Actually all skin types (1-6) can be treated with this peel. It was, however, designed to be particularly successful in darker skinned individuals (types 4-6). Prior peeling agents risked disfiguring pigmentary change with these people.
No, the Cosmelan MD peel medium is radically different from typical salon or spa acid peels. It is applied by our professional staff in our office and then allowed to “dwell” on the face or other area(s) for a specific time which is dependent on skin type (typically between 8 and 12 hours). It is then removed by the client at home using tepid water and a soft washcloth.
Peeling of the treated skin begins in approximately 48-72 hours and lasting about 3 days. Cosmelan specific moisturizer is provided for multiple applications during the day and nightly. Follow-up is in 7-10 days at which point the treated individual will observe a marked reduction in major discoloration. Pigment reduction continues with the at-home application of the Cosmelan 2 product over the next 3 months.
