I've had melasma on my upper lip for the past 3 years after being on the birth control pill and waxing the area. After lots of online research I decided to use Cosmelan and one week later my melasma has disappeared by about 80-90%! Im completely amazed! During my treatment I kept a diary of what... READ MORE

I'm already on my 5th week since the start of the treatment and I don't see any slight improvement. I got the Cosmelan 1 mask done in the clinic, went home & kept the mask on for 10 hours, washed with water, put on the Post-Peel Crystal Fibre Mask and after 20 minutes washed it off and applied...

I went to Total Dermatology in Irvine to do Cosmelan peel. I left it on for about 10 hours the doc said 8 but I lost track of time! Face sun burned red, feels dry, tight and hot! I applied Hydra K and going to bed. I will follow the Cosmelan 2 on Day 2 Dr. Pilest said to apply two to three... READ MORE

Hello all, I'm writing this review because I couldn't find anyone speaking in depth to just using the Cosmelan 2 Maintenance Cream without the the initial Cosmelan 1 mask. I am not a woman of means (not yet) and I don't like downtime and read reviews on Amazon of people having great results... READ MORE

I've been dealing with hyperpigmentation for a year and a half, which I believe was a result of three months use of Vivance for exams and accompanying acne/irritation. I was devastated and sometimes avoided daytime activities with friends. I tried Apeele chemical peel four times, but with... READ MORE

I am licensed cosmetologist who has given myself chemical peels regularly. I use glycolic acid peels 30% and recently just increased to 50%. I also do salicyclic acid 30% so my skin isn't as sensitive. I am Asian who can tan very well, but out of the sun I am very light. After years of living in... READ MORE

Just got Cosmelan done for the first time this past Friday. I am half Asian and have hyperpigmentation from taking the pill for many years. Areas of concern are temples and upper lip that seem to darken when exposed to sun. After inquiring about IPL facials, and microdermabrasion, this seemed to... READ MORE

I had cosmelan done a week ago in the clinic and had to leave it on for 8 hrs. Next day my face was swollen and red which the Dr said was normal. My skin started peeling on day 2 with very bad redness. I'm still red with slight peeling but alot of itching and tightness! I went back to my Dr on... READ MORE

I just turned 40. Single. Childless. I have recently developed melasma on my right cheek. I suspect that it could be due to the oral contraceptive pills that I started a year ago. After some research, I have decided to go for Cosmelan. Even though it is costly, but the reviews from... READ MORE

I developed Melasma when Dr prescribed Lupron contraceptive pill and two months later went to Hawaii without Sunblock at all! Spots started showing like freckles first and then like big brown patches... I tried sooo many things-- you name it (Triluma--$300, Aclaro, etc) but nothing has... READ MORE

Today is my 3rd day after the mask(cosmelan 1), I got it done in an MD's office in NYC. It was a bit expensive, but there were not that many MDs offer it in NYC. I have to say so far the worse peeling is gone, my face is still red like sun burn, but not as bad as TCA peel. I now can say my... READ MORE

I had a few brown spots on my cheeks an the skin near my right eyes area 4 years ago.

I bought cosmelan from ebay. They claimed it was the old formula and I guess it really was because I peeled A LOT! I heard that with the new cosmelan, you don't really peel. I got cosmelan because I have brown spots on my cheeks that I got from using Proactiv and not wearing sunscreen.... READ MORE

I had cosmelan done at my dermatologist's recommendation for some minor pigmentation about 8 years ago. Her nurse whispered to me before I left to leave it on longer for a better result. Well, I did, and I turned red and peeled like crazy for about a week (which I think is normal). This... READ MORE

I went to a day spa for microdermabrasion and she recommended I get a cosmelan treatment. She applied the treatment and told me to leave it on for 9hrs. Day 1 my skin was lobster red and swollen. Then day 2 was even redder, cracked and blistered. I thought is was running its natural course... READ MORE
