Cosmelan Depigmentation Peeling

Cosmelan peeling is a means of rejuvenating the skin by smoothing fine wrinkles, improving slight acne scars, pigment spots and sun damage, and refining pores.

This type of peeling is based on the inhibition of tyrosinase, an enzyme active in the production of melanin. The peeling action on the top layers of the skin also stimulates rejuvenation. The ingredients used in the peeling include azelaic acid, phytic acid, cojicic acid and vitamin C.

What is the treatment process?

The Cosmelan peeling is an outpatient treatment followed by a home care protocol.

  • During the outpatient treatment, the skin is first thoroughly cleaned and then treated with a degreasing solution. The Cosmelan mask is then applied to the entire region to be treated.
  • This mask remains on the patient’s skin for a period of time tailored to the client’s own skin condition.
  • The exposure time of the mask can range from 5 to 10 hours.
  • When the exposure time has ended, the mask is washed off with lukewarm water after which the skin is hydrated with Hydra Vital K cream.
  • A client will receive detailed instructions for the home care protocol that follows.

What to consider after the treatment?

For the subsequent home care protocol, you will receive detailed instructions from us. Sunscreen is of utmost importance and is essential for the care of the skin during and after treatment. Insufficient sun protection or strong sun exposure will stimulate the formation of new pigment spots. After the treatment, you should avoid visiting the sauna and solarium for 4 weeks. Creams and cosmetics that are not part of the home care protocol can affect the treatment’s results. In particular, vitamin A-containing drugs and other substances that contribute to pigmentation are to be avoided for 4 weeks.
