the world's leading professional depigmentation method
Skin pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 30, regardless of skin color or ethnic background. Hyperpigmentation can have a negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting the quality of life. 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. Skin discoloration is one of the most common reasons for visiting a cosmetic professional.
The Cosmelan® peel is a professional depigmenting treatment designed to eliminate or reduce dark spots of melanic origin on the skin while unifying the skin tone and enhancing skin luminosity. It is an intensive treatment with dual action: it both corrects and regulates hyper-pigmentation, achieving short and long-term results. It is a chemical peel commonly used to treat facial pigmentation issues like melasma by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme in the melanin formation process, and unevenness on the face and neck.
The Cosmelan® formula contains an exclusive combination of active ingredients that act on all stages of the hyperpigmentation process to completely eliminate existing hyperpigmentation, preventing both their reappearance and the appearance of new dark spots.
Results To Be Expected
A significant reduction in dark patches may be detected as soon as one week after starting treatment. Once the peeling is complete the skin will appear luminous and rejuvenated and will continue to improve with the use of home care products.
What do sessions with Cosmelan® professional treatment consist of?
1. Intense depigmentation
In the salon with removal at home after 8 -12 hours
Following a deep cleansing with the oil-removing solution, Cosmelan® 1 has a powerful depigmenting effect due to its high concentration of active ingredients. The product is applied by the professional, who will establish the application time in each case. After the recommended application time, the client removes the product at home, completing the first phase.
2. Continuous depigmentation
At home - Month 1
48 hours after removing the Cosmelan® 1 mask, it is necessary to continue with the daily depigmentation routine by using Cosmelan® 2 cream and Vitak K Hydrator (included with the initial treatment) to supplement the corrective action of the method and to regulate the overproduction of melanin inside the melanocyte.
3. Control of hyperpigmentation
At home - Months 2 & 3
At this point, it is important to treat the root cause of the blemish by regulating the overproduction of melanin through constant regulation of the melanocyte. This controls both intra and intercellular melanin production and prevents repigmentation.
4. Controlling reappearance
At home - Months 4 - 7
The tendency to develop dark spots represents an ongoing risk. During the control phase, the treatment with Cosmelan® 2 cream prevents the reappearance of the treated spots and the formation of new ones, for a longer-lasting result.
Once the method is complete, we strongly recommend continuous use of sun protection as a permanent cosmetic treatment.
