This treatment reduces freckles, age spots and pigmentation by using a two phased approach. First it deactivates a critical enzyme in the production of melanin and then with at home care it eliminates existing excess pigment deposits.
Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation method which has an intensive corrective effect on skin hyperpigmentation whilst regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting, and controlling the appearance of new dark spots.
Its efficacy is based on its double mechanism of action that on the one part has a corrective effect, eliminating the hyperpigmentation and a regulation effect which controls the overproduction of melanin and prevents the appearance of new spots long term.
Anyone concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused from Acne can benefit from Cosmelan. It is safe to be performed at any time of year, on new or stubborn pigment deposits, all ages and skin colours.
We do recommend a consultation prior to booking as this is an intensive treatment which requires a commitment to following the at home skincare routine, the post appointment follow up's, as well as 2 appointments for skin preparation peels 2 weeks before the cosmelan peel can be done.
7 DAYS DOWNTIME AND MILD DISCOMFORT
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a two-step process.
Part one is the application of a stimulating mask at our clinic.
Part two is the continued application of Cosmelan products from home. Detailed instructions on how to use the products at home will be provided and discussed at your appointment.
Part one, the application of the mask at our clinic is a very quick and fuss free process.
What does the treatment involve?
Cosmelan is a complete method that involves a single session and a home maintenance treatment.
The session entails us professionally applying the face mask (Cosmelan 1) which is then left to work for 8-12 hrs according to the sensitivity of the skin to be treated. A slight itching or stinging sensation and tightness can be felt. After this time is elapsed the mask is removed at home (Just rinse off in the shower).
48 hours later, the follow up phase in your home starts with the application of the Cosmelan 2, hydra vital factor K cream and the moisturising sun protection. This phase is carried out for 7 months to achieve an optimal result and prevent the reappearance of spots.
How long does the treatment last?
If you continue to use the Cosmelan 2 cream, you will maintain the results. In some cases where the pigmentation is deep the treatment may need to be repeated – after the first treatment the pigmentation will be much lighter.
What happens after my treatment?
Your skin will be red and feel tight after the treatment for 3-4 days. Mild to moderate peeling can be experienced for up to one week. It is important to wear sunscreen daily and reduce exposure to sunlight.
