Professional cosmelan depigmentation peel treatments have an excellent reputation at being able to brighten the skin’s complexion and improve the balance of uneven areas of skin tone.

This advanced clinical treatment is for women and men who are frustrated and tired of masking and hiding uneven or dark patches of skin, including melasma and age spots (similar to sun or liver spots).

If you are just learning about how a cosmelan peel procedure works, then let us help you discover the many benefits of cosmelan peel and what you can expect from a cosmelan treatment. 

Cosmelan Peel Benefits

Este Medical has received glowing client reviews on Trustpilot about our cosmelan peel UK treatment. Rest assured, hyperpigmentation and melasma are treatable skin conditions, and Este has a 5-star reputation treating mild to extreme skin pigmentation

Take a look at our Este cosmelan peel before and after photos. You can see clearly how a cosmelan skincare treatment changes the skin tone and creates a more even and bright complexion. 

Our Este clinics offer the most effective pigmentation skin treatments in the world to help reduce and eliminate dark patches, and improve the appearance of blotchy, uneven skin discolouration. Here are the benefits of treating hyperpigmentation and melasma with an Este Medical cosmelan skin treatment. 

  • Achieve a brighter, more even complexion
  • Reduce or eliminate dark patches, age spots, blotchy skin
  • Stimulate collagen production for more resilient skin
  • Boost confidence and self-esteem
  • Improve overall body image and wellbeing
  • Look younger and more vibrant 

What is a Cosmelan Peel? 

Why would I have a cosmelan peel? This customised topical treatment is one of the best treatments for effective depigmentation and skin lightening.

It can target uneven skin tone on the face, especially around the eyes and on the cheeks, it will help to reduce the appearance of liver spots on the hands, and it can be used to lighten intimate parts like the bikini line and underarm area.  

What goes into a Cosmelan Peel? 

Cosmelan is the most popular depigmentation method to treat melasma, skin pigmentation, and spots with maximum efficacy and safety. 

What makes a professional cosmelan peel treatment stand apart from over-the-counter products is cosmelan’s unique ingredients which target cells that give your skin its pigment. The cosmelan formulation is also designed to help inhibit further melanin production. 

Two key active ingredients of a cosmelan peel are azelaic and kojic acid. The peel’s azelaic acid helps to heal melasma and rosacea, kill skin bacteria and manage acne, reduce inflammation, and promote new skin cell production. Kojic acid plays a big role in inhibiting melanin production, as well it is antimicrobial, anti-ageing, has exfoliating properties, and is effective at lightning visible sun damage, age spots, and scars. 

In a cosmetic clinic setting, the multi-ingredient cosmelan peel’s active skin brightening ingredients (e.g., azelaic acid, kojic acid, arbutin, vitamin C, phytic acid) all work together to even skin tone, lighten and brighten! 

What To Expect After A Cosmelan Peel

After a cosmelan peel day by day improvements to skin tone and colour will be visible. There is virtually no cosmelan peel downtime, however some people may display some mild skin redness which will fade quickly. Our Este treatments for pigmentation are skin-safe, non-invasive, and pain-free.

Based on clinical reports and client feedback, you will see up to a 95% reduction in superficial skin discoloration within 30 days. With proper cosmelan peel aftercare those positive results will continue, and you will see progressive improvement in the following months after a cosmetic clinic treatment (i.e., data for cosmelan facial peel). 

New Treatment Alert! Cosmelan Peel For Intimate Areas

Skin pigmentation and dark skin patches around the bikini line and armpits are often unwanted. It is not uncommon for these two areas to appear darker in skin tone due to hyperpigmentation. The good news is you can now treat pigmentation along the bikini line and at the armpits with a cosmelan intimate peel treatment

Is Cosmelan Peel Right For Me? 

If you are not sure pigmentation is your main skincare issue, we recommend you book an Este Visia Digital Skin Analysis to evaluate the true condition of your skin concern. A Visia skin imaging scan is an effective tool to measure skin sun damage, as well as the extent of a pigmentation treatment area. 

Depending on the extent of skin pigmentation (e.g., how large the pigment patch is), the number of treatments will vary from person to person. Treatment sessions are usually 2-6 weeks apart. The best results will be seen after a course of cosmelan treatments; you will see improvement in skin colour after each treatment.
