cosmelan treatment

Cosmelan & Dermamelan is the world’s leading depigmentation method. It is an intensive treatment with a dual action: it both corrects and regulates hyper-pigmentation, achieving short and long-term results. It is a chemical peel commonly used to treat facial pigmentation issues like melasma by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme in the melanin formation process and unevenness on the face and neck.

Cosmelan & Dermamelan consists of 3 phases:

Phase1 – is your pre-peel routine that prepares your skin pre-procedure. The better prepared your skin is the better the result and the lower the risk of inflammation or discomfort. Your pre-treatment products must be used for 4 – 6 weeks prior to the peel application treatment.

Phase 2 – The in-clinic treatment that takes about an hour and includes the application of the cosmelan mask. Once the mask is applied you will be taken through the protocol carefully and you are able to go home. you will be instructed to remove the mask after a specified period of time.

Phase 3 – The maintenance period over the next 12 months, which is critical to the success of the Cosmelan & Dermamelan treatment. You will be prescribed home care products and given careful instructions to follow to best maintain your result. Home care products during the first month include: Mesoestetics Mesoprotech Melan 130+ Pigment Control, Melan Recovery and Cosmelan & Dermamelan maintenance cream. During the next 11 months the following additional home care treatments will be included in your treatment plan.

Results to be expected

A significant reduction in dark patches may be detected as soon as one week after starting treatment. Once peeling is complete the skin will appear luminous and rejuvenated and will continue to improve with the use of home care products.
