Many women and men suffer from pigmented lesions that are difficult to manage with standard skin care and chemical peels. Cosmelan Professional Treatment is a breakthrough procedure that eliminates and controls hyper-pigmentation through a process of intense depigmentation, continuous depigmentation, control of hyper-pigmentation and preventing reoccurrence.
Cosmelan Professional Treatment
Cosmelan Professional Treatment is effective for these skin conditions:
- Pigmented lesions
- Post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
- Texture irregularities
Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation peel system. 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 6-10 hours. On the third day, the skin will have some extreme peeling. After 7 days, the second step using Cosmelan 2 is applied to prevent reoccurrence. This is a tyrosinase inhibitor, which works by sedating the production of excess melanin.
When it comes to melasma treatment, a regular maintenance program is essential to reduce the chances of reoccurrence. Cosmelan may be required every 6 months in severe cases. A tyrosinase inhibitor is required for as long as the person wishes to prevent the formation of new pigmentation.
Cosmelan Professional active ingredients:
- Kojic acid
- Octadecenedioic acid
- Vitamin C
- Tyronsinol complex
- Salicylic acid
- Nonapeptide 1
- Liquorice extract
- Aloe vera extract
Client Case Study
The images you see here are of the actual client and all images are unfiltered.
This client had mild melasma due to sun exposure. Like many people living in Australia the melasma occurred while under the harsh Australian sun. The client didn't experience melasma while living overseas when she was young. The Australian sun has more damaging UV radiation due to the reduced ozone layer.
Application of Cosmelan Professional Treatment
The Cosmelan Professional Treatment is applied to the whole face in a thick layer, ensuring complete coverage. The skin is first cleansed and excess oil is removed. This in-clinic process takes about 10-15 mins. The treatment is left on the skin for 6-10 hours depending on the skin type. There is no discomfort but it is advised to make sure you do not have any social plans during this period.
Removal of Cosmelan Professional Treatment
After the 6-10 hour period the treatment is removed with water. The skin will be a little red once the treatment is removed. Due to the long period of time the treatment has to work, the active ingredients are able to gently absorb deep into the skin. This is compared to aggressive chemical peels that dissolve the epidermis in minutes thereby creating wound trauma. Cosmelan Professional Treatment creates less trauma while being able to intensively treat the deeper layers of the skin where the pigmented lesions lie.
1 day after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
The skin is starting to become red and plump due to the blood flushing the area where the treatment was applied. The process of skin shedding and wound healing has been stimulated. The body sends blood to the effected areas, flooding the skin with collagen, red and white blood cells.
2 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
Skin may become more red and plump. The body's wound healing process is working under the skin.
3 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
Normally this is when intense skin shedding occurs. The pigmented lesions are ejected from the skin through the shedding of the skin. Skin is still red but the swelling starts subsiding.
4 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
The shedding of the skin slows down and the skin starts calming down. The take home skin care pack is now used to gently cleanse and moisturise the skin.
5 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
Skin is starting to return to normal with very little shedding still occurring.
6 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
A large amount of the pigmented lesions have been ejected from the skin. Fine lines and texture of the skin are also improved. You can see that the skin appearance is smoother.
7 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
Skin is completely recovered and showing further improvement. Cosmelan 2 serum is now used to prevent the formation of new melasma.
8 days after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
This is the sort of result that Cosmelan Professional Treatment delivers 1 week after the process.
2 months after Cosmelan Professional Treatment
The skin appearance further improves, as long as a prescribed active skin care routine is maintained. Cosmelan 2 serum is used twice a week and will be needed for as long as you want to keep the pigmented lesions under control. SPF50 sunscreen is essential to protect from the sun. Maintenance program of Cosmelan Professional Treatment every 6 months may be required for severe pigmented lesion conditions.
