Cosmelan® treatment is one of the most effective depigmentation treatments available and is currently one of the the most widely sold skin whitening / brightening treatment in the world reducing pigmentation up to 90-95%. Cosmelan® is a topical skin whitening treatment that reduces dark spots and patches.
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a moderate chemical treatment designed to decrease areas of hyper-pigmentation, reducing the pigmentation that occurs due to sun exposure, acne, ageing, and hormone fluctuation.How does Cosmelan work? Cosmelan inhibits an enzyme called Tyrosinase, responsible for the manufacture of melanin. By slowing the melanin production, dark areas of pigmentation will soon fade.

The second part is the continued application of specific Cosmelan products from home. Again full instructions and advice regarding your aftercare is provided. We see you again 48 hours following your mask application to review your skin, we then take you through your next month of aftercare which does require application of your products three times per day.
One month later we review your skin, by this time much of the visible pigmentation will have faded, we then advise your next two months aftercare which is using your products just twice a day.
At the end of month three, we review your results again, you will be used to your fabulous new skin tone by this time so it is crucial to continue with your at home care and again we take you through your next four to twelve months which is using your Cosmelan creams just once a day.
Throughout your whole treatment you must commit to a daily application of a very high SPF, this must be used throughout the year and is advised as part of your skin care regime moving forward to maintain results.

Two to three days after the treatment is applied, the skin will begin to flake, crack and peel. For these first few days, the face may feel tight, itch, and be slightly red and swollen. It is possible to continue to peel for the next four weeks post treatment, we can help you manage dry and sensitive skin on the protocol.
Sometimes as pigmentation lifts from the dermis to the epidermis, patches of pigmentation can appear darker, this is a positive sign that we can help to improve with the programme.
