A world-leading professional peel with a patented formula to efficiently remove signs of sun damage and pigmentation


What is it?

Cosmelan is the world-leading and one of the most effective depigmentation treatments available. It works to inhibit a specific enzyme called tyrosinase that is directly involved in the production of melanin. Targeting the cause of pigmentation, it effectively reduces the impacts whether your pigmentation is a result of UV exposure, hormones or post-inflammation as a result of acne scarring.

Cosmelan’s unique formula, which contains retinoid acid, azelaic acid, kojic acid, arbutus and ascorbic acid, gets to work deep in the skin to deliver optimum results on all types of pigmentation.

How Does it Work?

The process of undergoing a Cosmelan professional peel involves several steps to ensure optimal results. Two weeks prior to the treatment, a pre-treatment pigment stabilising kit is used. This kit helps to prepare the skin for the peel and stabilises any existing pigmentation. Additionally, a pre-treatment peel is performed in-clinic 24 hours before the Cosmelan professional peel.

During the actual treatment, the Cosmelan peel is applied to the skin in-clinic and left on for up to 12 hours. This peel is designed to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, as well as improve the texture and overall appearance of the skin.

Following treatment, a strict homecare procedure must be followed for 6–9 months. This includes the use of specific products to ensure the best possible outcome and maintain the results achieved from the treatment. By following these steps, clients can achieve significant improvements in their skin's appearance and feel more confident in their overall complexion.


What Conditions Does Cosmelan Treat?

The Cosmelan depigmentation peel is an effective treatment that addresses a range of hormone-induced skin pigmentation issues such as melasma/chloasma, which is common during pregnancy or menopause. In addition, it can be used to address other types of superficial pigmentation including sun damage, freckles and dark spots.


Who is Cosmelan suitable for?

The Cosmelan peel is suitable for all types of pigmentation and most skin types. A detailed consultation will be carried out prior to application.

How many Cosmelan sessions will I need?

Most clients only need one session with the recommended pre- and post-treatment protocols.

Does the Cosmelan depigmentation peel hurt?

The treatment application itself is not painful. However, you will feel a sensation similar to sunburn, skin tingling and redness once the peel is removed and for several days after.

How long is the downtime with the Cosmelan depigmentation peel?

There is a significant amount of downtime with the Cosmelan peel that includes redness, slight swelling, heat/burning sensations, skin shedding and peeling. You will also notice that the skin feels sensitive to post-procedure products and extreme temperatures. This is all a normal part of the procedure and we will be on hand to help you throughout this process.

Is the Cosmelan depigmentation peel safe?

The Cosmelan peel has been tried, tested and formulated to be safe for you and your skin.
