Frequently Asked Questions

The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a moderate chemical treatment designed to decrease areas of hyper-pigmentation, reducing the pigmentation that occurs due to sun exposure, acne, ageing, and hormone fluctuation.How does Cosmelan work? Cosmelan inhibits an enzyme called Tyrosinase, responsible for the manufacture of melanin. By slowing the melanin production, dark areas of pigmentation will soon fade.

Cosmelan Treatment

  • The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a two-step process. The first part involves an in-clinic application of a powerful, stimulating mask:
  • Skin is cleaned and prepped.
  • Cosmelan mask is applied.
  • Depending on the level of correction needed, the mask must stay on between six and twelve hours.
  • The mask resembles ‘smooth peanut butter’ so ensure you have no other social plans for the day!

 

You will be advised on your timings, and when and how to remove the mask at home.

An after-care kit will be provided with full instructions

The second part is the continued application of specific Cosmelan products from home. Again full instructions and advice regarding your aftercare is provided. We see you again 48 hours following your mask application to review your skin, we then take you through your next month of aftercare which does require application of your products three times per day.

One month later we review your skin, by this time much of the visible pigmentation will have faded, we then advise your next two months aftercare which is using your products just twice a day.

At the end of month three, we review your results again, you will be used to your fabulous new skin tone by this time so it is crucial to continue with your at home care and again we take you through your next four to twelve months which is using your Cosmelan creams just once a day.

Throughout your whole treatment you must commit to a daily application of a very high SPF, this must be used throughout the year and is advised as part of your skin care regime moving forward to maintain results.

Day 1:

  • Use a spray bottle with water to keep the mask moist if it begins to flake or feel dry.
  • Please remove your peel at the allocated time
  • Set an alarm reminder for yourself.
  • Use lots of cold water to remove the mask. Towel off and apply the Melan Recovery Cream. You may feel some warmth/stinging/itchy sensations following removal of the peel. Cool air/fan will help to ease this discomfort. Use Melan Recovery Cream as necessary over the first few days to relieve these symptoms.

 

Day 2:

  • Use a gentle cleanser to wash skin and then towel dry. 
  • Apply Melan Recovery Cream am/pm and as needed.
  • Use Melan 130+ Mesoprotech SPF during the day. 

 

Day 3-30:

  • Use a gentle cleanser to wash skin and then towel dry.
  • It is ok to begin using Hydratonic when the skin is comfortable doing so if desired.
  • Start Cosmelan 2 cream (48 hours after initial treatment), pea size amount, three times a day.
  • Apply Melan Recovery Cream 15 minutes after Cosmelan 2.
  • Use Melan 130+ Mesoprotech SPF during the day

 

Month 2:

  • Use a gentle cleanser to wash skin and then towel dry.
  • Hydratonic if desired.
  • Apply Cosmelan 2 twice a day, morning and evening.
  • Apply Melan Recovery Cream 15 minutes after Cosmelan 2.
  • Use Melan 130+ Mesoprotech SPF during the day.

 

Month 3:

  • Use a gentle cleanser to wash skin and then towel dry.
  • Hydratonic if desired.
  • Use Melan Recovery Cream in the morning followed by Melan 130+ Mesoprotech SPF during the day.
  • Apply Cosmelan 2 in the evening after cleansing and follow with Melan Recovery Cream 15 minutes later.

The use of Cosmelan 2 cream can be adjusted for patient comfort. If skin is feeling sensitive, decrease use of Cosmelan 2 cream until you can tolerate it.

After about one week, you will see the skin beginning to look brighter and more even in tone and by four weeks you would expect to see a significant improvement in your skin tone. However the protocol must be followed for 9-12 months to help prevent the pigmentation reappearing

Two to three days after the treatment is applied, the skin will begin to flake, crack and peel. For these first few days, the face may feel tight, itch, and be slightly red and swollen. It is possible to continue to peel for the next four weeks post treatment, we can help you manage dry and sensitive skin on the protocol.

Sometimes as pigmentation lifts from the dermis to the epidermis, patches of pigmentation can appear darker, this is a positive sign that we can help to improve with the programme.

Day 1:

  • Use a spray bottle with water to keep the mask moist if it begins to flake or feel dry.
  • Please remove your peel at the allocated time
  • Set an alarm reminder for yourself.
  • Use lots of cold water to remove the mask. Towel off and apply the Melan Recovery Cream. You may feel some warmth/stinging/itchy sensations following removal of the peel.
