I Started Cosmelan Two Days Ago - Hollywood, FL

I developed Melasma when Dr prescribed Lupron...

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 worked for me.
I decided to try Cosmelan MD with Hydriquinone 8% ingredient. The real thing. I'm sooo excited to try this new treatment so we will see...

Day 1-- face very red and kind of orange in a way.
Day 2---Peeling started, especially around the lips--- Not the cheeks though---is it normal?
My spots are around my cheeks
Im applying Cosmelan 2--3 times a day as prescribed.
I'm going to keep u updated.
Wish me good luck!

This is my update after several months. This product Cosmelan MD does not work. My brown patches still on my face. I went though a lot of peeling and changes on my face after using this product but no results. Don't waste your money. Now I gave up, I am using sunblock every day and that's it. It is helping me to prevent more sun damage

Can you give an update on your commelan treatment please....

Be careful with this product. It contains hydroquinone in high percentage, a very dangerous and prohibited substance that can provoke irreversible side effects. Treatment with cosmelan leads to a very aggressive skin desquamation and reddening that makes the skin very sensitive and vulnerable to external factors. Hydroquinone may cause many undesirable side effects such as permanent post inflammatory hyperpigmentations, ochronosis, lack of skin elasticity and in many cases cancer. The cosmelan manufacturer has a lot of legal complaints and the product has been prohibited in many countries. Please, don’t risk your health, there are other solutions in the market less dangerous and more effective.

I agree its dangerous but it seems like hydroquinone is the only thing that helps, well succesfully. ;(

Hi. Did you purchase the Cosm.MD online? If so, where? How's your progress? Thanks.

Day 7-- brown patches are still showing up. This time even darker. So I am hopeful this is part of the process. Maybe it will lighten in a few weeks??? I will continue with Cosmelan 2 though

Are the brown spots peeling skin, or what do they look like?

My skin is peeling, peeling, peeling. I stopped using Cosmelan 2 because my face was in so much pain to reapply three times a day. So I decided to stop for a couple of days to rest. I see an improvement of 40%. My husband says my spots are gone. I'm going to continue using Cosmelan 2 today once a day. So my face doesn't get too dry.

Hi.. I had cosmelan done a week ago and 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 day 5 and she said its all normal. My question is who long does it take for the redness and burnt like skin to subside? im so worried
