Cosmelan Peels FAQ

What is the Cosmelan Peel?
The Cosmelan Peel is a depigmentation treatment that removes pigmentation on the skin from former sun damage, acne marks, and melasma.

How does it work?
The Cosmelan Peel works by application of a specially formulated masque that is applied at the practice on the day of your appointment.  Since the masque must be left on for up to 8 hours, you remove it yourself at the instructed time.  

What is the downtime associated with this peel?
Initially you may experience itchiness, redness and some mild flaking.  However, these symptoms usually disappear within the first two weeks.

When do I see results?

You will experience a significant reduction in your hyperpigmentation within the first two weeks.

Can I do the Cosmelan Peel if I have active acne?
It is better to get the acne under control first before starting the Cosmelan treatment.  This is why an initial consultation at the practice  is the best way to start.
