Melasma and hyper pigmentation with Melapeels
Cosmelan formulations have changed over the years. In our office, we use a combination of Melarase AM and Melarase PM followed by Melapeels to address melasma and hyper pigmentation.
Cosmelan Treatment and Formulation
Due to regulations on hydroquinones the formulation of Cosmelan has changed. The physician must now have Cosmelan add the Retinoids and hydroquinones into the product and then it is exactly the same as the previous Cosmelan product. Please consult an expert to have Cosmelan treatment. Best, Dr. Green
