Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Regardless of skin colour, they are a significant issue because of their unattractive appearance and negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting quality of life. Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, and is a consequence of uncontrolled, localized overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, causing irregular skin coloration and dark spots.


Pigmentation is without doubt one of the most difficult skin concerns to improve. The issue is that once you get it, it doesn’t always fade when the trigger (UV) is reduced or removed. Melasma is one of the most upsetting of all pigmentation disorders as often the pattern is displayed in a butterfly configuration across the whole face.Commonly it is across the forehead, cheeks and most distressingly across the top lip. And sometimes all three. 


The change of hormones in pregnancy, menopause, certain contraceptive pills and even stress disrupts the function of the melanocytes and cause them to ‘dysfunction’. This means that these dark patches appear almost overnight. 


Interestingly, when melanin is produced it’s actually clear. Only when certain enzymes are released in the cells – tyrosinase does the melanin change to its familiar, darker colour. This change is to protect you from the harmful effects of UV, it’s your body’s way of protecting you from the onslaught of damage that is coming your way once the UV light starts the cascade of damage to your skin cells. 


Whether it’s in the form of sun spots, freckles (sun damage – no child is ever born with freckles), melasma, hyper-pigmentation can cause distress and knock the confidence of the most robust person.

A thorough evaluation is required at our clinic ahead of a Cosmelan® Peel treatment where you’ll be advised which of your current skin treatments you should stop using prior to the treatment date. This prevents any adverse reactions. You may need to prep you skin 2 weeks prior treatment depending on your skin needs. The Peel is applied as a mask in the clinic. It is non-invasive procedure which generally is pain-free. Most patients report mild warm sensation during the process of peeling but no pain. 


The clinical treatment is the first step of the peel, you are then to follow a strict home care routine for 6 months following your treatment. During the following months, we will be in contact with you to make sure that the treatment is going smoothly and recommend regular facials to assist in the ongoing support to maximize your results.

Results will last if clients adhere to the post-treatment plan. It is recommended to continue the use of home care for at least 6 months, which may be extended up to 9 months depending on the progression of each individual case. Cosmelan® 2 can be used indefinitely with longer intervals between applications for maintenance of results, but the Cosmelan® 1 peel can be repeated once per year if needed.
