What is the Cosmelan Peel?
The Cosmelan Peel is a unique chemical facial peel specifically designed to help minimize issues with pigmentation. This peel is highly effective for treating discoloration, melisma, blotchiness, scarring, or other pigment-based problems. The Cosmelan Peel is especially suitable for patients with full facial discoloration, however it can also be used to treat smaller or more specifically targeted patches on the skin.
What Can I Expect From a Cosmelan Peel?
The Cosmelan Peel chemical solution works by temporarily subduing the production of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the dark pigment that gives our skin tone and color. It also causes issues with blotchiness, discoloration, and general pigmentation issues. With a unique blend of chemicals, the Cosmelan Peel specifically decreases the available reserves of tyrosinase, an enzyme that is largely responsible for melanin production. When this production is halted, the skin becomes more evenly toned and problems with pigmentation are effectively eliminated.
The Cosmelan Peel is relatively painless and the results are practically instant. Some mild redness, tightness, soreness or itchiness is fairly common immediately following the procedure, however these symptoms typically subside within a day or two. This peel is gentle enough for all skin types and anyone with the desire to correct pigmentation issues is a viable candidate.
The Cosmelan Peel solution takes approximately 30 minutes to be applied and the mask is then removed at home roughly six hours later. Within the first couple of days, the facial skin will begin to flake and peel and patients can expect to start seeing some of the desired results almost immediately. After about seven days, the effects of the Cosmelan Peel should be fully realized and the issues with pigmentation will be thouroughly diminished.
