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 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

I have a sever to mild acne scarring since my teens which have left pits and redness. I have been treating this with microneedling - sadly I haven't been as regular with my sessions as I should have been but anyway, I did my 6 sittings and with great results! But the pits were still visible,... READ MORE

Hi everyone. Just thought id share my experience of using the cosmelan treatment. I am 23 years old with caramel complexion (parents from bangladesh) and I decided to use this treatment for my acne scars. I had these scars for years and tried hundreds of products to try and fade them with no... READ MORE

I did it in Santa Monica after researching - this is a good price-was looking at $850 elsewhere. I did the peel 5 days ago. Bright red the next day and dry flaky ever since, but not the crusty peeling you get from laser or a TCA peel. I am very confident in the girl that did it & I know that... READ MORE

It's been 1 week since I've had the new "old" cosmelan, which is the Cosmelan MD. Very pleased with results so far. I am hispanic with a tan complexion and tried internal treatment first (gse), and no results. I am so happy with my results so far. Worth every penny. READ MORE

I had Cosmelan 6 months ago for premature pigmentation due to lots of sun exposure and taking birth control for years. I tried IPL and microderm and nothing seemed to work so my dermatologist recommended Cosmelan. When I had it done i told the doctor I have work the following day (Saturday)... READ MORE

I'm 40 and had melasma and discoloration on my face due to contraceptives + sun exposure, followed by four pregnancies (though it was not extreme, friends say they hadn't noticed any pigment spots, but I saw everything). The C1 mask was applied for 6 hours and I have been using the C2... READ MORE

I am 41 years old and have had mild melasma for about 10 years, which worsened after my daughter was born four years ago. I researched and came across the Cosmelan treatment option. I found it on Ebay from a reputable supplier and administered it at home. Since I am fair skinned, I left the... READ MORE

I followed all the steps. the do's and don'ts exactly and after 2 masks and 2 months of C2 later, there is very little to no change. I am apparently in the 5% that it doesn't work on. I'm so very disappointed a feel hopeless as I've tried so many other products. Not to... READ MORE

I had the mask about a month ago at a clinic and have been following instruction with C2 and Factor K delligently since then. I see very little result if any at all on lightening my brown patches. I am quite disappointed but I was told I will get another 2 to 3 mask treatments out of the... READ MORE
