Pigmentation is no match for the potent and skin-transforming Cosmelan and Dermamelan Depigmentation Peels!
Give me the lowdown
The Cosmelan and Dermamelan Peels are the world’s leading and most effective treatments for reducing unwanted pigmentation. The peels work by exfoliating layers of built-up dead skin cells and inhibit the production of melanin, which is responsible for the colour and tone of our skin (and the main culprit behind those pesky dark spots!) By treating the source of pigment formation, these holy grail peels can drastically reduce areas of discolouration, and give you the insanely clear, bright and evenly-toned complexion you’ve been dreaming of! Both peels have a two phase approach, part one involving the application of the mask in-clinic, and part two, a 6-8 week at-home maintenance program to enhance the effects of the mask. After your peel has been applied in-clinic, that gorgeous face of yours will be going home with the mask on for approximately 6-8 hours, so it’s a good idea to plan your day accordingly. Your skin specialist will let you know exactly when to wash the mask off, so in the meantime just sit back, pop on your fave Netflix series, and let the peel work its magic! Initial results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks, however full results are seen approximately 4-6 weeks post treatment. Use of further supportive products may be needed for up to 6 months to help maintain those epic skin results. It’s important to stay in touch with us throughout your depigmentation journey so we can support you every step of the way. There is some downtime involved with these peels and you will experience redness, dryness and flakiness as those fresh baby skin cells start to appear, but trust us when we say it’s totally worth it! We’ve got you boo. Let’s do this!
Is it right for me?
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is an excellent treatment for all types of skin discolouration, including hyperpigmentation, melasma, sun damage, age spots, freckles, scarring and discolouration from acne. Also fab for overall skin brightening! The Dermamelan Peel is 20% stronger than the Cosmelan Peel and is best suited for clearing more stubborn pigmentation like severe melasma. A consultation in-clinic is essential to determine which peel is right for you and whether you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment. Before you get started on your Depigmentation journey, you’ll need to be using a Vitamin A serum to help prepare the skin for your in-clinic peel. Vitamin A helps reduce any rapid shedding and scaly looking skin (cos ain’t nobody got time for hibernating like a snake!) Please note these treatments are not suitable for babes who are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to get pregnant.

Handy to know
Although these depigmentation peels can be performed at any time of the year, we recommend scheduling them during the cooler months when there’s less sun exposure. You’re also likely to be spending more time indoors due to the chilly weather, so it’s the perfect time to let your precious skin recover!
SC Pro Tip
When committing to the Cosmelan or Dermamelan Peel, you need to be absolutely on point with your sun protection. We cannot stress this enough! Remember you’re at your most sun sensitive for the first month post-treatment because you’ll be using your home care products day and night. So don’t forget to apply and reapply your SPF50+ every single day. Capish?
