Just spotted Mesoestetic products on the Derm Store, $300! This is HUGE! I’ve never seen them available to the public before!
Does it work? Hells to the yes!
Cosmelan is a two-part skin lightening treatment system created by Mesoestetic USA Laboratories. It is used to treat hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage, acne scars & melasma.
I have what doctors consider to be severe hyperpigmentation – thanks to my Italian heritage. I wanted a sure fit way to get rid of the dark spots on my face, really no matter the cost & in my opinion it wasn’t all that bad. According to experts, 95% of the dark spots are gone once you’re finished with the treatment…. But there’s a catch – they come back. So it’s a mixed bag… but would I do it again? In a New York minute!
You will purchase this product from your local skin care doc (DO NOT get it on Amazon – it’s a fake), my cost was $1,000 and they will apply step one of the two step system – Cosmelan 1 in their office. They will put the mask all over your face and you will leave looking like you have baby poop on your face. Beautiful! (I wish I saved that picture of me) You will leave that sucker on for 7-12 hours so plan to stay home that day unless you’re insane! Then you will begin applying Cosmelan 2 and the hydra-vital factor K product for several weeks, then you will repeat the mask, this time at home.
All in all, it takes about 8 weeks for this process to be completed. That is, if you choose to repeat the mask.
The healing process is something else… your skin will be swollen and red… like a lobster, but you just put plenty of moisture on it and you’ll be fine. Not included in the healing kit is a product I heavily relied on was a product from Skin Medica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream. It’s specifically formulated for dry or post-procedure skin so I would highly recommend it. Make sure you do NOT go out in the sun, I repeat- AVOID the sun. Make sure you use sunscreen every day to avoid scarring.
And you’re done! I couldn’t believe how well it worked. My dark spots came back in about 6 months but I felt beautiful for that period and will keep doing it. I absolutely wouldn’t spend my money on anything else other than products like Retinol and Vitamin C to maintain my glowing skin.
- Treats lots of types of hyperpigmentation
- Extremely effective
- Easy to use
- Healing process isn’t ideal but it works
- Hard to find (I’ve found one doctor in Tucson who does it)

Let me know what you think! Have questions? Just holler!
