Cosmelan FAQs
What is Cosmelan?

Cosmelan is a product that can treat all types of pigmentation such as melasma, post-inflammatory pigmentation, solar and senile lentigo (age spots) and freckles. Cosmelan is a peel procedure to reduce surface pigment followed by a special skincare regime to reduce pigment over three months. This treats the source of pigment by reducing melanin overproduction at the melanocyte.

How many treatments will I need?

The Cosmelan Peel package includes 1 or 2 treatments in clinic with 1 x Free LED treatment & your 3 month Cosmelan home skincare kit.

The Cosmelan Deluxe Package includes 1 or 2 treatments in clinic and 1 X Free LED treatment & your 7 month Cosmelan home skincare kit.
Whether you have 1 or 2 treatments will be discussed during an in-depth consultation to determine the right treatment for the concern.

The treatment

The Cosmelan treatment mask will be applied in clinic.
• The treatment mask is a thick, brown texture and is to be left on the skin for 8-12 hours.
• You need to have day where you do not need to work or be visible given the mask remains on your face for 8-12 hours.
• The treatment must be had in the morning as you cannot sleep with the treatment mask on your face.
• It is advised that you take an antihistamine to aid with the swelling and the inflammatory process for the next 5 days.

Who should not have Cosmelan?

You should not have Cosmelan if you are pregnant or planning on getting pregnant; breastfeeding; allergic to any component of Cosmelan; on antibiotics, isotretinoin or hydroquinone; have a skin infection; or have recently had a peel or IPL/laser treatment in the area.

What does the 3-month treatment course involve?

Before treatment: For best results, use skincare with Vitamin A and C a month prior to treatment. We may also advise a peel a week prior, depending on your skin sensitivity.

Treatment: The Cosmelan mask will be applied in-clinic and you will wash it off later at home, after approximately 8 hours.

Aftercare: You may wish to take antihistamine to reduce itching. Once your skin has settled you will start using the pHbalanced skin care kit with products provided, instead of your usual skincare regime. Using this homecare daily is essential to long term pigment reduction. After 3 months, we advise switching to a skincare regime with Vitamin A, C and pigment inhibitor for the next 4 months.

There will be a follow-up appointment to attend at some stage during the 3 month treatment.

Are there any side effects?

In the first 12 to 48 hours you may experience some swelling and redness of the treated area. Very rarely this may last longer than 48 hours.

What should I do after the 3-month Cosmelan treatment period ends?

To keep pigment at bay, it is essential to avoid sun exposure and regularly apply SPF 30+ throughout the day. You must switch to a skincare regime that continues to inhibit melanin production, with Vitamin A (at night) and C (in the morning) plus a pigment inhibitor cream, for at least the next 4 months. Whilst Cosmelan is an effective treatment, there is no guarantee of permanent results. Your pigment may return over time, especially with UV exposure.

What Results will I see?

As the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment is safe for all ethnicities and skin tones, anyone seeking out a fresher, more even complexion is an ideal candidate.
Within a week, clients will see skin blemishes begin to fade significantly, and a brighter complexion will break through. After a couple of weeks, the skin will take on a dramatically shinier, healthier glow. These results will continue to improve even further over the following weeks when the full benefits of a Cosmelan Peel can be seen.

What is Melanin?

As well as language, culture, eye shape, and hair colour, we’re all very different when it comes to the unique colour of our skin. Skin colour is determined by the pigment known as melanin, which we all possess, just in different ratios. Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes. Skin blemishes of melanic origin on the face and body are now a more common complaint among many of us. Any skin discolouration and pigmentation features we each individually possess are caused by many of these environmental factors that are not always within our control such as age, genetics, race, gender, sun exposure, acne, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy or menopause, and even the use of oral contraceptive.

It’s only possible to remove unattractive skin blemishes and recover the smoothness of the skin with a treatment that has a direct effect on the intimate formation process of the pigment (melanin). Thankfully, all the skin issues mentioned so far can be successfully addressed with the revolutionary new Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel.

The top-selling brand Mesoestetic Cosmelan treatment, which our expert technicians are trained to use, works to lighten visible skin discolourations and positively impact the cell cycle that causes pigment to surface.

The cosmetic treatment affects the cells directly responsible for skin pigmentation by decreasing any colour production to significantly reduce and even eliminate the appearance of unattractive blemishes.

For up to 95% reduction with the world’s leading and most effective treatment for pigmentation caused by melanin.
