What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is essentially the result of the overproduction of melanin pigment. Women and men of colour have more melanin present in their skin, which can manifest into darker patches and create an uneven tone, but pigmentation issues can affect every skin type. People with all skin types across the Fitzpatrick scale can suffer with pigmentation issues and the cosmelan peel is safe for every skin type.
When the skin suffers irritation, trauma or damage the body can often produce excess melanin during healing (which is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). As a result of a reaction to acne or trauma the skin may overcompensate during the healing process and produce excess melanin; this can then result in darker spots, patchy skin and an uneven skin tone which can be really disheartening for those who suffer with it, but unfortunately it is a very common skin complaint that many people have to contend with.
Dija Ayodele from the Black Skin Directory reports that “Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation affects over 60% of people of colour”. Although it is such a common skin condition, it is still widely misunderstood and therefore it can be confusing for women with darker skin tones to know where to start to correct this complaint.
Pigmentation can get worse during pregnancy when more hormones are produced, or when skin is exposed to sunlight and UV rays – this can lead to conditions known as melasma or chloasma – different types of conditions that also result in darker patches on the skin.
How can Cosmelan Peel treat hyperpigmentation?
As pigmentation issues are related to the production of melanin in the skin, the Cosmelan Peel works to decrease the skin’s natural melanin production. It works by preventing certain enzymes such as Tyrosinase which is needed for the production of melanin. This works to result in a blotch free, even complexion.
The Cosmelan Peel doesn’t just work on the face. It can be used to improve the look of skin on your abdomen, legs, hands, and even the breast and nipple area. Discoloration caused by hyperpigmentation, melasma and chloasma (melasma is brown/grey patches on the skin and chloasma is similar but is often sparked by hormonal changes in pregnancy) can be eliminated with the Cosmelan Peel.
This incredible peel will lift dull skin and combat dry areas, dark spots, blemishes, and acne scars. All of these unwanted skin complaints can be safely and significantly improved with this peel. It will balance your skin’s natural oil production to create a healthy, bright and glowing complexion and will also help to prevent outbreaks of acne.
Cosmelan Peel FAQ’s
What happens during a Cosmelan Peel?
You will be invited by Aesthetics of Liverpool to an initial consultation about your skin. We will be happy to talk you through your individual condition and suggest different treatment options for you. If you are happy that the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is for you, then we can start our two-step process.
The first part of the peel process involves us applying the mask in our clinic. Our practitioner will make you very comfortable throughout the procedure and there is minimal discomfort whilst having the peel applied – the whole procedure takes under an hour. Your skin will be cleaned and prepped before the peel is applied in a thick layer. There may be a slight stinging sensation but this is completely normal. You will then leave the mask on between 6-12 hours (our practitioners will advise you individually on your specific skin type).
The second stage is at home. You will be given all the products you need to complete the after-care and second stage of the peel and we will talk you through exactly what you will need to do, step-by-step. Once the specified time is up, you will remove the Cosmelan mask with a gentle and neutral cleanser, provided by us. You will be given all the products to then apply to keep your skin moisturised and glowing. For example, the Cosmelan II product will be applied 2x daily for the first 2 weeks. The peeling will usually begin 2-3 days later. Once all the skin has peeled you will see your beautiful results.
What are the results of Cosmelan?
Within a week after your peel, you will notice a brighter, smoother complexion of your skin. Blemishes will begin to fade and your skin tone will even up. After a few weeks your skin will have a much healthier, brighter glow and this will continue to improve for up to 6 weeks. For best results, you should have a peel every 6 weeks to keep skin looking smooth and bright.
What are the possible side effects of a Cosmelan Peel?
- Mild redness and discomfort
- Tight or itching skin
- Scarring (this is a very rare complication and can be avoided using a highly trained practitioner such as in our clinic).
What areas can be treated with the Cosmelan Peel?
- Entire face
- Legs and arms
- Hands and feet
- Breast and nipple area
Who can have a Cosmelan Peel?
The Cosmelan peel is safe for all skin types. However, you should not have a peel if you are pregnant, nursing, have active rosacea or if you have used accutane in the last 6 months.
