This treatment is designed to eliminate or reduce dark spots of melanic origin on the skin while unifying the skin tone and enhancing skin luminosity. Here at Aesthetics Lab we offer an effective, non-surgical treatment for the appearance of pigmentation on the skin.
Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, and is a consequence of uncontrolled, localized overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, causing irregular skin coloration and dark spots.
Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation method which has an intensive corrective effect on skin hyperpigmentations whilst regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots.
Its efficacy is based on its double mechanism of action that on the one part has a corrective effect, eliminating the hyperpigmentation and, on the other, a regulating effect, controlling the overproduction of melanin and in this way preventing the appearance of new spots in the long term.
The first step towards your treatment is a bespoke consultation with our Treatment Coordinator. During this informal chat which can be done virtually or in clinic, we will take a look at your medical history to rule out any possible contraindications. This is also a great time to ask us any questions you may have – we always answer honestly and openly.
Cosmelan is a complete method that involves a single session.
The session entails the professional applying the cosmelan 1 face mask which is then left to work for 8 to 12 hours, according to the phototype and sensitivity of the skin to be treated. After this time has elapsed the mask is removed at home.
An after care kit will be provided and you will be instructed on when and how to remove the mask at home.
48 hours later, the follow-up phase in your home is started with the application of the cosmelan 2, hydra-vital factor K cream and the moisturizing sun protection SPF50+ .
This follow-up phase is carried out for 7 months to achieve an optimal result and prevent the reappearance of spots.
