What is Cosmelan ?

Cosmelan is an extremely effective skin treatment targeted at treating hyperpigmentation (brown/sun spots) and melasma (pregnancy mask, hormonally driven pigmentation).


It works by acting on the cells responsible for hyperpigmentation, by inhibiting melanocyte production. Continuous treatment with acids inhibits melanogenic and triggers progressive flaking of the stratum carenum. This in turn decreases melanin deposits by removing, lightening and brightening dark patches.​


To achieve best results, patients must be using a prescribed skincare regime before, during and after the course of the treatment.


  • Mechanism of Action: Cosmelan contains a combination of active ingredients, including depigmenting agents like hydroquinone and kojic acid, as well as retinoids and other substances that help to inhibit melanin production. Melanin is the pigment responsible for skin color, and overproduction of melanin can lead to hyperpigmentation.

  • Treatment Process: The Cosmelan treatment process involves the application of a mask to the affected skin area. The mask contains the active ingredients and is left on the skin for a specific period. After this time, the mask is removed, and the I will provide you strict instructions for your prescribed home care regimen.

  • Home Care: Following the in-office treatment, I will provide you with specific skincare products, including a maintenance cream, to continue the treatment at home. This helps to enhance and maintain the results achieved during the in-office treatment.

  • Expected Results: Cosmelan is known for its ability to significantly reduce the appearance of melasma and other forms of hyperpigmentation. However, individual results may vary, and multiple sessions are required for optimal results. It's extremely important to use sun protection during and after the treatment to prevent further pigmentation.

  • Side Effects: Cosmelan treatments can have side effects, which may include redness, flaking, and peeling of the skin. Some individuals may also experience temporary discomfort during and after the application of the mask. It's essential to follow the post-treatment instructions provided to minimize these effects.

  • Maintenance: To maintain the results obtained with Cosmelan, ongoing sun protection is crucial. Sunscreen with a high SPF should be used daily, and sun exposure should be minimized as much as possible, as UV radiation can trigger melasma and hyperpigmentation.

  • Consultation: Before undergoing Cosmelan treatment, it's essential to have a consultation. I will assess your skin, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine whether Cosmelan is the right treatment for you.
