Hi there! I have used Cosmelan 2 & I'm guessing left it on too long & now have patches of hyperpigmentation on my face (lower/mid face). Texture of skin feels like its been burned.with the use of aloe vera/castor oil my skin doesnt feel as dry. But I'm really worried about the discolored skin because its discolored where the mask was. Can this be corrected? Will my skin color ever go back to normal? What would you suggest?
Will My Skin Return? Cosmelan 2 Mask.

Cosmelan 2 mask caused pigmentation
Were you using the Vitamin K afterwards? This is important because this actually neutralizes the Cosmelan 2 mask. If you weren't then you most likely did burn your skin and have created post inflammatory hyperpigmentation because there wasn't any product applied to neutralize the Cosmelan 2. I would suggest you return to the office that supplied you with the product to see what they determine would be a good next step.
