Pigment alterations are a growing problem globally; they affect more than 90% of adults over 50 and are a relevant concern regardless of skin color, both for its aesthetic impact and for its negative effect on the psychoemotional level and on the quality of life.
Skin hyperpigmentations are alterations in the production of melanin, pigment responsible for skin coloration, being the consequence of an uncontrolled overproduction of melanin within the melanocyte, so that’s why in a localized way an irregular coloration occurs on the skin.
Cosmelan is a professional depigmentating method that provides an intensive corrective action on skin hyperpigmentations while regulating the overproduction of melanin in melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the reappearance of new spots.
Its efficacy is based on its dual mechanism of action that achieves, on one hand, a corrective effect, eliminating hyperpigmentation and, on the other, a regulatory effect, controlling melanin overproduction and thus preventing the appearance of new spots in the long term.
More than a treatment, Cosmelan is a complete method that consists of a single session, which can be performed in aesthetic centers and in dermatological consultations or aesthetic medicine, and at-home maintenance treatment.
The session consists of the application by the professional of the “Cosmelan1 mask” that is allowed to act from 8 to 12 hours, depending on the phototype and sensitivity of the skin to be treated. After these, the mask is removed by the patient at home.
After 48 hours, the follow-up phase begins at home with the application of “Cosmelan 2” maintenance cream, and moisturizing sun protection SPF50+.
This follow-up phase is performed for 7 months to achieve an optimal result and prevent the reappearance of stains/spots.
