Cosmelan Depigmentation is suited to skins that suffer from pigmentation, sun damage and more specifically Melasma. The cosmelan procedure will improve the appearance of:
The treatment is virtually pain free. The patient will only feel some mild to moderate discomfort post treatment with peeling and dryness in certain areas.
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Procedure is an intensive resurfacing treatment that provides up to 10-12 days of downtime. Your skin will be red, swollen and warm for the first 3 days post treatment and then peeling will start. Peeling and dryness can be expected for up to 7-10 days. Sun exposure is to be avoided throughout the downtime with an SPF to protect your skin and your results. All post care products are included in your treatment price which will help speed up the healing phase.
The Cosmelan treatment is performed as a one treatment. Maintenance treatments may be recommended in the future to enhance your results.
The initial application of the mask is only a few moments if a consultation was completed prior. If consulting in the same day expect to be here approx 30-45 minutes. Appointments are done earlier in the day to ensure we can allow the mask to sit on your face for the correct amount of time before bed. The mask will remain on your face for up to 6-10 hours, depending on your skin type.
As successful as our results are with our Cosmelan procedure, Melasma is a form of hormonal pigmentation which unfortunately is out of our control. We would never guarantee that your melasma will be gone forever. We tackle the pigmentation from all angles by ensuring the corrective skincare is always being used, clinical maintenance treatments are followed whilst also referring to a naturopath to treat internally.
Results can be seen in as little as two weeks but can continue to improve with the best results being seen between 30- 60 days following treatment.
Two to three days after the treatment is applied, the skin will begin to flake and peel. For these first few days, the face may feel tight, itch, and be slightly red. It is possible to continue to peel for a couple of weeks post-treatment but this is rare.
The homecare process of Cosmelan 2 maintenance cream is continued to regulate the melanocytes to stop producing the same abnormal production of melanin and continue this regulation production by itself as the skin creates a memory If this is not followed for this amount of time the hyperpigmentation will most likely return as the melanocyte will start producing the same hyperpigmentation.
Any products containing Vitamin C or Retinols (Vitamin A derivative) should be avoided throughout the treatment. These ingredients will be too stimulating for the skin as the Cosmelan does already contain them. Complete aftercare will be discussed with you during your consultation.
During the Cosmelan Treatment, no other procedures should be performed.
