The integral professional depigmentation method for your hyperpigmentation.

Cosmelan® is a chemical peel system that treats hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration issues, such as irregular skin tone, sun spots, acne scars (aka post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), and melasma. It also improves the overall texture of your skin.

It treats the problem from its origin, removing spots and preventing their reappearance.

It’s a two-step depigmentation treatment involving application of the Cosmelan 1 peel at our office and regular use of the Cosmelan 2 at-home maintenance cream.

Cosmelan 1 and Cosmelan 2 also stimulate cell turnover to help eliminate melanin already accumulated in the visible layers of the skin.

The active ingredients in Cosmelan 1 include azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid, arbutine, and titanium dioxide. Cosmelan 2’s active ingredients are titanium dioxide, kojic acid, phytic acid, and ascorbic acid.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Who is the treatment suitable for?

Cosmelan Depigmentation is suited to skins that suffer from pigmentation, sun damage and more specifically Melasma. The cosmelan procedure will improve the appearance of:

  • Pigmentation and uneven tones
  • Melasma
  • Lack-lustre dull skin
  • Sun damage
  • Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
Is Cosmelan painful?
The treatment is virtually pain free. The patient will only feel some mild to moderate discomfort post treatment with peeling and dryness in certain areas.
What is the downtime of the Cosmelan procedure?
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Procedure is an intensive resurfacing treatment that provides up to 10-12 days of downtime. Your skin will be red, swollen and warm for the first 3 days post treatment and then peeling will start. Peeling and dryness can be expected for up to 7-10 days. Sun exposure is to be avoided throughout the downtime with an SPF to protect your skin and your results. All post care products are included in your treatment price which will help speed up the healing phase.
Are there any side effects having a Cosmelan treatment?
Side effects with Cosmelan treatments are rare but easily managed. Some skins may feel a little red following removal of the in-clinic mask. This may be accompanied by some minor dryness and flaking. Any tightness may be easily relieved by applying a nurturing moisturiser such as Hydra-Vital Factor K – which is supplied in your post treatment homecare pack.
It is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure following a Cosmelan treatment and to wear a broad spectrum SPF30 everyday before, during and following treatment.
When will I notice results?
Results being seen after one treatment of Cosmelan is to be expected. This can be in as little as 2 weeks post treatment or may even be 4-8 weeks post treatment depending on skin condition and concerns. Maintenance of pigmentation will always be needed due to external and internal factors.
How many treatments are needed?
The Cosmelan treatment is performed as a once off treatment. Maintenance treatments may be recommended in your initial skin consultation.
