During treatment

In the clinic we will clean and prepare your skin, then apply a thick Cosmelan mask which will stay on for up to 12 hours. We will inform you how to remove it and give you an after-care kit you can use at home.

Home Care Regime

Once you get home, you remove the mask after the specified period of time, then apply our after-care kit to help protect and moisturise your skin. Peeling will start a few days after application and you’ll need to apply the homecare cream several times a day for two weeks
