You are put on review so that you are constantly tracked and supported throughout the process. The whole process takes 6 – 12 months, so it is definitely for the committed!

Understanding the Cosmelan Peel

Developed by Mesoestetic, a renowned pharmaceutical company specializing in dermatology, the Cosmelan Peel is a professional depigmentation treatment designed to target and reduce skin discoloration. Unlike traditional peels, which primarily focus on exfoliation, it goes beyond surface-level concerns to address pigmentation issues at their root.

How Does the Treatment Work?

The Cosmelan Peel harnesses the power of potent ingredients, including azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, and arbutin, to inhibit the production of melanin in the skin. By suppressing melanin synthesis, the peel effectively fades existing dark spots while preventing the formation of new ones. This dual-action approach ensures comprehensive depigmentation results, leaving the skin visibly brighter and more even-toned. The peel is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, which makes it really unique.

The Treatment Process:

The peel is typically administered in two stages: the in-clinic application of the peel followed by a customized at-home skincare regimen. During the initial session, a skin expert will carefully apply the mud-like solution to the skin, ensuring even coverage. The patient will be informed to leave the mud-like solution on for a number of hours. Patients may experience a mild tingling sensation whist the solution is on the skin. The at home regime requires you to apply a small amount of peel on daily for a number of days. You are put on review during this process so that we have constant feedback on your skin and the developments.


The Cosmelan Peel is definitely for those who can commit to the long time frame of the process. However, the results of this treatment are truly remarkable, especially for those dealing with melasma and pigmentation which is renowned for being very difficult to treat.
