What To Expect From A Cosmelan Skin Peel Treatment

What To Expect From A Cosmelan Skin Peel Treatment?

Cosmelan Skin Peel is considered the world’s number one skin peel treatment, and luckily for you, we’ve brought it to Liverpool so that people across the North West can benefit from the world’s most innovative skin peel procedure. However, with fame comes doubt, and you may not understand exactly why the world loves Cosmelan; this blog aims to guide you through the ins and outs of this aesthetic treatment.

We are revealing the medical secrets behind the mask – quite literally. If you’ve read our previous blog on skin peels, then you may already be familiar with Cosmelan. But, this blog is sure to catch you up in no time and have you rushing down to our clinic for your session. 

What is the Cosmelan Skin Peel?

The Cosmelan Skin Peel uses a unique combination of chemicals that work simultaneously to reduce the appearance of pigmentation and blemishes. If you suffer from hyperpigmentation, melasma or scarred skin, then a Cosmelan Skin Peel could be the answer you are looking for. 

This skin peel is formulated with azelaic acid, kojic acid, arbutin, phytic acid, and ascorbic acid. All of which are effective at inhibiting the production of melanin; melanin is the protein that causes discolouration. The chemicals are able to inhibit the production of melanin so that it cannot cause blotching or uneven skin tones. This miracle peel can lift dull skin and combat acne scars, hyperpigmentation and dull skin! It has the additional benefit of balancing your skin’s natural oil production to create a balanced healthy, and glowing complexion. The balancing of the skin’s oil means that there will also be a reduction in acne breakouts too. 

The Depigmentation Peel

The Cosmelan Skin Peel is also widely known as the depigmentation peel due to its ability to reduce melanin within the skin. Pigmentation is directly related to a number of pigments in our skin: melanin, carotene and haemoglobin. Carotene is a yellow-orange carotenoid that improves our skin’s ability to absorb oxygen; however, too much can give the skin a yellow hue. Haemoglobin also helps to provide oxygen through the bloodstream, yet this pigment offers a redder tone when oxygenated. Skin that is particularly light and pale is due to a lack of oxygen-rich haemoglobin; in some rare instances, this can cause the genetic condition albinism

The most prominent factor when it comes to skin pigmentation, however, is melanin. Melanin is the term given to a range of naturally occurring pigments responsible for the colour of our hair, skin and eyes. These pigments are a form of the amino acid tyrosine and are created through melanogenesis, a multi-step process that takes place in melanocyte cells. These cells are located in various different tissues around the body and, consequently, are susceptible to intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Put simply; the cells are influenced by our DNA as well as other factors that are unique to each individual. Therefore, the process of melanogenesis that takes place in each of the melanocyte cells produces a unique set of pigments. 

When melanin is over or under-produced, pigmentation can occur. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that appears when too much melanin is produced, whereas hypopigmentation is due to a lack of melanin. An overproduction of melanin can occur due to hormonal changes in pregnancy, Addison’s disease, or exposure to sunlight. 

The sun’s UV rays encourage the melanocyte cells to produce more melanin, consequently darkening an individual’s complexion. The UV rays stimulate keratinocytes deep in the dermis, and without overcomplicating the process, these cells encourage the melanocyte cells to go into overdrive. As a result, an influx of melanin is produced, increasing the risk of hyperpigmentation. However, hyperpigmentation can occur in all skin types on the Fitzpatrick scale.

Our Depigmentation Peel can reverse the overproduction of melanin using safe and natural acids to discourage the production of the enzyme Tyrosinase. Find out more about its multi-ingredient chemical treatment here.

What can you expect from the procedure?

If you decide to undergo your journey with Cosmelan, you will be invited to our clinic for an initial consultation. This is a great time to run a full diagnostics on your skin type and finalise if this treatment is right for you. It is also a perfect opportunity to iron out any questions or worries you may have over the procedure. Once you have decided that this is the right journey for you, we can begin the two-step process.

The first step is less than an hour long and involves our practitioner applying the mask to your face in the clinic. Next, we will cleanse and prep your skin with our state of the art products before applying a thick layer of the peel. You should expect to feel a brilliant tingling sensation as you feel the peel getting to work. You will be asked to keep the peel on for around 6-12 hours (depending on what your practitioner recommends during the consultation). 

You’ll then be happy to know that the rest of the process can be carried out all from the comfort of your own home! You will be given all the information and products you need to continue with the rest of the procedure. This involves a strict skincare regime which is carried out with our cleansers that we will provide you with. Using this cleanser, you will remove the mask gently and use the aftercare products to ensure the skin remains moisturised and nourished to create glowing, revitalised skin. You should apply the product twice daily for the first couple of weeks, and you should expect to see peeling within the first couple of days. Once this skin has peeled, it will reveal glorious youthful skin beneath. 

Who can have a Cosmelan Skin Peel?

The Cosmelan Skin Peel is unique for all skin types and tones. However, to be safe, we do not recommend this procedure for pregnant women, breastfeeding, suffering from rosacea, or having undergone Accutane in the past six months. If you are unsure whether you are able to undergo this aesthetic treatment, our qualified doctors can assess your skin during an initial consultation. Here, with their expertise, they are able to recommend another skin peel or treatment option to help you achieve your desired result. 

The Results

Within a short week of your peel, you will immediately notice brighter, clearer skin as your blemishes start to fade, and your oil production will balance out, creating a smoother complexion. You should expect to see results for the following few weeks as the skin continues to even out and glow brighter than should shine for around six weeks. That’s right, for six weeks after the peel, you will have noticeably brighter, smoother skin that is sure to get everyone talking. 

To maintain these staggeringly fabulous results, you should continue to use the Cosmelan Skin Peel every six weeks to ensure long-lasting results. However, please note, these recommendations will vary from client to client, as our specialist doctors will tailor each treatment plan to each individual.
