Have you heard of Cosmelan?
Cosmelan® is a 2-step intensive topical treatment system designed to reduce and regulate stubborn and dense pigmentation. Cosmelan’s blend of synergistic ingredients works quickly, resulting in an effective reduction of undesirable pigment. Cosmelan regulates the melanin activity, causing the pigment producing cells to slow down their abnormal over-production and function in a more uniform way. Cosmelan is “sun-friendly” so you can use the products and still have an active outdoor lifestyle (with proper sunscreen use, of course!) It works well on all skin types – even darker toned skin. Cosmelan will also produce a slight initial peel which helps refinish the skin surface while diminishing hyper-pigmentation.
Benefits of a Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel:
1. Reduces dark spots and hyperpigmentation
2. Effective in the treatment of Melasma and Cholasma
3. Minimal pain
4. Quick results
5. Gentle enough for all skin types
6. Carries few side effects
7. Beneficial for acne patients
The Ideal Candidate for a Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel
As the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is safe for all skin tones and ethnicities, anyone looking for a fresher, more even complexion can make a potential candidate. The ideal patient will fully understand the Cosmelan Chemical Peel process and the requirements for follow up care. They should also be in overall good health, and hold realistic expectations for their results. The benefits and risks of a Cosmelan Peel will be further discussed during the initial consultation appointment.
DERMAMELAN – Treatment for pigmentation
Dermamelan has similar active ingredients to Cosmelan but at 20% higher concentration and the mask treatment and follow up must be done under strict supervision of a cosmetic doctor. Dermamelan treatment guarantees the improvement of skin blemishes with a very high safety margin. Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment’s principal action is the elimination of melanin patches on the face - melasma, also called chloasma if the pigmentation occurs with pregnancy. Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment involves a very versatile, dynamic process which is easily adapted to the needs of each individual patient. Dermamelan reduces and eliminates skin blemishes of melanic origin, increasing skin luminosity and equalising skin tone
How many treatments will I need?
The face mask is generally applied only once, however for patients with significant pigmentation, a second mask can be applied 2 weeks after the initial treatment. The home application of Dermamelan maintenance cream will continue for several months as advised. The dermamelan pack provides an effective combination of professional treatment and home maintenance cream.
When will I see results?
Depending on the severity of your pigmentation you will begin to see an improvement after 2-8 weeks. You will be advised on how to use the ‘home-care’ products and for how long to prevent the pigmentation from recurring. The daily use of a moisturising sunscreen is essential.
