Chemcial Peels & Pigmentation
Chemical peeling is the chemical method of exfoliation and skin destruction. The aim is to alter the appearance of the skin through the regeneration of new epidermis. Ingredients used in the peels help to encourage neocollagenesis, increase cell turnover, reduce existing hyperpigmentation and temporarily reduce excessive skin oils. Therefore chemical peels are used for anti-aging,to treat acne, rosacea, irregular pigmentation and scars. A course of chemical peels will lead to long term results, and are offered in conjunction with home skincare regimes.
The major chemicals used are:
- Alpha hydroxy acids, such as lactic, glycolic, malic and mandelic.
- Salicylic acid and other beta hydroxy acids
- Jessner’s solution is a mix of 14% lactic acid, salicylic acid 14%, resourcinol and phenolic acid
- Trichloracetic acid (TCA) and phenol

Cosmelan® DePigmentation Peel
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a unique, multi-ingredient chemical treatment designed to reduce areas of skin discolouration and hyperpigmentation.
Melanin is responsible for the darkening of the skin and contributing to such factors as melasma and other skin discolourations. Melanin is increased by sun exposure, acne, ageing, and hormone fluctuation. The Cosmelan Peel decreases the skin’s natural melanin production by inhibiting an enzyme (tyrosinase), providing an even complexion.
