Over time, our skin may develop issues with hyperpigmentation or scarring due to a variety of factors, such as time spent in the sun, hormones, injuries, and acne breakouts. This can make you look older than you are and contribute to an uneven texture and tone in your skin that is difficult to hide under makeup. With the Cosmelan depigmentation peel at EsthetixMD in Bend, OR, you can begin to reverse these skin imperfections for beautiful, evenly toned skin that has a smooth texture.
Treating hyperpigmentation with the Cosmelan chemical peel
The Cosmelan peel is specifically formulated to provide phenomenal results for people who are experiencing hyperpigmentation issues in their skin, such as:
- Sun spots
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation after skin injuries or inflammation
The Cosmelan peel has been scientifically shown to provide significant improvements in these issues, and it is highly versatile. It can be used on all types of skin and ethnic groups, and it is not just for your face – it can be used on any part of the body that has hyperpigmentation. The peel consists of several unique ingredients that are known to target pigmentation and boost your skin’s natural regeneration processes, leading to a bright, healthy glow in addition to a reduced appearance of pigmentation.
Cosmelan peel for acne
Hyperpigmentation isn’t the only issue that the Cosmelan peel treats – if you suffer from acne or scars from past breakouts, the Cosmelan peel can help combat your acne and restore the smooth surface and texture of your skin. In addition to resurfacing your skin to reduce the appearance of acne scars, it works to combat acne by balancing the oil production in your skin, which can lead to clogged pores and active acne breakouts.
What to expect
Since the Cosmelan peel is a compounded peel, the first step is to consult with Dr. Jeffrey Scott or Allison Jones, NP to discuss whether the Cosmelan peel is right for you, and if so, to determine the best formulation for your specific needs. During the procedure, we first cleanse your skin thoroughly to enable the treatment to easily penetrate your skin. Then, we will apply the Cosmelan peel to your skin and gently massage it in. It has the consistency of peanut butter and feels soft and smooth. Many patients also feel a tingling sensation. After it is applied, you return home and allow the mask to work for six to ten hours (we will advise you on the specific amount of time for your needs), then wash it off with lukewarm water.
