Since they are available in different depths, chemical peels are a perfect option for rejuvenating most skin types.

Cosmelan Peel

The cosmelan peel treatment is the most effective chemical peel on the market for hyperpigmentation – dark spots on your face that result from hormonal changes or sun damage. As a powerful depigmentation treatment, cosmelan peels treat difficult hyperpigmentation cases like melasma and severe sun damage that have not responded to other solutions. A cosmelan peel can also improve skin texture, minimizing enlarged pores and fine lines.

The cosmelan peel is a four-step procedure. The first step is a powerful depigmentation treatment performed in our office. The next steps are for you to take home. We will provide an after-treatment kit and instructions on how to remove the peel at home at the appropriate time. Then, you will apply creams multiples times a day as instructed for the next 30 days.

The effects of a cosmelan peel hinge on the commitment you make to your at-home care.

Cosmelan peels are effective at treating:

  • Melasma
  • Sun damage, including sunspots
  • Acne scarring
  • Age spots
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

What Can I Expect During a Chemical Peel?

For optimal results, our MedSpa experts customize all chemical peel treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals. However, here are some general steps to expect.

Before Your Chemical Peel

For safety and optimal results, we recommend preparing your skin for four to six weeks before your chemical peel. Having a consistent skin care routine can enhance your treatment’s effectiveness and protect your complexion.

For at least a week before your chemical peel, you may need to:

  • Avoid exfoliation, sun exposure, and waxing
  • Stop using anti-aging products or anti-acne medications
  • Stay hydrated

Chemical Peel Aftercare

For the first two to three days, your face may be slightly red, as if you have a sunburn. For the next three to five days, your skin will peel. Your skin may feel rough until the peeling process finishes. To speed healing, keep your skin moisturized with a neutral, unscented cream or lotion. Soon, you should start noticing a smoother, blemish-free complexion revealing itself.

Following your chemical peel, you should avoid sun exposure, exercise, and excessive sweating for at least one to two weeks. During this time, wear sunblock with an SPF of 30+ to avoid undoing the results of your peel with additional damage.

Most patients achieve optimal results from a series of at least three treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart. You may also require periodic maintenance sessions to sustain your results.
