Cosmelan Peel


The Cosmelan Peel treats hyperpigmentation in the skin by inhibiting tyrosinase, a naturally-occurring enzyme within the body. Tyrosinase directly influences melanin formation and production, and plays a significant role in the development of melasma, age spots, liver spots, and post-acne discoloration.

Before & After


Side effects associated with Cosmelan treatments are rare but in the event of an occurrence this can be easily managed. Individuals may experience mild to moderate redness with slight swelling following the removal of the in-clinic mask. During the post treatment period it is common for the skin to feel tight or itchy. Any tightness may be easily relieved by applying a nourishing moisturizer such as Hydra-Vital Factor K. It is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure following a Cosmelan treatment and to wear a broad-spectrum SPF30 every day before, during and following treatment.

Though the face is the most common area to be treated with Cosmelan, the neck, chest and backs of the hands may also be addressed. As the clinical de-pigmenting mask needs to be left on for up to 10 hours, this can create some minor inconvenience for body areas such as the chest or hands. To avoid staining to clothing, it is recommended to wear loose-fitting, dark garments whilst the mask is activating.

The unique active ingredients used in the Cosmelan depigmenting mask and cream enable effective treatment and results on all skin colors and ethnicities. The clinical mask is required to activate for 6 hours on fairer complexions, 8 hours for olive and up to 10 hours for darker complexions.

The exact number of sessions depends on the severity of your problem as well as your skin type. It is observed that most of our patients get outstanding results just after the 1st session. Hence, if you want to get long-lasting effects, then you should use the recommended products at home after the procedure. Normally, almost 1 to 3 sessions are required to get amazing outcomes.
