If you have unwanted pigmentation on your face or body, you may want to consider Cosmelan depigmentation treatment. A highly innovative two-phase procedure, Cosmelan can be useful for conditions such as pigmentation and sun spots as well as post-acne marks and melasma. At Skiin, we use Cosmelan to help achieve clearer and brighter complexions for our patients. Our clinic also makes use of the world’s best technologies from brands such as Cutera and Skiintera to achieve the best results for our patients.
Our Cosmelan peel procedures are safe and non-invasive, treating the source of pigmentation and providing relatively rapid results. Anywhere from one to three treatments may be sufficient for you to achieve your optimal outcome. Patients of all ages and ethnicities with old or new pigment deposits have the potential to benefit from Cosmelan depigmentation treatment.
Our Cosmelan peel in Melbourne is a two-step process. An in-salon treatment mask is performed first, which is applied by one of our dermal clinicians. The mask is then left on for 6 to 10 hours depending on skin type and depth of pigmentation. The mask is then rinsed off by the patient at home. Following this, the second step is an at-home maintenance product to help enhance the effects of the mask. This product can be applied twice a day to enhance the effects of the mask.
Cosmelan is for patients who are concerned with various types of pigmentation. Our Cosmelan depigmentation procedure is designed to fade existing pigmentation and reduce the production of future excess melanin. It can also be an effective treatment for melasma, brown post-acne marks, sun spots and ultra-violet skin damage.
Only one treatment is required for the Cosmelan process. However, our dermal clinicians suggest coming in for maintenance in between having a treatment like this done. Full effects may take up to 3 to 12 months to show an accurate result.
No, the peel is not painful. However, there can be some downtime with this treatment. You may experience some redness, slight swelling and a tight skin feeling a few days after having the treatment done.
All skin types can be suitable for a Cosmelan peel. The length of time that the mask is left on will be based on the skin Fitzpatrick Scale (colour).
Yes, you should avoid direct sun exposure, tanning beds and using certain products that can cause a reaction. Wearing SPF sunscreen is essential after a Cosmelan treatment.
