Cosmelan | Overview

What is Cosmelan?

Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation peel system. We are Cosmelan Specialists. As the world’s leading professional depigmentation method, Cosmelan effectively reduces the dark spots caused by melanin, hyperpigmentation and ageing.

Its exclusive formula has been demonstrated to achieve incredible results on over 1 million clients worldwide – proving effective on all kinds of blemishes and ALL skin colours!

It is a two-phase process with the first step performed in the clinic. The Cosmelan 1 peel is applied to the face and left on for 8-12 hours. It is totally worth it!

What is the process of Cosmelan?

When it comes to melasma regular maintenance program is essential to reduce the chances of reoccurrence. Cosmelan may be required every 6 months in severe cases. A pigment (tyrosinase) inhibitor is required for as long as the person wishes to prevent the formation of new pigmentation.

Having your skin assessed by a skin expert is the first step, to ensure you know what type of pigmentation you are treating. Once you have a diagnosis, investigating and addressing the underlying causes, for example, the oral contraceptive pill or prolonged UV exposure, is the next step before progressing to treatment.

How long does Cosmelan last?

Results can be seen within a few days. Full results are typically seen after 3 to 6 weeks of treatment.
After a few days (within the first week) patients will notice skin blemishes fading, and a brighter skin complexion breaking through.
After a couple weeks, the skin will start to take on a shiny, healthier glow.
These results will continue to improve over the fourth or fifth week, when the full benefits of a Cosmelan Peel can be seen.

If you continue to follow the Cosmelan home care, your results will continue to last for years to come.

What is the Cosmelan Process?

The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a two-step process.

Part one is the application of a stimulating mask at our clinic. Part two is the continued application of Cosmelan products from home. Detailed instructions on how to use the products at home will be provided and discussed at your appointment.

Part 1: The In-Clinic Mask

Part one, the application of the mask at our clinic is a very quick and fuss free process.
1. Your skin is cleansed and prepared.
2. The Cosmelan mask is applied in a thick layer.
3. The Mask may lightly sting upon application, but will quickly cease
4. Depending on your skin type, the mask must stay on between six and twelve hours.
5. You will be instructed on when and how to remove the mask at home.
6. An after-care kit will be provided to you and you will be informed on how to use your at home products.

Part 2: The Home Care Regimen

1. After the specified time, the Cosmelan mask is removed with a gentle, neutral cleanser.
2. Immediately, the Mesoestetic Hydra-Vital Factor K is applied to comfort the skin and protect moisture.
3. Peeling generally begins two to three days after the mask’s application.
4. Cosmelan II cream should be applied two to three times a day for two weeks.
5. After the first 14 days, Cosmelan II can be applied once daily.

Is there any downtime with Cosmelan?

After Cosmelan, you can expect the following changes post treatment:
+ Mild to moderate redness and discomfort.
+ Tightness and itchiness.
+ Skin to feel tight or itch.
+ It is extremely important that you do not pick at your face
+ Your face will go through intense peeling as the pigmented skin is shed in the process. Do not peel the skin, instead carefully use scissors to remove any large flakes.

The continuous use of a high protection sunscreen is essential, since both natural and artificial light can stimulate melanin synthesis.

During the first week after treatment, it is advisable to avoid the following activities: swimming in pools, sauna, exposure to direct heat sources, outdoor sports.
