The Cosmelan peel is a revolutionary, new peel or mask, most commonly used in melasma treatment, as well as the treatment of discoloration or hyperpigmentation. Cosmelan also limits the skin’s oil production to improve acne and clogged pores.
Melanin is responsible for dictating the skin tone, as well as the presence of blotchy areas of darker tissue or disclorations. The Cosmelan peel decreases the skin’s natural melanin production by inhibiting certain enzymes (mainly tyrosinase), providing patients with an even complexion.
Besides the face, Cosmelan can also reduce discolorations along the body as well; the stomach, legs/hands, and the breast/nipple area, are common areas where we use Cosmelan.
