What is Cosmelan Peel?
Cosmelan is a professional topical depigmentation and brightening method used to treat skin discolouration, brown spots and hyperpigmentation. Melanin, a pigment that determines our skin tone, is also responsible for the darkening of our skin. Cosmelan Peel works by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for melanin production. Regulating melanin production will help to even out skin complexion and reduce pigmentation, bringing back your skin’s luminosity.
How Does It Work?
Cosmelan Peel is a two-step process that begins at Privé Clinic. First, your skin has to be cleansed and professionally degreased by our doctor before the treatment. Once the skin has been prepped, a thick layer of the Cosmelan 1 peel is applied. This mask has to stay on for a specified time ranging from 6 to 10 hours, depending on your skin type and level of pigmentation.
The rest of the treatment process is carried out at home. After the specified time, the mask is removed with water and a gentle cleanser. Right after that, the mesoestetic® Hydra-Vital Factor K cream is applied over the treated area to restore the skin’s moisture and protect new skin growth.
The second step of the Cosmelan Peel treatment involves the continuous use of the Cosmelan 2 cream to maintain the results obtained from the in-clinic treatment. Daily application of the Cosmelan 2 cream will prevent new spots from appearing and reduce pigmentation. Our doctors will advise you on the application techniques to ensure the best results.
Safety & Side Effects
After application of the peel, patients will experience side effects like redness and flaking. Peeling starts about two to three days post-treatment, during which the skin may feel tight and itchy. Application of the mesoestetic® Hydra-Vital Factor K cream will help soothe the skin.
As it is a non-invasive treatment and no anaesthesia is required, the safety margin of this treatment is high. At Privé Clinic Singapore, all our treatments are conducted by certified doctors with your needs as their first priority.
Cosmelan Peel is a leading depigmentation method as it is compatible with all skin types, and provides easy and rapid depigmenting action. While other chemical peels and brightening products only treat specific symptoms of melasma, the ingredients in Cosmelan Peel makes it an effective treatment against all types of melasma.
Additionally, Cosmelan Peel is an alternative treatment option that’s free from harsh ingredients, unlike other treatment methods that may contain hydroquinone, tretinoin or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which can cause adverse reactions.
The suitable treatments areas for Cosmelan Peel include the face, neck, chest, hands, legs and back.
