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 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.

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

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
