Ask a doctor

My doctor only used the cosmelan 2 and send me home with the rest of the jar?

Hi I just went to the doctor for a cosmelan treatment. I thought there was a step one?? Is this normal? Thanks

Cosmelan application

That doesn't make sense. There definitely is a Step 1, and that's what's applied in the office. It's sort of a yellow-brown colored mask that you keep on for several hours. This is the key step and has the most active ingredients! Then you begin applying Step 2 and Vitamin K in a regimented plan. Call your office and clarify because you can't skip the Step 1.
