Until 2014 I was shying away from the sun and until the age of 38 I was 100% spot free. Even when on holiday I always used 50+ spf all over my body. I am phototype 1 by nature . In 2014,and 2015 I tried sunbathing , and used no protection except my neck and face thus they are unaffected. The... READ MORE

I struggled with melasma for 10 years, wore sun protection every day (Heliocare SPF 50+) to prevent the pigmentation to form. I initially got the melasma after I had IPL on my face and this treatment triggered the over production of melanin and my pigmentation started forming on my cheeks, upper... READ MORE

I applied Cosmelan 2 morning, afternoon and evening first 3 months. After the first month I used product twice daily. Now I apply every evening. Product works great! Very effective I think it' important to continue using product daily to keep melasma under control. I also use the Mesoestetic... READ MORE

A few years ago I thought my upper lip was dirty so I went to scrub it off and realized this wasnt dirt. I couldnt figure what it was so went online and learned it could be from an IUD I had. I had it removed asap, Dr. insisted it wasn't from that. That didn't help, I tried creames, retin A,... READ MORE

I am Asian and whenever I come back to my home country from Middle East, my skin is always irritated. Somehow, I became allergic to the weather (this is just my personal diagnosis). Whenever I am back to ME, I will start to peel and after a few weeks becomes fine. When I travel to Europe, the... READ MORE

I have mild melasma covering 50% of my cheeks. I made it worse recently using self treatment. it increased about 50% within few days due to inflammation. But on the positive side, first time I fully educated myself about this disease and learnt about controlling and reducing it. I have... READ MORE

The mask application takes 5/10 minutes. I left the clinic and washed my face 12 hours later. Face became sensitive and felt itchy. I applied the cosmelan 2 cream then the hydra k factor. I had to apply the hydra k factor every hour or more frequent as my face was extremely itchy, bright red,... READ MORE

I've done it 2 times before and was ecstatic with the results. So after many laser failures, I'm doing it again. I just don't like the long almost monthly downtime. But the results are undeniable. With this purchase, I will receive 2 microdermabrasions. Typically cosmelan will cost around... READ MORE

I have had Melasma for years, alway worse in the summer, fading in the winter, but never gone. I use SPF 45 La Roche Posay Anthelios, which is very light under makeup (which I have to wear to cover my cheek area.) I have tried OTC lightening products, had successive glycolic peels at 20%, and... READ MORE

Pros: none Cons: expensive. some immediate results but several months later my melasma was back and actually darker. The process is terrible and took 13 days. It is uncomfortable and very itchy.

I did the peel myself after purchasing the cosmelan pack from ebay. The lady who I bought it from said it was the strong version, apparently there's two different packs. Left the peel on for about 9 hours, washed my face and by the next day my face was tomato red. It took at least 5 days for my... READ MORE

While researching Cosmelan, I appreciate the day by day status members posted because it helped me get over some of the anxiety of the procedures. I have melasma/freckles/brown spots all over my face but concentrated on the cheeks. I got treated with Cosmelan (w/ hydroquinone) at a MD's office... READ MORE
