Cosmelan

for face, neck, decolletage, hands and body

Cosmelan is an innovative system designed to target unwanted pigmentation. Cosmelan works by fading existing pigmentation whilst sedating the formation of new pigment within the skin, working fast and effectively, without the use of hydroquinone. Cosmelan is able to be used on old and new pigment as well as all ethnicities with outstanding results

The first phase of the two-step program is performed in clinic where the skin is prepped, followed by the application of the depigmentation mask.

This mask is then left on the skin between 8 to 12 hours, depending on your skin type, and simply washed off at home with the aftercare products provided.

The following days after the treatment the skin may feel slightly warm and tight. We recommended strict guidelines with homecare to ensure the best results. SPF is vital, as well as keeping the skin well hydrated to help reduce dryness.

The skin may look slightly red when initially washing off the mask at home which may last a few days. The skin may feel tight and can start to flake and may even look a little swollen, this is completely normal. Downtime can vary and can last anywhere from 4 to 14 days but can vary. Again, we strongly recommend using the homecare provided.

This treatment can be performed anytime of the year. Depending on the depth and severity of the pigment most patients may need as little as one to three treatments. Top ups are also available.

Post Treatment

Regardless of the peel chosen, research has shown that using topical antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin A throughout the treatment maximises skin rejuvenation procedure results. It also speeds healing time and in the case of peels reduces the risk of post-treatment complications.

We recommend that clients start a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the treatment and continue for a minimum of 3 months after the last session.

In order to protect and regenerate skin, we recommend using Medik8's vitamin C products in the morning followed by hydration and an SPF, and the use of vitamin A products in the evening to stimulate and correct, followed by hydration.
