The Cosmelan Peel, also known as the world’s leading medical-grade depigmentation and melasma treatment is now available the Capizzi Med Spa. This amazing treatment is designed to eliminate or reduce dark spots on your skin while smoothing tone and brightening a dull, tired appearance. This peel provides visible results for skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation and is safe for all skin types. Patients will see up to a 95% reduction in pigmentation within 30 days of the treatment.
What is the Cosmelan Peel?
The Cosmelan is a peel procedure that reduces dark spots and pigmentation by reducing melanin overproduction.
What does a treatment include?
You will come into the office to have the treatment applied by one of our Licensed Medical Aestheticians. The Cosmelan Peel used at Capizzi MD is available exclusively to medical spas supervised by a medical doctor.
You will leave the treatment on your skin for 8-12 hours at the guidance of your aesthetician. They will guide you through the at-home care stage of the treatment. You will be given a bag with products to continue the process in the comfort of your home with a regimen that can be easily completed alongside your existing skincare routine.
After the initial treatment time you will rinse the treatment off your skin using water, with the option to use the included moisturizer if needed. There are three main steps to this treatment: removal of existing pigmentation, continuing depigmentation, and controlling reappearance. You will be guided through each stage of the process by your aesthetician.
Who is a good candidate for the treatment?
This treatment is appropriate for all skin types and tones, making it a truly unique solution to melasma and hyperpigmentation! This treatment can be done any time of year as well, so you can reduce pigment in the summer or winter.
What is the downtime?
Initially you may notice some redness and tightness that will fade within 1-2 days followed by light peeling at the treated areas. Over the following 2-4 weeks you will notice dark spots fade and your skin will appear cleaner, brighter, and healthier.
How long until I can wear makeup?
Avoid cosmetics for 7-10 days after your cosmelan peel in order to allow your skin to heal naturally and avoid any irritation.
How often do I need to have maintenance treatments?
Generally, patients need only one treatment in the office but can opt for multiple sessions spaced three months to one year apart if desired.
