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

I am of Mediterranean descent - so olive skin - after several pregnancies and aging (I am 45) I developed pigmentation on my face that did not settle down. I was recommended cosmelan by a trusted dermatologists. I went for it. After coming home with the mask on I started to look it up and was... 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 had 3 sessions of IPL because a dermatologist told me that he could remove those brown spots by 2 sessions of IPL(cost $1,500) -- after 2 sessions of IPL, 50% of my face was covered in brown spots/patches......

I have the normal aging hyperpigentation brown patches on my face from sun exposure. Researching Cosmelan I found a Top Rated Seller on eBay Yucatan Beauty Supply who sold the entire Cosmelan Kit. I used mask for 8 hrs then applied the cosmelan 2 daily. My skin has much more of a glow to it. READ MORE

I had terrible melasma on 80% of my face. After trying azelaic acid, Obagi, liquorice and differin and Retin A (none worked) I bought cosmelan 1 and 2 off ebay.I bought the new formula NOT the MD version. My Cosmelan had no hydroquinone. I followed the instructions and applied C1 for 10 hours on... READ MORE

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 had it October 10, 2010 at 1pm and stayed in my face for about 10 hours. So far no reaction yet. Anyway, I will let you know tomorrow again. It was a waste of time and money!!! The pigmentation still on my face. They gave me another treatment aside from cosmelan and still the outcome... 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

I'm 40yrs old, asian female, and have suffered from melasma for the past decade. I've tried just about everything... laser treatments, microdermabrasion, peels, hydroquinone, TriLuma, etc... Not one of these gave me more than a little improvement. I figured I'd give Cosmel READ MORE

I had dark patches on both my cheeks and on the skin near the side of my eyes (my dermatologist called it melasma). They are not yet that dark but since Im kind of fair they are obvious. I have tried different treatments. I started with the conservative treatment using topical creams from... READ MORE

Went to a plastic surgeon in Boca Raton who claimed he developed this cream and he has it under private label with a name that I won't mention but it sounds very much like Cosmelan. I then called Mesoestetic USA headquarters in Encino, California (who actually manufactures and imports the... READ MORE

After seeing the results on a friend of mine who used Cosmelan through a doctor (and being amazed at her beautiful skin) I decided to try doing it myself. She had spent $600, and I found the products online for just $340. It's been less than a week, and I've had LOTS of peeling, redness,... READ MORE

I've tried everything I mean EVERYTHING on my skin to turn back the clock when I used to have smooth skin with no sun damages, acne scars, pigmentations, brown spots, and large pores. I've tried 3 green peels, Accutane, Minocine, Diane -35, IPL laser, fraxel laser, proactive, and all the... READ MORE
