What is a Cosmelan Peel?
A Cosmelan peel is a two-step treatment where the peel is applied to the skin by a licensed dermatologist or certified skin care professional and is then washed off at home after the mask is worn for several hours. Once the mask is removed, a secondary cream is applied to protect new skin growth. A cosmelan peel differs from other skin brightening products and chemical peels in its ingredients, which are designed to treat the specific symptoms of melasma, which can occur during hormone changes in the body due to pregnancy or menopause, and hyperpigmentation, which can occur due to sun exposure or genetics. This type of peel may be beneficial to those who have tried creams that contain hydroquinone or tretinoin in the past and suffered adverse reactions to these harsh ingredients, as a cosmelan peel does not contain them.
