmelan Peel is suitable for your skin type and concerns. 

What skin conditions does Cosmelan peel treat?

The Cosmelan Peel is primarily used to treat and improve various skin conditions related to hyperpigmentation. It is particularly effective in addressing:

Melasma: Melasma is a common skin condition characterized by patches of dark pigmentation, typically on the face. It is often triggered by hormonal changes, sun exposure, or certain medications. The Cosmelan Peel can help reduce the appearance of melasma and even out skin tone.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: This type of hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of skin trauma, such as acne, burns, or injury. The Cosmelan Peel can help fade the pigmented marks left behind by these conditions, promoting a more even complexion.

Sun-induced hyperpigmentation: Excessive sun exposure can lead to the development of dark spots or uneven pigmentation on the skin, commonly known as sunspots or solar lentigines. The Cosmelan Peel can help lighten these spots and restore a more uniform skin tone.

Uneven skin tone and discoloration: The Cosmelan Peel is also effective in addressing general uneven skin tone and discoloration caused by factors such as aging, genetics, or environmental damage.

By inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin coloration, the Cosmelan Peel helps to reduce the appearance of existing pigmentation and prevent the formation of new dark spots. It promotes a more uniform, brighter complexion, resulting in improved skin texture and a rejuvenated appearance.

Cosmelan peel can be combined with other treatments such as microneedling, laser and dermal infusions to achieve non-invasive customized treatments with little downtime for great long term result and benefit.

What are the post procedure instructions after Cosmelan Peel?

After undergoing a Cosmelan Peel treatment, it is important to follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your skincare professional. These instructions may vary slightly depending on individual factors and the severity of the treatment. Here are some general guidelines to consider:

Leave the mask on for the specified time: Your skincare professional will inform you of the recommended duration for leaving the Cosmelan mask on your skin. It is crucial to follow this timing precisely to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of adverse reactions.

Cleanse gently: After the specified time has elapsed, you can remove the mask by gently cleansing your face with a mild, non-irritating cleanser recommended by your skincare professional. Avoid aggressive scrubbing or rubbing the treated area.

Apply the provided post-treatment products: Your skincare professional will provide you with a specialized post-treatment care kit to support the healing process and enhance the results of the Cosmelan Peel. Follow their instructions on when and how to apply these products. This typically includes a moisturizer, sunscreen, and any additional serums or creams.
