Effective and safe for all skin types, this powerfully brilliant breakthrough depigmentation treatment is a brilliant solution for stubborn melasma, age spots, sun damage, freckles, acne scars, and post-acne traces.

Treat Pigmentation with Cosmelan

The Cosmelan Hyperpigmentation Treatment is a leading treatment designed to remove superficial pigmentation for all individuals irrespective of skin type, skin colour or age.

Pigmentation is a common problem faced by many Australians wherein areas of the skin develop a darker appearance in colour than the surrounding skin due to an excess production of melanin. This may develop a patchy appearance or uneven skin tone and can be triggered or aggravated by sun exposure.

The Cosmelan Peel is the perfect solution for this issue and is often referred to as a ‘depigmentation’ treatment. It has shown to effectively improve the quality of skin of patients who suffer from even the most treatment resistant melasma, hyperpigmentation and other similar skin conditions.

The 2-phase treatment significantly reduces blemishes on the skin caused by melanin increase by targeting brown patches and skin discolourations. It suppresses potential pigmentation from reappearing with an ongoing anti-ageing skincare routine that nourishes and conditions your skin.

How Does a Cosmelan Treatment Work?

The Cosmelan Peel Sydney is a two-step procedure that aims to correct pigmentation issues in the skin such as melasma, hyperpigmentation, skin texture and other blemishes. The ingredients regulate the overproduction of melanin in the skin. Through an exfoliation of the skin, Cosmelan Peel removes dead layers of skin cells that have accumulated over time. To maintain this, the active ingredients work to prevent any new production of melanin (the natural pigment that gives the colour to your skin) which is the main cause of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

The first step of the treatment includes an initial consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic professionals followed by the application of the mask at Contour Clinics upon cleansing your skin. The mask requires to be left on your skin between 6 to 12 hours. Your professional will provide detailed instructions on how and when to remove the mask at home.

The second step is the home care routine. You will be provided with all the products and information necessary to effectively carry out your Cosmelan maintenance at home. It must be followed diligently for the next 6 months for the best results. Peeling typically starts after 2 to 3 days during which you will start to see initial results and significant brightening of the skin.

Cosmelan Peels for Treatment Resistant Pigmentation

The Cosmelan Treatment is renowned as the world’s leading treatment for ‘depigmentation’ for resistant skin conditions. It has been extremely effective in eradicating dark or brown spots on the skin that have been resistant to other forms of treatments. It is the best option for resistant hyperpigmentation, sun spots, melasma and other similar skin disorders.

Not only does the peel refresh and rejuvenate the skin, the peel is infused with kojic acid which prevents future production of pigmentation. The cosmelan peel induces the layers of the skin to physically peel off and remove dead skin cells. This results in fresh, healthy skin free of visible signs of pigmentation.

On top of the successful treatment of conditions like melasma and hyperpigmentation, the added benefits of the Cosmelan Peel include:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Effective exfoliation
  • Treatment of liver spots and freckles
  • Balances production of skin oils
  • Increased collagen production
  • Soothes fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture
  • Beneficial for acne patients
  • Suitable for skin types and ethnicities

Can You Remove Pigmentation & Melasma?

The Cosmelan Peel is a highly successful treatment for immediate and long-term ‘depigmentation’ of the skin, functioning as both a corrective and preventive solution. Typically, when administered and adhering to the home care routine correctly, a 95% reduction in the skin’s blemishes is seen within 30 days.

However, even with such great results, the Cosmelan Treatment tackles superficial cases of pigmentation and melasma. Conditions such as melasma, in deeper cases, are controlled by hormones which are out of our control and may or may not come back. Or in other instances, excessive sun exposure can trigger a reappearance of melasma. Our professionals at Contour Clinics approach your skin’s conditions and pigmentation with great care to ensure that you are being provided with the correct skin care to make you feel refreshed and confident in your own skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

One session of the Cosmelan Peel is generally enough to see dramatic results in the improvement of your skin with reduced unwanted pigmentation. If required, depending on how severe the underlying cause of your pigmentation is, further treatments can be recommended and administered on a 6-month basis in line with home maintenance. The peel can only be applied two times a year.

Do Cosmelan Peels Work?

Yes, the Cosmelan Peels have shown to be extremely effective in treating pigmentation, melasma, dark spots and even residual acne scarring. It is imperative that the at-home skincare routine is adhered to strictly to achieve the best results and maintenance of your skin to attain that bright, clear and fresh glow.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The in-clinic application of the Cosmelan Peel Sydney takes between 30-45 minutes. This is left on the skin for a required amount of time which is typically between 8-12 hours as instructed by your professional. The peel is then removed at home. It is important to make sure you plan accordingly to your appointment.

When Will I See the Best Results?

After the first week of your treatment, patients typically see blemishes in their skin begin to fade allowing for a brighter complexion and added glow to the skin.

One month after your Cosmelan Peel, you will begin to notice visible improvements to your hyperpigmentation, fading of most superficial dark sports, and overall improvement in skin tone.

Who Would Be a Good Candidate for Cosmelan Treatment?

The Cosmelan Peel is best suited for candidates who have hyperpigmentation and other skin tone concerns. It is suitable for all skin types, skin colours and ethnicities.

You should not get the Cosmelan Peel if you are pregnant, planning on getting pregnant or breastfeeding; have used Accutane in the last six months; have active rosacea; allergic to any component of Cosmelan; on antibiotics, or hydroquinone; have a skin infection; or recently received an IPL/laser treatment or a peel in the area of concern. In these cases, you may be required to postpone your appointment or be offered other treatment options.

Consulting with your professional about how the Cosmelan Peel can assist you will allow you access to the best treatment options and results.

Is There Any Downtime After the Peel?

The Cosmelan Peel requires up to 10-12 days of downtime. For the first 3-4 days, your skin will be red with a feeling of tightness and some irritability. After this, your skin will start to lightly flake and peel with a feeling of dryness. This can last up to 7-10 days. You will then start to see dramatic results. During this downtime, it is important to reduce sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily. Unless recommended or approved by your professional, avoid wearing makeup and other skin products that could irritate your skin during this time.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome.
