Cosmelan MD

Treating skin conditions such as melasma and hyperpigmentation is difficult due to how deep it lies within the skin. Even medications or products over the counter have trouble targeting discoloration within the skin’s surface, however, things have changed. Cosmelan MD Depigmentation Treatment offers a non-invasive depigmentation action for all skin types. With a Cosmelan MD treatment, these skin conditions can be greatly improved and flawless.

Cosmelan MD is a depigmentation treatment used to lighten visible skin discolorations such as sun exposure, aging, the hormonal fluctuation due to pregnancy, menopause, or acne. Cosmelan is even highly effective for all types of hyperpigmentation (Melasma, Chloasma, UV and PIH). Studies have shown that Cosmelan can effectively reduce skin discolorations by up to 90% if used appropriately.

What You Should Know

It is important to know that Cosmelan MD is a very versatile product, that can be incorporated into your individual lifestyle. The treatment is safe to use year round, no matter what the weather conditions are. While using Cosmelan MD, it isn’t recommended to combine other treatments due to the possibility of an undesired effect. In order to avoid future blemishes, a skincare regimen is recommended, along with the use of sunblock. Lastly, Cosmelan MD does not require anesthesia or involve any down time. Cosmelan MD is for patients with persistent or particularly resistant pigmentation problems. Depigmentation treatments are individually adapted to the needs of each patient. You may want to discuss how aggressively you wish to treat your skin discoloration, and together we can decide on the proper amount of treatments needed.

Cosmelan MD Process

The Cosmelan MD depigmentation treatment consists of two phases. It is important that both be used as prescribed by your physician to achieve your desired result. A Cosmelan treatment consists of taking a medication prescription that contains an in-office peel application and at-home care products.

There are two types of Cosmelan – Cosmelan and Cosmelan MD. At Flawless Med Spa, we provide Cosmelan MD which involves the same steps as Cosmelan but uses a different active ingredient to achieve the lightening effects. Cosmelan MD contains hydroquinone, which is used to make the peel a bit stronger to reduce skin discoloration and less pigmentation.

Stage 1)

The first stage is applied in our office and involves cleansing the skin and applying a yellow mustard colored mask (Cosmelan 1). The mask will be left on for a total of 4-10 hours depending on your skin type. However, you will not be asked to wait that long in our spa, luckily you will get to go home with the mask on.

Stage 2)

For your at-home care, you will be given instructions for daily use of the Cosmelan 2 and anything else that will be prescribed after your consultation. It is important that you follow the instructions provided to you and use the products appropriately over a two week time period. After a few weeks, it is recommended to return for a follow-up appointment.


You should expect peeling or flaking of the skin after receiving a Cosmelan MD treatment. You may experience stinging and pinkness of the skin can be expected, particularly at night when the home care products are used. Within the first week, most patients notice less blemishes and rejuvenated skin (a luminous glow). At the end of the Cosmelan MD depigmentation treatment, the blemishes may start to disappear altogether and you’ll be left with clearer skin.
