Many woman and men suffer from pigmented lesion that are difficult to manage with standard skin care and chemical peels. Cosmelan Professional Treatment is the breakthrough procedure that eliminate and control hyper pigmentation through a process of intense depigmentation, continuous depigmentation, control of hyper-pigmentation and preventing reoccurrence. Cosmelan Professional Treatment is effective for these skin conditions:
- Pigmented lesions
- Post-inflamatory hyper-pigmentation
- Texture irregularities
How Are Pigmented Lesions Formed?
Skin pigmentation (melanogenesis) is a natural process where your melanocytes, a cell located in the lower epidermis basal layer, produce melanin to protect your skin against the solar radiation UVA/UVB. Melanin is produced by the oxidisation of the amino acid tyrosine. The natural process of flaking and skin renewal eliminates the melanin. Skin pigmentation disorders occur when excessive localised melanin is produced because of external (sun) or internal (hormone) influences. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production leading to uneven patches of lighter or darker skin.
Melasma is primarily caused by a combination of sun exposure and hormonal changes (estrogen and progesterone) that stimulate the darkening of pigmentation on the skin. It appears as dark patches mainly on the face, typically on the cheekbones, forehead, upper lip and chin.
Cosmelan Professional Treatment
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 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.
Having your skin assessed by a skin expert is the first step, to ensure you know what type of pigmentation you are treating. Once you have a diagnosis, investigating and addressing the underlying causes, for example, the oral contraceptive pill or prolonged UV exposure, is the next step before progressing to treatment.

FAQ's About Cosmelan Treatment
How pigmented lesion removal works
Cosmelan Professional Treatment has active ingredients that are absorbs by the skin during a 6-10 hour period. This initiates a process of intense skin shedding and ejects the pigment from the skin over a week period. It is then followed up with a tyrosinase inhibitor to prevent pigment re-occurrence. Together with a SPF50 sunscreen this program will manage pigmented lesions.
How many treatments are required
Only 1 Cosmelan Professional Treatment is required to see results. 6 monthly treatments may be required for severe cases of melasma. The melasma condition may come back if the underlying triggers are still present therefore Cosmelan Professional treatment is a management solution.
