Many of our clients complain of stubborn pigmentation they have had for years. They have literally tried everything from IPL and Laser, Skin needling, peels and lightening products with little or no result.

Where these other treatments can be effective on surface pigmentation, stubborn pigmentation like Melasma, Hyper or Hypo pigmentation and dark spots can be reluctant.

For the best results with unwanted pigmentation a combination approach is necessary and simple options are tried first to control rather than cure the condition. Ongoing topical treatments and sunscreen are very important.

Pigmentation is primarily due to excessive melon and, which is the naturally occurring Brown pigmentation that is the main determinant of your skin colour. And is produced by skin cells called melanocytes and most pigmentation problems are due an excessive number of melanocytes and/or an increased production of melanin by these pigment cells.

There are 3 main things that worsen pigmentation: hormones, sun damage and skin trauma/inflammation. Several causes can be present in the same person at the same time. Pigmentation occurs at different levels in the skin either superficial (epidermal), deeper (dermal) or a mixture of both and this is important in determining the choice of which treatment will work best.

Cosmelan Professional Depigmentation Treatment

Cosmelan is a highly innovative system that gently targets and treats unwanted pigmentation on the face and body. Cosmelan can deliver exciting results even after 1 procedure.

The active cosmeceutical ingredients are effective yet gentle to ensure comfortable and successful results. The treatment may be performed any time of the year including throughout the summer. Cosmelan does not contain any aggressive hydroquinone or bleaching agents.

The two-phase intensive treatment programme firstly involves the application of a highly potent depigmenting mask. This is applied at the clinic and it is not washed off for up to 6-10 hours following application (dependent on skin type).

The second treatment phase is an at-home maintenance solution that is applied twice daily to enhance the effects of the mask. This safe and non-invasive procedure treats the source of pigment formation to deliver a rapidly clearer, brighter and more clarified complexion without the use of lasers.

Can any skin type be treated?

Cosmelan is best for people concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation caused from acne. The treatment may be performed on both old, stubborn and new pigment deposits on clients of all ages and ethnicities. The unique active ingredients used in the Cosmelan depigmenting mask and cream enable effective treatment and results on all skin colours and ethnicities. The clinical mask is required to activate for 6 hours on fairer complexions, 8 hours for olive and up to 10 hours for darker complexions.

Are there any side effects having a Cosmelan treatment?

Side effects associated with Cosmelan treatments are rare but in the event of an occurrence this can be easily managed. Individuals may experience mild to moderate redness with slight swelling following the removal of the in-clinic mask. During the post treatment period it is common for the skin to feel tight or itchy. Any tightness may be easily relieved by applying a nourishing moisturiser such as Hydra-Vital Factor K. It is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure following a Cosmelan treatment and to wear a broad-spectrum SPF30 every day before, during and following treatment.

Are Cosmelan treatments just for the face?

Though the face is the most common area to be treated with Cosmelan, the neck, chest and backs of the hands may also be addressed. As the clinical de-pigmenting mask needs to be left on for up to 10 hours, this can create some minor inconvenience for body areas such as the chest or hands. To avoid staining to clothing, it is recommended to wear loose-fitting, dark garments whilst the mask is activating.
