The Cosmelan® method is a unique combination of active ingredients of proven efficacy that provides it with a unique and dual action for a short- and long-term outcome:
– Corrective action: visibly removes and attenuates spots.
– Regulating action: it regulates the overproduction of pigmentation to prevent the spots’ reappearance.
Its online sale is not allowed and must be applied in aesthetic consultation. Learn more at your Mesoestetic® center.
-Spectrum solar radiation helps control skin pigmentation.
Both the peel and maintenance cream contain ingredients that suppress the overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for your natural skin tone as well as age spots and hyperpigmentation.
The Cosmelan peel penetrates deep into the skin, to decrease the natural production of tyrosinase, which catalyzes the production of melanin.
A more aggressive version, Cosmelan MD, contains hydroquinone. Cosmelan MD is compounded with 8% hydroquinone and Retin-A, and it is much more effective in reducing melasma than the over-the-counter product. Cosmelan MD is used only in medical offices, and doctors have found it uniquely capable of removing melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Your doctor may advise you to stop using topical retinoids or other skin irritants for a week or more before your Cosmelan peel. It’s also recommended to stop using other acid exfoliants, such as glycolic acid, for a week before your treatment.
On the day of your in-office procedure, your provider will cleanse your skin and then apply the Cosmelan 1 chemical peel mask. The Cosmelan mask will be yellowish-brown where applied, and you’ll go home wearing it. Depending on your skin type and sensitivity level, you’ll leave the mask on for 4–10 hours.
It’s common to feel some warmth and mild tingling. If the mask begins to flake off toward the end of the treatment, don’t worry; that’s normal. You’ll use a gentle cleanser to remove the mask.
After 24 hours, you’ll start applying Cosmelan 2 cream once or twice a day, depending on your ability to tolerate the product. Hydra-vital factor K, a moisturizing cream that contains vitamin K, is used to counterbalance any irritation from the products.
It’s important to use both steps of the treatment; otherwise, you’ll be shortchanging your skin.
You may need two or more peels to see optimal results. These initial treatments are typically done three months apart, and the Cosmelan peel can be repeated on a yearly basis to maintain your results.
As long as the home care maintenance is continued and sun exposure is strictly avoided, the results from a Cosmelan peel can last for years or be permanent.
Your cost will depend on your aesthetician or dermatologist’s level of experience and their practice location.
Be wary of Cosmelan products sold on the internet. Cosmelan is a powerful treatment and must be administered by someone who is trained to avoid adverse side effects. There are many counterfeit products available for purchase, and you won’t know if a product sold online is a fake or the real thing.
