The Cosmelan depigmentation peel is a painless, non-invasive topical skin lightening treatment that removes unsightly blemishes and discolouration. It’s the world’s leading hyperpigmentation treatment, suitable for all skin tones, and has a 95% efficacy rate for treating:

  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Discolouration and dark patches
  • Dull or uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Melasma
  • Rough skin
  • Scarring
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

While some hyperpigmentation treatments contain harsh or damaging chemicals, Cosmelan uses naturally occurring acids like azelaic acid and kojic acid. These substances safely remove blemished skin and inhibit melanin production in hyperpigmented areas to stop the problem from coming back.

Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel

How does the Cosmelan depigmentation peel work?

This treatment requires just one clinic session followed by a structured homecare regime. We provide a specialist Cosmelan aftercare kit containing cleansers, moisturisers and maintenance creams, which is included in the cost of the treatment.

Your practitioner begins by cleansing your face and neck to remove any excess dirt or oils. They then apply a thick Cosmelan mask that will stay on for up to 12 hours depending on your individual treatment goals. You remove the mask at home and use our aftercare kit several times a day for two weeks to protect and moisturise your skin.

What happens after the treatment?

A few days after your initial treatment, your skin will begin to peel and reveal visibly clearer skin underneath. Although this is painless, you might experience redness, dryness and discomfort. This is normal, and our expert team will review your skin’s progress and offer advice virtually and in-clinic over the following weeks.

During the first month after treatment, only use skincare products provided in our aftercare kit. Avoid products containing vitamin C or retinols, as these can interfere with recovery and lessen the results.


Within the first week after treatment, your skin blemishes will fade significantly to reveal a clearer, healthier and brighter complexion. You’ll see the best results within 30-60 days after your Cosmelan depigmentation peel as you continue to use our cooling and moisturising aftercare kit.


Full-facial Cosmelan depigmentation peel treatments cost £950. (This includes the cost of the aftercare kit worth £400.)
