For those of you dealing with any type of Pigmentation, here is some great information about our new Cosmelan treatments.
COSMELAN DE-PIGMENTATION TREATMENT BY MESOESTHETIC
This one off treatment is designed to address all types of pigmentation concerns including melasma. It is suitable for all skin types, it will lighten and brighten the skin equalising skin tone and increase luminosity.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
This treatment consists of a specialised system aiming to:
- Reduce all types of skin pigmentation including melasma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
- Increase skin luminosity
- Equalises skin tone
- Inhibits the formation of melanin
- Increases collagen production
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Cosmelan treatment works by decreasing the skin’s melanin production by inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase.
Inhibition of the tyrosinase is only activated during treatment application. When finished, the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure. Due to this, application of Home care products must be used to maintain results.
Under no circumstance does tyrosinase inhibition make the melanocytes disappear, but simply paralyses or stops melanin production, without risk of white blemishes appearing. Cosmelan action causes complementary inhibition of other enzymes involved in the eumelanin production process, like dopa tautomerase, among others.
Cosmelan 1 mask and Cosmelan 2 maintenance treatment formulas act on the different melanogenesis stages to increase effects and achieve certain synergy. they have been developed from vegetable and chemical origin to guarantee maximum level of tyrosinase inhibition.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT AND WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
A mask is applied at our clinic that remains on your face for 8-12 hours. The mask is washed off at home and you may expect 2 to 7 days of light to heavy peeling, redness, sensitivity and mild swelling. The following day after the treatment you are offered to lie under the Rejuvalight LED to assist with the healing process and reduce redness.
The result? After the initial week, skin appears luminous, revived, fresh and smooth.The Cosmelan pack includes take home products to assist in the skins healing phase and prevent pigment from returning. It is imperative that you stick to the home care regime prescribed for you in order to keep the pigment from returning.
