Cosmelan Overview

  • Cosmelan is a face-peeling mask commonly used in¬†melasma treatment and removing facial pigmentation.
  • Cosmelan peels are meant to inhibit tyrosinase, an enzyme in the melanin formation process.
  • The manufacturer's recommended protocol for Cosmelan involves two in-office masks, one for the full face and then another "touch up" to address areas that still have pigmentation approximately 1 month after the first mask. In addition, there is a Cosmelan 2¬†follow up product that is to be used at home.
