Cosmelan is a professional and brightening treatment that aims at targeting all types of brown patches and skin discolorations. It is a face-peeling mask commonly used in melasma treatment and removal of facial pigmentation. Cosmelan Treatment is meant to inhibit tyrosinase - an enzyme functional in the melanin formation process. Cosmelan significantly reduces the blemishes caused by increased melanin production by softly fading the pigment and holding back further pigment from resurfacing. Therefore, if you suffer from hyper pigmentation, melasma, or any other skin problems that cause dark patches of skin to appear on your face, there are a number of options to treat them - one of them being Cosmelan Peel.
Cosmelan Treatment begins with the Dermatologist cleaning the skin to ensure that no excess oil or dead skin cells remain. Thereafter, the Cosmelan Mask is applied and left for up to eight hours. Once you are home, you can remove the Cosmelan Mask on your own and then apply a secondary cream on a daily basis, until the skin is healed. Multiple treatments will be necessary before you see any visible results.
After the treatment, you may experience tightening of the skin and peeling during the initial stages of treatment.
