What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation on the skin is a global concern amongst all skin types. It can be triggered by many factors, including sun exposure, ageing , inflammatory processes, genetics, hormonal changes, and more. These concerns affect a variety of skin types. Previous options to treat certain kinds of pigmentation have been limited, unavailable to certain ethnicities or skin tones, or take several treatments to have an effect. But not with Cosmelan!

What is a Cosmelan Peel used for?

  • Reduction of all forms of pigmentation, including melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, freckles, age and sunspots. 
  • Helping to improve uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring.
  • It creates a smoother and more even tone overall
  • Brightening and rejuvenating skin
  • The active ingredients giving skin a fresh, revitalised glow

Who should not have a Cosmelan peel?

You should not have Cosmelan if you are pregnant or planning on getting pregnant, breastfeeding, allergic to any component of Cosmelan, on antibiotics, isotretinoin or hydroquinone; have a skin infection; or have recently had a peel or IPL/laser treatment in the area.

What is involved?

Cosmelan is a depigmenting treatment that has an intensive corrective action on skin hyperpigmentation. A Cosmelan peel simultaneously regulates the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, while inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots. It has a dual corrective and controlling action, achieving short- and long-term results by keeping hyperpigmentation under control. This world leading hyperpigmentation treatment is suitable for all skin types and consists of a salon stage and a seven-month home care routine.

What does the 3-month hyperpigmentation treatment involve?

Before treatment:

For best results, use skincare with Vitamin A and C a month prior to treatment. We may also advise a peel a week prior, depending on your skin sensitivity.


The Cosmelan mask will be applied in-clinic and you will wash it off later at home, after approximately eight hours.


You may wish to take antihistamine to reduce itching. Once your skin has settled, you will start using the pH- balanced skin care products provided, instead of your usual skincare regime. Using this homecare daily is essential to long term pigment reduction. After 3 months, we advise switching to a skincare regime with Vitamin A, C and a pigment inhibitor for the next four months.


The cost of Cosmelan $1800.

What are the possible side effects?

In the first 12 to 48 hours after your hyperpigmentation treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness of the treated area. Very rarely does this last longer than 48 hours.
