The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a unique peel which helps reduce dark spots, melasma, and other blemishes, and it’s available here at Skin by Lovely.
Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, CA, at Skin by Lovely
While our practice’s primary focus is on injectables, we recognized a need for patients who required skin rejuvenation which cosmetic injections could not address. Even with BOTOX and dermal fillers to smooth out lines and restore lost facial volume, dark spots and uneven skin tone can make us look older. This is why our top rated aesthetics practice offers Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel as part of our hand-selected collection of skin rejuvenation treatments.

When you come to Skin by Lovely, you’re entrusting your skin rejuvenation to board-certified physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses who are committed to high-quality care.
Benefits of the Cosmelan Peel
Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin collects in areas of your skin. If melanin builds up, it can make an area darker than the surrounding tissue. Darkened patches can be caused by hormonal changes, sun damage, and scars.
To address these blemishes, the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel uses several proven skin brightening ingredients, including pharmaceutical-grade hydroquinone for skin lightening. When prescribed and applied by an experienced aesthetics provider, dark patches will fade without affecting your natural skin tone.
After your peel, you’ll use an at-home cream which will help maintain your smooth skin tone. The cream, Cosmelan 2, also contains hydroquinone to prevent the dark spots from returning.
What to Expect at Skin by Lovely
At Skin by Lovely, we want to give you the beautiful results you desire in a relaxed, professional setting. With a holistic approach to care, we strive to help our patients enjoy natural-looking results in a comfortable, positive environment.
During your private consultation, your provider will discuss your concerns as they examine your skin. They will review your medical history as well as talk to you about your aesthetic goals. They will also make recommendations based on your desired outcome and inform you of every facet of treatment. Together, you will create a personalized treatment plan designed to achieve and maintain the naturally beautiful look you crave.
If we determine that this chemical peel is right for you, we will proceed with treatment. The Cosmelan Peel procedure will occur in two steps. During the first step, your provider will gently cleanse the treatment area before applying the chemical peel. The entire process should take less than an hour, and you’ll return home while still wearing the peel. After it has been in place for eight to twelve hours, you’ll remove it as directed in your aftercare instructions. The second phase will begin 48 hours later with your first use of the Cosmelan 2 cream. This will be applied two to three times per day for the first two weeks and then daily for up to a year to maintain your results.
Cosmelan Peels do not require the use of anesthetics, and most clients report experiencing only a mild tingling sensation.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
As this peel must be applied for several hours, we recommend you plan accordingly. Most clients prefer to relax at home afterward. The treated area will most likely be red with some possible tenderness over a couple of days following application. This is normal and indicates the peel is working.
Two to three days after treatment, your skin will peel or flake. Once the peeling and flaking stop, the moment you’ve been patiently waiting for has happened. The blemishes you addressed should be significantly diminished. This will gradually continue as your skin continues to heal.
by the second week, you’ll notice that your skin has a new healthy glow. You can expect to see the complete results after four or five weeks.
