Dr. Jason Emer’s experience as one of the most innovative cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills has fueled his passion for building an ingredient-conscious, effective and versatile portfolio of skincare products, regimens and procedures.
The gold standard leave-on peel, Cosmelan, is one of the preferred methods of treatment for patients with melasma, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, burns and acne scars—particularly when used in combination with a skin care lightening and brightening protocol.
Cosmelan is a non-inflammatory depigmentation treatment that induces the face to peel over the course of two weeks; this peel specifically targets pigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme in the melanin (skin pigmentation) formation process. At the same time, Cosmelan accelerates cellular turnover to remove dead skin cells, lift pigment, soften texture, smooth the skin, and reduce pores and fine lines.
When used both before and after laser and radiofrequency procedures, peels like Cosmelan can decrease the risk of post- inflammatory hyperpigmentation from energy-based treatments, especially for those individuals with darker skin types and mixed ethnicities.
REAL PATIENT STORY
A lighter version of Cosmelan, called Enlighten, was developed by Dr. Emer for those seeking less downtime or patients looking to peel more often to continue improvement. The Enlighten mask is a proprietary combination of hydroquinone, retinol, salicylic acid, kojic acid, arbutin, niacinamide, and vitamin C. Following a thorough consultation and analysis in Beverly Hills, Dr. Emer and our skilled West Hollywood aestheticians select the perfect peel and skin care protocol to prepare the skin, allowing the lasers to penetrate much deeper and resulting in a more effective treatment overall.
Anyone who struggles with hyperpigmentation, including melasma, lentigo or freckles may find relief using the Cosmelan Peel. The Cosmelan Peel can be used any time of year on all skin tones, colors and textures. It is extremely safe, yet effective, producing brilliant, age-defying results. Patients suffering from acne scarring have found Cosmelan to be a significant solution to their skincare problems. Dr. Emer will help to determine which is more appropriate for your skin, the regular strength peel that does not contain hydroquinone, AHA or TCA – or the medical strength version that contains hydroquinone and retinoic acid.
