What is a Cosmelan Peel?

Cosmelan is a highly effective, hydroquinone-based depigmentation method that uses a unique dual-action technique that produces both short-term and long-term results. Cosmelan both corrects and regulates. This means that not only will visible spots fade or disappear after treatment, but also the source of hyperpigmentation, melanocyte overproduction, is addressed. No heat is used with the treatment, and it does not affect pH levels, which makes it a very safe and gentle option for difficult-to-treat and severe skin spots. The entire treatment is made up of 4 distinct phases that require committed application by the patient for optimal outcomes. These phases are outlined below.

Many patients begin to see results after just a few days, but optimal results should be beautifully visible after about 3-6 weeks.
