    About Cosmelan Melasma Peel

    How does Cosmelan Melasma Peel work?

    • The peel uses kojic acid to induce a quick depigmentation action. The Kojic acid works by inhibiting melanin in the skin.
    • It physically peels the skin layers and regenerates the skin.
    • It significantly reduces the abnormal, dark, blotchy, discoloured patches on the skin.

    Who is suitable for the treatment?

    • Anyone who has melasma that has tried everything and has not responded to standard treatments.

    Who is not suitable for the treatment?

    • You should not have the treatment if you will continue to have excessive sun exposure.
    • You are not suitable if you have very thin sensitive skin.
    • You have had any type of recent facial surgical procedure – you will have to wait up to 6 months until all the scars have healed.
    • You have to wait 14 days prior to and after Botox and or Dermal Fillers.
    • You are Pregnant or Breastfeeding.
    • Have to wait 2 weeks after waxing your face or after use of depilatory creams
    • Have to wait 4 weeks after Laser Hair Removal treatment.
    • You have to stop using Glycolic acid and Retin A one week before the peel.
    • You cannot have a glycolic peel one week before the treatment.
    • Avoid using self-tanners, scrubs or exfoliating agents 48 hours before treatment – you have to wait one week after a Microdermabrasion treatment.
    • You cannot have the treatment if you are allergic to mushrooms, as the peel contains kojic acid.

    Consultation procedure

    • Prior to the treatment, you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained. This will confirm your suitability for the treatment.
    • A thorough Skin Analysis is carried out to find out what type of pigmentation you have. We will then go through the history of the pigmentation. This will allow us to establish a correct protocol for you.
    • The Therapist will go through the treatment procedure in detail, all side effects including how to deal with the temporary side effects and end results including home care & products.

    What steps are involved in the treatment?

    • The skin is cleansed with an Ultra Mild Cleanser.
    • A degreasing solution is applied to aid ingredient penetration.
    • The In clinic Mask is applied, it is left to dry for 15 minutes.
    • You are sent home with the Mask on – The Mask has to be left on the skin for 8-12 hours depending on your skin type. The Therapist will give you the exact time you will need to remove the Mask.
    • Normally we conduct these treatments in the Morning, so the Mask can be washed off by evening time.
    • After the correct time period, you will need to wash the Mask off with cold water and use the homecare products which will be included in your treatment price.
    • The following day after the peel, the Therapist will check your progress and ensure you have not experienced any adverse side effects.
    • We will check your progress and maintenance plan regularly.

    How long does the treatment take?

    • A typical treatment session is approximately 60 minutes.

    How does the treatment feel?

    • The application of the Mask is completely painless.
    • However when the skin starts to peel, it’s normal to feel a mild burning sensation with some itching and sensitivity. This can last a few weeks.

    What can I expect from the treatment?

    • Remember we cannot cure Melasma as it is mainly hormonal, we are simply treating and managing the skin condition.
    • There’s a possibility that after you peel the Melasma can return. The peel paralyses the melanin production for a long period of time. However, after the peel, the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure. Due to this the homecare cream must be used to maintain the results. The home care needs to be used for 9 months after treatment to inhibit melanin production.
    • Despite all of this we can confirm that Cosmelan Melasma peel seems to be the only effective treatment for Melasma and we have treated hundreds of clients with life changing results.

    How many treatments are required?

    • Normally one treatment with homecare maintenance cream is enough to achieve good results.
    • However in cases of deep pigmentation the treatment may need to be repeated, although after the first treatment the pigmentation will be much lighter.

    Are there any possible side effects/Downtime?

    • There is definitely one week’s worth of downtime with this peel where we would advise to take a week off work and not book any special occasions.
    • The Temporary side effects include drastic skin peeling, redness, sunburn like feeling, itching and soreness.
    • Whilst the skin is peeling you must not pick or pull the dead skin and use the aftercare products to hydrate the skin.
    • Your skin will peel a lot in the first week – you can peel after the first week but it will not be as noticeable.
    • The peel has a high safety margin and can be safely used on dark skin types.
    • Adverse Reactions to the Peels are rare but can include peeling, redness, scabbing, infection, recurrence of cold sores and prolonged sensitivity to the sun.

    Is there any Aftercare/Homecare?

    • It is essential to follow a homecare routine. All your homecare products which include a cleanser, maintenance cream, moisturiser and sun protection are included in the price of the peel.
    • Your Therapist will advise you exactly how to use these products and you need to fallow this protocol for the required time.
    • The peel paralyses the melanin production for a long period of time. However, after the peel, the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure. Due to this the homecare cream must be used to maintain the results.
    • You will need to ensure that you use the maintenance cream every day according to the therapist instructions. You will need to ensure that you keep your skin well moisturised with the Hydra Factor K cream and most importantly that you apply spf 50 Sun Protection cream every day.
    • You will be given an Aftercare Advice sheet which you will need to follow strictly.
