Mesoestetic® Depigmentation Treatment
Cosmelan® Depigmentation Peel
There are a large variety of chemical peels available on the market today. Almost every skin type and ethnicity can find a chemical treatment designed to restore a youthful appearance. Not all procedures will provide the same results, however. One of the newest chemical peels available at Essentials is the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel, effective for managing areas of hyperpigmentation, melisma, and blotchy or scarred skin.
Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a unique, multi-ingredient chemical treatment designed to reduce areas of skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation. Melanin is responsible for creating the skin tone, as well as splotchy areas of darker tissue. The Cosmelan Peel decreases the skin’s natural melanin production by inhibiting certain enzymes, providing an even complexion.
A Cosmelan Peel can be used to improve the look of facial skin, the abdomen, legs/hands, and the breast/nipple area. Dull skin, dry areas, dark spots, blemishes, and acne scars can be significantly reduced with the peel. Discoloration due to Melasma (Brown to grey patches over the bridge of the nose, cheeks, chin, and elsewhere on the face and body; often the result of hormonal changes) and Chloasma (similar to Melasma, referred to as the Mask of Pregnancy) can be eliminated with the Cosmelan Peel. In addition, the peel balances the skin’s oil production to improve acne.
Benefits of a Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel:
Reduces dark spots and hyperpigmentation
Effective in the treatment of Melasma and Cholasma
Gentle enough for all skin types

Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel Procedure
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a two-step process. The first part involves an in-salon application of a stimulating mask; part two is the continued application of specific Cosmelan products from home. The initial treatment will take less an hour at Essentials.
Step 1: The In-Office Mask
Skin is cleaned and prepped.
Cosmelan mask is applied in a thick layer.
Mask may lightly sting upon application, but will quickly dissipate.
Depending on the level of correction needed, the mask must stay on between six and twelve hours.
You are instructed on when and how to remove the mask at home.
An after-care kit will be provided.
Step 2: The Home Care Regimen
After the specified time, the Cosmelan mask is removed with a gentle, neutral cleanser.
Immediately, the Mesoetetic Hydra-Vital Factor K is applied to comfort the skin and protect moisture.
Peeling generally begins two to three days after the mask’s application.
Cosmelan II cream should be applied two to three times a day for two weeks.
After the first 14 days, Cosmelan II can be applied once daily.
Results from the Cosmelan Peel
Within a week, you will notice skin blemishes are beginning to fade, and a brighter a complexion is breaking through. After a couple weeks, the skin will take on a shiny, healthier glow. These results will continue to improve over the fourth or fifth week, when the full benefits of a Cosmelan Peel can be seen.
If you commit to the suggested daily routine, you will see the smooth results from the Cosmelan Peel last for many months to come. The skin will be delicate and sensitive the first two weeks after treatment; prolonged sun exposure should be avoided and a full spectrum sunscreen worn at all times.
Potential Complications from Cosmelan Peel
Mild to moderate redness and discomfort (similar to a sunburn).
It is also common for the skin to feel tight or itch.
Occasionally more serious complications, such as scarring, can occur.
