Ever since I was a child, I loved to make people feel and look beautiful.
Mesoestetic Cosmelan

Review: Mesoestetic Cosmelan

UPDATE: Read our newest blog on how my melasma is 98% gone!

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.

Cosmelan Disadvantages

  • Healing process isn’t ideal but it works

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