This is my second day of reapplication of cosmelan mask. Why is it not peeling off?

Cosmelan and peeling
Cosmelan is a great product and I generally recommend two treatment 3 weeks apart as the company recommends for best results. Cosmelan re-application 4 months later should have had similar results. I would suggest you return to your treating physician for evaluation.
Cosmelan Re-application Treatment
In my office if there is left over pigmentation after a Cosmelan treatement I usually recommend the continued use of Cosmelan 2 at bedtime and an anti-oxidant vitamin C/brightening creams in the morning. At that point my patient can also do a light laser called Clear and Brilliant Permea to accelerate the improvement of the left over pigmentation. Best improvement is seen after a series of 6 sessions done once every 3 weeks with the use of vitamin C anti-oxidant and SPF 50 in the morning and a lightening cream at night, my patients are very happy with the improvement of their pigmentation on this regimen. Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see if these options will work for you.
