The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel
Numerous chemical peels claiming to fight aging for all skin tones and types are available currently however it can be difficult to find one specifically tailored to you. At the Lavish Cosmetic Center in Culver City, we use a Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel to help conquer hyperpigmentation, melasma, and scarred and blotchy skin.
Using the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel, clinicians are able to reduce hyperpigmentation as well as skin discoloration. This is done through the targeting of melanin and through the inhibition of the enzyme Tyrosinase which reduces the natural creation of melanin in your skin and leads to a more even skin tone and complexion.
A daily common disorder in skin pigmentation, melasma causes discoloration and can be brought on from a shift in one’s hormones. It is often most apparent on an individual’s face either on their cheeks, chin, nose/nose bridge, but can appear in other areas. The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is also effective at treating Chloasma, a form similar to Melasma and often caused by birth control or becoming pregnant.
This treatment is particularly effective at treating uneven skin tones in faces as well as decreasing scars from acne, skin dullness, blemishes, dry skin, and dark spots that can appear on breasts/ nipples, legs, or the abdomen.
Acne is also treatable with the Cosmelan Depigmentation peel through the reduction of oil production in the skin.

An Ideal Candidate
We are pleased to go over any questions you may have as well as the benefits and risks associated with the treatment during a consultation appointment. The procedure works with all types of skin and tones. It is both safe and effective.
The perfect patient will:
- Be in good health
- Consider and know the process of the treatment as well as follow-up care requirements
- Reasonably understand the outlook of their results
You will first need a private consultation with one of our licensed clinicians to assess your skin’s unique features (tone, texture, structure). It is not unusual for our clinicians to require your medical history before selecting the treatment option that is most preferred. We will then create a customized treatment plan with you that will address your goals.
What is the procedure?
There are two parts to the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel. In our Aesthetic Center, there will first be a stimulating mask used for around an hour. Next, the patient will continue the process at their home as instructed with their specific chemical peel.
Stage 1: At True Jewel Cosmetic Center
- Clinicians will clean and prepare your skin for treatment before applying a deep layer of the Cosmelan Mask.
- There may be slight but very temporary discomfort in the form of a sting
- Depending on the goals of the patient, the mask will remain on the skin for six to twelve hours.
- You will remove the mask at your home when the appropriate time has been reached as dictated by your clinician.
- True Jewel Cosmetic Center will give you everything you need with our special aftercare kit.
Stage 2: At Home
- Using a pH-balanced cleanser at the right time, you will gently remove your mask.
- Disperse the Mesoestetic Hydra-Vital Factor K onto the afflicted area which provides both comfort and moisture.
- Peeling will become visual in two to three days
- For the next two weeks, use the Cosmelan II cream two to three times daily.
- After 14 days, use Cosmelan II only once a day
Results of Cosmelan
Complexion will reflect adjustment and brightening as well as blemish reduction during the first week. After two weeks you may notice your skin looking both healthy and glowing. Every week after you will notice results with huge improvements being made after five weeks. Results can last several months when applying Cosmelan II daily as well.
Please be aware that your skin will be sensitive during the first two weeks. Please wear full-spectrum sunscreen outside and avoid remaining in the sun for long periods of time.

The first treatment is done in our office and is finished within half an hour. Aftercare cream is applied as directed every day for the first few weeks.
