Cosmelan® is a professional, topical brightening treatment that targets all types of brown patches and skin discolorations. It significantly reduces the blemishes caused by increased Melanin production by gently fading the pigment and suppressing further pigment from resurfacing.
Cosmelan® is a treatment that improves the appearance of excess pigmentation. It is most effective in the treatment of hyper-pigmentation (excess pigmentation) caused by the influence of female hormones on the skin of the face, pigmentation from sun exposure and pigmentation as a result of acne or traumatic inflammation. It is also effective in treating pigmentation associated with scarring. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and tones.
How does it work?
Cosmelan® is a topical depigmentation treatment, most typically used to improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and certain types of pigmented scarring. Both the face and the body can benefit from treatment with Cosmelan®. Cosmelan® inhibits the action of Tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for the production of melanin. Melanin is increased by aging, acne, hormone fluctuations, sun exposure and inflammation, which can causes irregular darkening of the skin.
What will I expect after treatment?
You can expect a significant drying and peeling of the skin over a period of three to four days post-treatment after which, a noticeable improvement in the skin is observed. The areas of problematic pigmentation are greatly reduced, and the skin appears luminous, revived, fresh and smooth.
What are the risks or side effects of treatment?
Mild to severe peeling, redness, slight scabbing and sensitivity to the sun is normal in the first few days after the treatment. Some people experience dryness, tightness, soreness and itching for up to two weeks after the initial treatment. Those suffering from recurrent herpes infections may have a recurrence of cold sores.
