Side Effects of Cosmelan

    Common Side Effects

    • Redness and flaking of your skin is common after a Cosmelan treatment, reports New Image Cosmetic Surgery of San Diego.

    Other Side Effects

    • Less common side effects of Cosmelan are also possible, including itching and tightness of your skin.

    Time Frame

    • The skin irritation possible with Cosmelan typically develops within the first day of your treatment and may last up to two weeks, according to La Jolla Dermatology.

    Prevention

    • Your skin practitioner is likely to give you a skin cream that contains Vitamin K, which should help reduce many of the side effects of Cosmelan when used as described, according to La Jolla Dermatology.

    Warning

    • To prevent severe skin side effects like blistering, avoid combining Cosmelan with any other treatment for skin hyperpigmentation, cautions New Image Cosmetic Surgery of San Diego.
