Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment

We are able to offer a treatment, effective in managing hyperpigmentation, melasma, sun spots, blotchy and scarred skin.

The Cosmelan and Dermamelan Depigmentation treatments are unique, multi ingredient chemical treatments designed to reduce and clear pigmentation and discolouration.

The Cosmelan and Dermamelan treatments decrease the skins natural melanin production by inhibiting certain enzymes and then clearing discolouration, providing an even complexion. Suitable to treat face, neck and décolleté. Dark spots, blemishes, acne scars, dull, unhealthy skin can all be significantly improved with this treatment.
Melasma can be eliminated with the Dermamelan treatment and is the only effective and safe option we use to treat this. Cosmelan and Dermamelan also balances the skins oil production to improve acne.

The treatment is a three month commitment which includes two steps;

Step one – in clinic treatment (mask) application;

  • Skin is cleansed and prepped
  • Cosmelan or Dermamelan mask is applied (no discomfort)
  • Depending on the level of correction required, the mask must stay on between eight and twelve hours
  • Client is instructed on when and how to remove the mask at home
  • An after care kit will be provided

Step two – the home care regime;

  • After the specified time the mask is removed with water only
  • Peeling usually begins two to three days after the application
  • Cosmelan 2 cream or Dermamelan cream should be applied twice daily for four weeks or until your first ‘in clinic’ skin check
  • At your first skin check, advice will be given on the next four weeks home care procedure

Further in clinic skin checks will be booked to suit your skins specific needs, over the remaining three to six months. In order for you to achieve optimum results it is recommended you attend all skin checks and follow our advice!
