A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to the face or body to remove surface layers of skin. Chemical peels can transform your skin, providing younger, healthier-looking skin in just a few days.  This non-invasive modality typically involves 2-7 days of visible peeling.

If you’ve had a chemical peel before, you may have had to select between a superficial peel, a medium-depth peel, and a deep peel. Each peel varies in solutions and ingredients, but peels are typically categorized into 3 main types.

SUPERFICIAL PEELS

Superficial peels don’t require much downtime as they only exfoliate the top layer of skin. Many superficial peels are safe enough to self-administer at home. Because it is such a mild treatment, this peel must be repeated several times in order to begin to see results.

MEDIUM-DEPTH PEELS

Medium-depth peels are popular today because results can be achieved rather quickly. The treatment is applied by a medical professional. The peeling process typically lasts a few days. If you’re seeking visible results with 1-3 treatments over time, a medium-depth peel could be your best bet. Medium-depth peels tend to tackle common skin issues such as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and freckles, and controlling acne while improving the appearance of acne scars.

DEEP PEELS

Deep peels can remove damaged skin cells from deeper levels of skin and can dramatically reduce the appearance of skin flaws such as wrinkles and acne scarring. However, deep peels typically can only be performed once and tend to be much stronger and more painful. The patient must be prepared for weeks of downtime and often must prep the skin for weeks or months prior to treatment. Deeper peels are normally only used on the face and not on body areas.

Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Regardless of skin color, they are a significant issue because of their unattractive appearance and negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting the quality of life.

Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, and is a consequence of uncontrolled, localized overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, causing irregular skin coloration and dark spots.

“The world’s best-selling depigmenting treatment. More than a million satisfied patients.”

Cosmelan® is a professional depigmentation method that has an intensive corrective effect on skin hyperpigmentations whilst regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots.

Its efficacy is based on its double mechanism of action that on the one part has a corrective effect, eliminating the hyperpigmentation and, on the other, a regulating effect, controlling the overproduction of melanin and in this way preventing the appearance of new spots in the long term.

More than a treatment, Cosmelan® is a complete method that involves a single session, which can be performed at beauty clinics and dermatological or aesthetic medicine practices and a home maintenance treatment.

The session entails the professional applying the cosmelan 1 face mask which is then left to work for 8 to 12 hours, according to the phototype and sensitivity of the skin to be treated. After this time has elapsed the mask is removed at home.

48 hours later, the follow-up phase in your home is started with the application of the cosmelan 2, hydra-vital factor K cream and the moisturizing sun protection SPF50+ .

This follow-up phase is carried out for 7 months to achieve an optimal result and prevent the reappearance of spots.

  • Scars, ingrown hairs;
  • Oily skin with enlarged pores;
  • Thickening of the stratum corneum, uneven relief;
