Acne & Pigmentation: Other Available Este Treatments

To help you achieve your skincare and beauty goals, Este Medical Group offers several effective, skin-safe treatments to enhance your skin colour.  

Acne and acne scarring can cause skin discolouration, also known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). This type of pigmentation can show up in areas where your skin has had acne (e.g., face, neck, back, shoulders). It can cause dark pigment spots to appear where you have had pimples and/or skin inflammation or irritation (e.g., psoriasis, eczema…). Additionally, darker skin tends to experience PIH at higher rates; PIH can affect all skin tones, but it is more prevalent for people with darker skin.  

If you have acne related hyperpigmentation an Este treatment may be the right choice for you to improve the appearance of your skin tone. You can contact Este through our website for a skin pigmentation Manchester consultation, which will help you determine the treatment best suited to your skin.

Why choose Cosmelan?

A cosmelan treatment for hyperpigmentation or melasma is safe and effective on the face and body (e.g., hands, neck, chest, stomach). You will experience fast and long-term results with a cosmelan peel, on average it takes just four treatment sessions to see positive results. The cosmelan peel’s ingredients, azelaic acid and kojic acid, work together at the cellular level to promote new skin cell production, inhibit melanin production, and balance overall skin tone. Este’s cosmelan peel uses non-bleaching ingredients that are skin-safe. For the best results, make our Este cosmelan peel part of your dedicated skincare routine to combat pigmentation. Schedule a consultation at our hyperpigmentation clinic Manchester to learn more about the Este cosmelan peel and see if it's the right choice for you.

Our Approach & Process: How it Works

At Este Medical, we understand that treating skin pigmentation and melasma can be difficult. We believe the best way to achieve optimal results is by prepping the skin before applying the Cosmelan Peel.

This peel is specifically designed to target and reduce pigmentation, but it’s also important to ensure that your skin is in its best condition for maximum effectiveness.

1Prep & Treatment


The Cosmelan Peel is a powerful treatment that works in two stages; however, your skin must be cleansed and prepped before this. First, the peel is applied to your skin and left for several hours until completely dry. There is no discomfort, but ensuring you have no social plans during this period is advised. After this, the peel will be removed with water, and you can expect your skin to be a little irritated and red due to the active ingredients which have penetrated your skin during this time.

2The Healing Process


One day after the treatment, your skin will be red and plump. This is a sign that the Cosmelan Peel has stimulated the process of skin shedding and wound healing. During this time, the body sends blood to the area, flooding it with collagen, and red and white blood cells, which helps reduce pigmentation and improves overall skin tone.Seven days after the treatment, recovery is complete, and results can already be seen. Pigmentation will have faded, and your skin’s overall texture will be improved due to increased collagen production and skin hydration. You must use Cosmelan 2 serum to prevent the formulation of new hyperpigmentation.

3Monthly Aftercare


Two months after the treatment, you can expect long-term changes in your skin's pigmentation, texture, tone and luminosity. It’s important to maintain a strict skincare routine to achieve optimal results, including using an SPF50 sunscreen and Cosmelan 2 serum daily.The Cosmelan treatment is an effective solution for treating pigmentation, but it’s important to understand that results vary depending on how severe the pigmentation was before treatment. In some cases, a maintenance program of 6-monthly treatments may be required. During the months after your treatment, your dedicated Este Medical Group consultant or therapist will be available to contact if you have any concerns and will be regularly checking in with your progress.

If you’d like to learn more about our professional Cosmelan Peel, please get in touch with Este Medical Group, and we’ll be happy to provide further information and advice. We understand that no two cases are the same, so we will work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan for your needs.

Cosmelan Peel

A cosmelan peel will reduce liver spots or sunspots, and in many cases eliminate dark, discoloured areas of skin. A series of depigmentation peels is one of the best courses of action for long-lasting results.

Cosmelan has a solid reputation of being one of the most successful ways to effectively treat skin pigmentation; the peel’s active ingredients help skin cells to slow down the overproduction of melanin. If you want to achieve a brighter, more even skin tone, then this pigmentation treatment is highy recommended.

Laser resurfacing treatment

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Using the technology of thermal energy, a laser resurfacing treatment can help to diminish areas of discolouration due to hyperpigmentation. Laser treatment for depigmentation can target age spots as well as small to big patches of hyperpigmented skin.

Through laser treatment, the skin’s surface is stimulated to renew, which improves skin tone and texture. Laser skin resurfacing can also help to reduce pore size, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of acne scars. If you suffer from resistant patches of pigmentation that have been unchanged by other treatment options, then you should strongly consider laser skin resurfacing.

Hyperpigmentation Treatment Manchester

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when specialised skin cells produce too much melanin. It’s a common skin condition that turns some areas of skin darker than others. Hyperpigmentation and melasma (a specific type of hyperpigmentation) can appear on the face and body as patches of blotchy or uneven skin discolouration or dark brown freckle-like spots (i.e., sunspots, liver spots). Skin affected by hyperpigmentation is typically darker than your overall natural skin tone. This skin condition can be triggered by too much sun or UV light, acne, ageing, hormonal changes, inflammation and illness. The good news is our pigmentation treatment Manchester specialists can help you.

Your Pigmentation & Melasma Guide

You can take proactive steps at home to prevent or reduce the worsening of skin pigmentation.

  • Always use sunscreen! Wear a powder, lotion or cream with SPF 30+ or higher to protect against UVA and UVB damage on a daily basis
  • Avoid excessive skin exfoliation, as it may cause irritation and trigger inflammation leading to further pigmentation  
  • Gently remove all makeup before bed to prevent acne breakouts and skin inflammation  
  • Incorporate products with ingredients like Vitamin C, niacinamide (a form of vitamin B₃), and liquorice extract into your skincare routine, as they may help brighten and improve the appearance of pigmentation
