The world’s leading depigmentation treatment, Cosmelan, is the end result of years of research. It is usually a one off treatment suitable for all skin types and pigmentation concerns, including melasma. This amazing 2 in 1 peel also helps with acne and acne scarring, rough or dry skin, general skin tone and anti-aging. The Cosmelan treatment is a versatile process adapted to the needs of each individual.
Who can benefit from Cosmelan?
Anyone concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused from Acne. Melasma can present itself as bilateral patches of uneven skin tone on cheeks, forehead and upper lip, whilst acne scars are often brown marks on the skin. Cosmelan is safe to be performed at any time of year, on new or stubborn pigment deposits, all ages, skin colours and ethnicities. It is generally performed on the face, neck, chest and back of hands.
What are the main benefits of Cosmelan?
You can now achieve up to 95% reduction in pigmentation and finally have an even complexion without the use of lasers or foundation! This safe and non-invasive procedure treats the source of pigment formation and delivers you a brighter, clearer and more clarified luminous complexion. Most clients see a dramatic reduction in just 1 session and to ensure long lasting results, home care products are recommended.
This specialised system can deliver the following results:
- A reduction in all types of skin pigmentation including melasma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
- Increased skin luminosity
- Equalisation of skin tone
- Inhibition of the formation of melanin
- Increased collagen production
And how does Cosmelan work?
Cosmelan fades the appearance of existing and stubborn pigmentation whilst preventing the formation of future pigmentation production.
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 treatment and are there any side effects?
A mask is applied at our clinic that remains on your face for 8 hours. The treatment itself only takes around 20-30 minutes. 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 skin’s 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.
Is there any downtime?
There is usually 3-4 days of skin redness and mild to moderate peeling can be experienced for up to a week.
