Cosmelan 1 and Left With Tiny White Bumps?

Hi, I did Cosmelan 1 and upon washing of the mask, I realised that white tiny bumps (which looked like pimples with pus) had developed. Is this normal?

Hi there,

We have performed numerous Cosmelan professional treatments without your noted reaction.  Are you prone to acne breakouts?  Sometimes if you are acne prone, the Cosmelan mask may aggravate the skin.  In the future if you have this treatment again, this type of reaction can be avoided by taking antibiotics before the treatment.

I hope this helps!
