Skin pigmentation disorders affect the colour of the skin, and there are varying degrees of severity. Melamsa causes dramatic brown and grey patches, while sun damage, aging and genetics can result in pigmentation problems such as freckles and liver spots.
Until recently, dealing with unsightly pigmentation and scarring was extremely difficult, with many people resorting to heavy makeup to cover patchy areas. But thanks to the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel, areas of blotchy skin, hyperpigmentation and melasma can be dealt with quickly and effectively.
What is the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel?
The Cosmelan Peel is an innovative treatment specifically created to target skin discoloration. It works deep in the skin to reduce the production of melanin and inhibit enzymes that cause blotchiness and dark spots.
Where can it be used?
The Cosmelan peel can be used on the face and the body, targeting discolored areas and resulting in a smoother, clearer looking complexion. It is particularly effective on age spots, blemishes and acne scars, and the chemicals in the peel help balance the production of oil.

How the Cosmelan Peel works
The Cosmelan Peel is delivered in two stages. First, a stimulating mask is applied to clean, dry and prepped skin. Patients may experience a slight stinging or tingling upon initial application, but this will settle down after a few minutes. For optimal results, the mask should remain on the skin for several hours before being removed with a gentle cleansing lotion.
Stage two of the process begins with the application of a soothing gel. Peeling will begin two or three days following the application of the mask, and Cosmelan cream is applied two to three times a day for two weeks. After that, the application of the cream can be reduced to once a day.
How long does it take to see the results of a Cosmelan Peel?
Patients should notice the fading of blemishes and pigmentation after a week, with the skin also looking more youthful and refreshed. Results will continue to improve over the next four or five weeks, by which time the ultimate effects of the peel should be evident.
During the peeling process, it’s very important that patients follow the advice of their doctor and take good care of their skin. Stay out of the sun, use a quality SPF cream and be sure to moisturise using the products provided.
Those who commit to a regular skincare routine and follow advice can expect to enjoy smoother, softer and significantly less patchy skin for several months.
Does it have to be repeated?
It depends on your skin and the severity of your pigmentation. Just one treatment will dramatically improve the appearance of the skin, which patchy areas often becoming completely unnoticeable. If your pigmentation is very deep in the skin, it may be necessary for the treatment to be repeated after a few months – your surgeon will advise you of the prognosis during your consultation.
