Cosmelan Photos

Pigmentation is the darkening of the skin in localised patches, often a result of hormonal fluctuations, sun exposure, inflammation, ageing and certain medications. If you are looking to correct hyperpigmentation, melasma, dark spots, acne scars and freckles, Dr Laniewski offers Cosmelan chemical peels in his practice to repair and restore your skin tone and texture. If you are considering this treatment, take a look at Dr Laniewski’s before and after Cosmelan photos to see if the results appeal to you.

What is Cosmelan?

Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation peel system made up of a two-phase process:

Phase 1: The In-Clinic Peel

The first step of the Cosmelan treatment is performed in-clinic by Dr Laniewski’s team. Your skin will be cleansed and prepared before the Cosmelan 1 peel is applied to your face in a thick layer. This peel works to remove layers of dead skin cells, over time revealing fresh, clear skin.

Depending on your skin type, this peel must be left on for eight to twelve hours. Before leaving the clinic, you will be given instructions on how to remove the peel and provided with an aftercare regimen.

Phase 2: At Home Aftercare

After the specified time, the Cosmelan mask should be removed with a gentle cleanser. Within two to three days, your skin will begin to peel, at which time you should begin applying the Cosmelan 2 cream twice daily. This cream is designed to inhibit the production of melanin, which is the pigment responsible for creating the colour of your skin.

Cosmelan candidates

If you are struggling with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage, freckles or acne scars, you may be a candidate for Cosmelan. Contact Dr Laniewski’s clinic in Sydney to determine whether you are the ideal candidate for this procedure.

Cosmelan results

While some initial changes can be seen within a few days, full results will appear three to six weeks following treatment.

Within the first week, you should notice that blemishes are fading and a brighter skin complexion is breaking through. After a couple of weeks, your skin will begin to take on a shiny, healthy glow. These results will only continue to improve over the weeks that follow.
