Ideal treatment for:
Depigmentation therapy effectively removes pigmentation from your skin, restores smoothness and leaves a radiant finish. It is one of the only effective melasma treatments.
Using high strength formulations applied in-centre, depigmentation therapy helps to draw unwanted pigment to the surface of your skin and shed it away, revealing a brighter and more even complexion. The treatment follows a multi-step approach including at-home skin preparations prior to the deep peel with either Cosmelan (a milder treatment for less severe pigmentation) or Dermamelan (a medical treatment performed by our Aesthetic Doctors for more severe cases).

The Cosmelan peel is available at our centres in Hobart, Toowoomba, Terrigal, Gold Coast, Berwick, and Coorparoo.
During your skin consultation, our expert team will tailor a treatment plan for your individual needs and skin type, including either a Cosmelan or Dermamelan peel. There are some at-home skin preparations required prior to the peel treatment. The treatment involves the application of a thick paste on your skin which is left in place for up to 12 hours. The application only takes about 15 minutes in-centre and then you can return home. Ongoing homecare treatment will be discussed at your consultation and continues for up to five months.
Downtime will vary depending on your treatment plan which will be provided to you at your consultation. Results will show within seven to 14 days and your skin will appear visibly brighter and glowing, with diminishing pigmentation. Wrinkles and fine lines may also be reduced for a more youthful appearance. The results of depigmentation therapy can be prolonged by carefully following the homecare routine.
Following pre- and post-treatment care guidelines is essential to optimise your results. One of our Aesthetic Doctors or Skin Therapists will walk you through the contraindications, side-effects and homecare routine. Learn more here.
Cosmelan is a milder peel designed to treat less severe pigmentation. It contains less active ingredients and can be performed by our Skin Therapists in-centre. Dermamelan contains salicylic acid (among other addiitonal active ingredients) and is suitable for more severe cases and sebaceous skin. These peels are performed only by our experienced Aesthetic Doctors.
Depigmentation therapy provides visible, long-term results. In 99% of cases, intensity of spot colour is reduced by 95%. In one study, Dermamelan and Cosmelan treatments were found to be 100% effective in all the treated cases, with visible results from the first week of treatment. There was a noted improvement in skin quality and a reduction of superficial wrinkles in 100% of patients and it was effective across all ethnic skin types.
Laser therapy and IPL are commonly used to combat pigmentation problems, but these are expensive and invasive treatments which don’t always work for all skin types and may even cause hyperpigmentation. Topical alternatives like chemical peels can help ease pigmentation but often offer only a short-term solution to a long-term problem.
Depigmentation therapy with Cosmelan or Dermamelan is an effective, multi-step approach to treat skin pigmentation. It delivers fast, ongoing and pain-free results and also helps to prevent further pigmentation problems in the future.
Depigmentation therapy is not painful. The peel application is very quick and feels similar to a facial treatment – so there’s nothing to worry about! You may have sensitive or reddened skin for two days following the treatment.
To achieve optimal results, an at-home skincare routine is required for up to five months. Our expert team will take you through the steps and you can learn more in the post-care guidelines above.
