A Cosmelan peel is a 2-step medical treatment where the peel is applied to the areas of pigmentation by a certified skin care specialist or a dermatologist and is then rinsed off after the mask is worn for few hours. After the removal of mask, a cream is applied to protect new skin growth. A cosmelan peel differs from chemical peels and skin lightning products in its ingredients. The ingredients infused in cosmelan are primarily to treat specific symptoms of Melasma. This peel may be effective for people who have suffered adverse reactions of frhydroquinone or tretinoin in the past and these harsh components are not present in a cosmelan peel.
Cosmelan peel contains; and kojic acid- an acid that is produced from different kinds of naturally-existing fungi and which obstructs the production of melanin in the skin and azelaic acid- which attacks bacteria residing on the surface of the skin and promotes production of new skin cells.
Cosmelan treatment process is based upon the inhibition of tyrosinase, a fundamental enzyme present in the production process of melanin. Many of the components constituted in the Cosmelan formula act by blocking this enzyme (tyrosinase), or even by altering the action of tyrosinase.

This form of peel is almost similar in function of alpha hydroxy or chemical peel but is formulated specifically to treat dark patches caused by pigmentation. The cosmelan peel can be performed in a dermatologist’s clinic, medical spa by an expert dermatologist. This may be a viable option for hyperpigmentation or melasma treatment if the store-bought chemical peels, serums or creams have shown limited or NO results.

The Cosmelan treatment for depigmentation offers a series of advantages compared with other kind of Depigmentation products found in the market:
While Cosmelan peel is not as harsh as those that contain hydroquinone or alpha hydroxy acids, you may experience tightening of skin, flaying and rashes and during the initial sittings. Your doctor who administered you Cosmelan peel can guide you how to subside these side effects, based on your skin needs.
Before beginning with cosmelan treatment, your doctor will thoroughly clean your skin to ensure that no dead skin cells or excess oil remains. The peel mask is then applied and left for up to 8 hours. You can remove the cosmelan peel on your own at home. You will be given a secondary cream for application on daily basis until the skin is healed. Multiple treatments will be required before noticing significant results.
In 98% of the cases, the appearance of the blemishes smoothens by 95%. One week after beginning of the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment, a noteworthy improvement of the skin is noticed. The reduction of the treated blemish is detected and the appearance of new, rejuvenated and radiant skin is observed.
At the completion of the Cosmelan process, the blemishes begin to vanish completely, so that, although the patient may be able to “trace” the area where the spot was, the truth is that the pigmentation will have gone and no one will be able to feel its appearance just by looking at it.
