The Cosmelan treatment is a highly-regarded professional de-pigmentation method used worldwide. It effectively addresses various forms of hyperpigmentation, including melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, solar lentigo, and ephelides (freckles). Suitable for all skin types, Cosmelan is a comprehensive solution for achieving balanced skin tone.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation often arises from factors such as abnormal melanin production in localised areas, resulting in discolouration or dark spots. Genetic predispositions, sun exposure, inflammation, hormonal changes, ageing, exposure to chemicals, and photosensitizing medications can also contribute.

How Cosmelan Works:

Cosmelan initiates an intense corrective effect, regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes. By doing so, it inhibits and controls the appearance of new dark spots. The formula features an exclusive combination of active substances that target all phases of the hyperpigmentation process. This leads to the elimination of existing pigmentation, while also preventing its reappearance and spread..

The Treatment Process

The treatment consists of an in-clinic session followed by a structured home maintenance routine, which should be continued for 12 months. A professional applies the Cosmelan 1 mask during the in-clinic session, leaving it on for a period of 8 to 12 hours, tailored to the client’s needs. After 48 hours, Cosmelan 2 is introduced for home use. Initially, it's advised to use it three times daily in the first month, followed by twice daily in the 2nd and 3rd months. Subsequently, limit usage to once a day.

Ensuring Lasting Results
The homecare process is crucial in preventing excessive melanin production by melanocytes. Consistency is key; irregularity in application may lead to the return of hyperpigmentation. Visible results can be observed in as little as two weeks, with peak improvements typically seen around the 60-day mark.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmelan Peels

Initial mild peeling, redness, and irritation are to be expected. These effects may persist until the application of Cosmelan 2 is reduced in the second month. The use of Melan recovery can significantly alleviate post-treatment effects.

No, Cosmelan can also be effectively applied on various body areas. Clients commonly opt for treatment on their backs, shoulders, arms, décolletage, and hands, all of which can experience different forms of hyperpigmentation over time.

Recommended aftercare includes Mesoestetic ultimate W+ foam, Melan recovery, Melan 130+, and Cosmelan 2. These products work to minimise irritation, peeling, and the likelihood of adverse reactions.

Products containing Vitamin C or retinoids should be avoided during treatment, as they may be too stimulating for sensitised skin. In the first month, it's advised to exclusively use the products provided in the aftercare pack along with the maintenance cream. After the initial month, when the skin is less sensitised, consider introducing other products from the Mesoestetic W+ whitening range, alongside the Melan Tran3x concentrate and Melan Tran3x Gel Cream.

It's recommended to refrain from undergoing any other procedures during Cosmelan treatment. However, the Melanostop Peel can be performed 48 hours prior to the Cosmelan in-clinic session.
This pretreatment step effectively removes dead skin cells and hydrates, allowing the Cosmelan solution to penetrate more effectively.

While laser treatment is highly effective for hyperpigmentation, especially in lower skin prototypes (prototype 1-3), where pigmentation is more surface-level, it often requires maintenance treatments to prevent reappearance. In higher prototypes (prototype 4-6), the laser is less effective, and the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is greater. Cosmelan peels, on the other hand, are generally better tolerated, more efficient, and carry a lower risk of recurrence .
