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, melasma, 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 will my recovery process after getting my Cosmelan Peel be like?

For the first week, redness, tightness, and peeling are common. Thereafter you’ll notice hyperpigmentation and blemishes/acne scarring starting to fade.

For the first two weeks, your skin will be hypersensitive, so be sure to:

– Use all your Cosmelan at-home products daily as directed.

– Avoid sun exposure – and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher while being outside, even while driving.

– Avoid wearing makeup or using any skincare products that aren’t recommended by your doctor during the healing process.

At your consultation, our Cosmelan Peel specialist will discuss the treatment, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

Should I stop using other products before my Cosmelan peel for the best results?

We recommend discontinued use of all topical retinoids (i.e., Retin-A), and acid exfoliants (i.e., glycolic acid), for one week before your Cosmelan Peel appointment.

At your consultation, our Cosmelan Peel specialist will discuss the treatment, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

When will I see and notice Cosmelan Peel results?

At two weeks, you’ll see your hyperpigmentation, acne, and acne scarring fade. Your initial results will continue to improve and process over time, with full results noticed by week four or five.

At your consultation, our Cosmelan Peel specialist will discuss the treatment, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

What if I get a Cosmelan Peel, but realize I want more dramatic results than it provided?

Typically around the three-week mark, you’ll return for a follow-up visit. During this time – especially if your results are not quite there yet – your provider may apply a second round of the Cosmelan 1 mask or use it to spot treat certain areas for more dramatic results.

How long will Cosmelan Peel results last?

To preserve the results of your peel, we always suggest our patients continue to apply Cosmelan 2 daily for up to one year to help suppress any additional melanin production.

The most critical to your results and how long you can enjoy them will be limiting or protecting against sun exposure. Make broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, like Elta MD [hyperlink], part of your daily beauty routine to reduce any new sunspots from developing.

How Does Cosmelan Peel Treat Hyperpigmentation?

This two-step system contains powerful ingredients like azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid, arbutin, and titanium dioxide) that penetrate deep into the skin serving to:

1. Treat skin hyperpigmentation you can see now by stimulating cell turnover to help eliminate melanin already accumulated in the visible layers of the skin – i.e., fading existing sun spots, age spots, or melasma (“the mask of pregnancy”).

2. Prevent future skin hyperpigmentation by decreasing the natural production of the tyrosinase enzyme, your melanin levels will become regulated, no longer causing blotchy areas of hyperpigmentation.

What Can I Expect From a Cosmelan Peel?

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.

Call 949-718-6900 or request a consultation at our Orange County offices so that you can learn more about the Cosmelan Peel and determine if this de-pigmentation treatment is right for you.

How long does a Cosmelan Peel treatment take?

The in-office first part of the 2-step process will take anywhere from 15 – 20 minutes, making it great to do during a quick lunch break.

The at-home second part of the process involves the daily patient application of all products provided in the kit.

These products you will be sent home with are also highly encouraged to be used daily for the first year to maintain results.

Does Getting a Cosmelan Peel hurt?

It’s common to feel some warmth and mild tingling while the peel treatment is applied in-office. For about a week following your treatment, you’ll experience the side effects of redness, tightness, and peeling.

At your consultation, our Cosmelan Peel specialist will discuss the treatment, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.
