Brighter Lighter Skin with Cosmelan
Cosmelan is a power-level treatment program. The program was developed especially for reduction of
- Brown spots
- Skin discoloration
- Hormonal hyper pigmentation
Cosmelan has been used for years and came to North America from Europe.
It has effectively given our patients some of the highest levels of pigment reduction available in a topical formulation.
Peel performed in-office only.
What to expect after the peel?
Expect a little peeling and redness – that’s all normal!
Cosmelan will cause mild to moderate peeling and redness in the first 3 to 5 days.
To make the peeling time shorter, we do microdermabrasion before the treatment.
*Note: You MUST protect your skin from sun exposure with a sunblock to prevent hyper pigmentation return.

Cosmelan post treatment
First and Second day
- During the first three to five days of the treatment, the skin might peel and be red.
- The patient may experience an itching feeling if the skin is very sensitive.
- Slight burning and tightening of the skin is absolutely normal, especially during the first few hours right after starting the treatment.
- To relieve these problems, it is advisable to apply the mesoestetic® Hydra-vital factor K.
Reddening of the Skin
The reddening that occurs on the face after applying the mesoestetic® Cosmelan is normal and is expected.
Flaking and Peeling
Between the second and third day flaking and peeling will occur on all skin types (and more intensely in photo types I and II).
When the flaking is most intense, it is advisable to apply the Mesoestetic® Hydra-vital factor K cream, repeating this cream every two hours on the day.
Fifth and Sixth day
When peeling is complete you will notice much smoother skin. After the fifth or sixth day, your skin will be calmer and you should notice some initial fading of pigmentation.
