What is Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment?

Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by an abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour. Pigmentation such as Melasma can have a negative psychological and emotional impact on an individual, ultimately affecting their quality of life. At Pure Aesthetic we can offer a safe and effective solution for all skin types presenting with pigmentation concerns with the world’s leading depigmentation treatment.  

Also commonly referred to as the Cosmelan Peel, Cosmelan is a topical lightening and brightening treatment used to treat all types of pigmentation including sun damage, freckles, acne scarring and stubborn hormonal Melasma.

Frequently Asked Questions

The professional Cosmelan treatment works by decreasing the skin’s melanin production by inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase. The in clinic treatment consists of a mask applied which will remain on your skin for up to 12 hours. After the recommended application time, the Cosmelan mask (or Cosmelan peel as it is often referred to) is washed off by the client at home.  You may expect 3 to 5 days of light to heavy peeling, redness, and sensitivity.

Once you have removed the Cosmelan mask, it is necessary to continue with the daily depigmentation routine to supplement the corrective action of the method and to regulate overproduction of melanin inside the melanocyte. 

The tendency to develop pigmentation is an ongoing risk. We strongly recommend continuous use of sun protection as well as your prescribed home care products to maintain results. The Cosmelan treatment formulas have been developed from vegetable and chemical origin to guarantee maximum level of tyrosinase inhibition.

You may expect 2 to 5 days of light to heavy peeling, redness, sensitivity and mild swelling. Some clients can experience a flushed appearance for up to 2 weeks. This is greatly reduced by your follow up LED Light Therapy treatments.
