Cosmelan Peel

Cosmelan mask is a novel chemical peel involving a two-step process consisting of an in-clinic peel and a home regime of topicals. This peel is aimed at treating unwanted pigmentation such as melasma, freckles, sun damage & age spots.

What conditions can Cosmelan Peel treat?

Cosmelan & the more powerful Dermamelan peel can address skin conditions such as melasma/chloasma, freckles, sun damage, post acne marks as well as age spots. This peel can be used on the face as well as the chest- decolletage.

How does the Cosmelan peel mask work?

The first step of the peel involves removal of excess pigmentation. The second step (at home use of pigment inhibiting products) prevents & reduces the formation of further pigment.

Skin irritation & peeling is proportional to the depth & intensity of the peel. Expect more downtime with Dermamelan compared to the weaker Cosmelan peel.

Davin’s Viewpoint on Dermamelan & Cosmelan peels

This form of chemical peeling is suitable for patients who require a quick improvement for their melasma, without extended downtime. The ideal patient is one who has a good grasp of sun protection, product use as well as a basic understating of melasma. To see if Cosmelan-Dermamelan is right for you, book a consultation with either myself or my senior nurses at Cutis Dermatology, Brisbane.

The majority of my melasma patients are prescribed Dermamelan as this is more powerful. Cosmelan is ideal for patients who are more risk averse, have less clinical pigmentation & limited downtime. As with all melasma treatments, candidate selection & education are paramount.
