What is Acnelan?

Acnelan by mesoestetic is an innovative medical grade peel for mild to moderate acne. A topical treatment proven to reduce active acne while simultaneously preventing the formation of new breakouts. It combines clinical peel treatments with three months of at-home skincare to target acne triggers and prevent recurrence.

The secret to the acnelan peel is the innovative m.acne complex™, a unique combination of active ingredients known to treat acne-prone, effectively reduce redness and swelling in lesions and reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).


Acnelan combines deep clinical peels with at-home products to deliver guaranteed results. It effectively reduces acne lesions, clears pores, and removes impurities. The acnelan peel also keeps the acne under control and prevents recurrence by reducing oils and eliminating acne-causing bacteria.

Expect and plan for 5-7 days downtime with this treatment.

For new clients that we haven’t yet treated your skin, you will need one salicylic peel 21 days prior to prepare the skin prior to having this treatment, which isn’t included in the pricing. Please note there is 5-7 days downtime for skin peels. You’ll also need to prepare the skin for 4 weeks prior to treatment at-home with the mesoestetic resurfacing peel booster, applied every night under moisturiser (stop peel booster 5 days before).

To maintain the results of the acnelan peel, following the strict at-home skincare is essential. The products are included as part of the treatment package price. Our expert team will take you through the steps and the post-care guidelines. In some severe cases, you may require 2-3 treatment cycles to completely resolve the acne.

Acnelan is an intensive clinical peel which you’ll need to plan anywhere from 5-7 days of downtime. Your skin may experience sensitivity and redness for the first 3 days post treatment, possibly followed by peeling. Sun exposure is to be avoided during this time; and an SPF is a MUST to protect your skin and your results. All post care products and LEDs are included in your treatment price which will help speed up the healing phase.
