Everything you need to know about Cosmelan treatment

At AnewSkin Medical Spa, we offer Cosmelan MD by mesoestetic. This is a prescription treatment for benign skin discolorations. This includes, dark spots and pigmentation of the face, such as melasma. It works to improve the color, texture, tone, and tightness of the skin. This is a safer alternative to optical lasers and IPL systems that could potentially darken the skin, especially with darker skinned individuals.


We start by having you in clinic for a complimentary Observ consultation where we evaluate the state of you skin and determine whether the Cosmelan peel is right for you.

Day of treatment (in-clinic)

In the clinic, we cleanse and prep the skin with a Cosmelan degreaser. This is to remove make-up, oil, and any biologic film that would interfere with the absorption of the product.

We will apply the specially formulated pigment-reduction mask, known as Cosmelan 1, to your face. The process of application is extremely important. This begins the lightening process. The mask looks like peanut butter and will stay on the face 10-12 hours, dependent on skin type.

For this reason, we recommend booking an appointment for the morning. After the specified time has passed, you will wash off the Cosmelan 1 mask with a gentle cleanser. Then, apply the Mesoestetic® melan recovery cream until fully absorbed

Day 2 will continue with the recovery cream and mesoestetic® melan 130+ pigment control mesoprotech during the day for sun protection.

On Day 3 you will begin to apply Cosmelan 2 to the face as directed.

One week and one month after in-clinic treatment

One week after your in-clinic treatment, you will return to clinic for another consultation to monitor your treatment progression.

After one month of using Cosmelan 2 at home, you will return to the office for re-evaluation. We may spot treat residual dark areas of the skin with Cosmelan 1.
