Who is the treatment suitable for?
Cosmelan Depigmentation is suited to skins that suffer from pigmentation, sun damage and more specifically Melasma. The cosmelan procedure will improve the appearance of:
Pigmentation and uneven tones
Lack-lustre dull skin
Is the Cosmelan procedure painful?
The treatment is pain free. The patient will only feel discomfort post treatment with peeling and dryness.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Yes. Cosmelan Depigmentation Procedure is an intensive resurfacing treatment that provides up to 10-12 days of downtime. Your skin will be red, swollen and warm for the first 3 days post treatment and then peeling will start. Peeling and dryness can be expected for up to 7-10 days. Sun exposure is to be avoided throughout the downtime with an SPF to protect your skin and your results. All pre and post care products are included in your treatment price which will help speed up the healing phase.
When will I notice results?
Results being seen after one treatment of Cosmelan is to be expected. Maintenance of pigmentation will always be needed.
Will my pigmentation or melasma return?
As successful as our results are with our Cosmelan procedure, Melasma is a form of hormonal pigmentation which unfortunately is out of our control. We would never guarantee that your melasma will be gone forever. We tackle the pigmentation from all angles by ensuring the corrective skincare is always being used whilst also referring to a naturopath to treat internally.
How many sessions will I need?
The Cosmelan treatment is performed as a once off treatment. Maintenance treatments may be recommended in your initial skin consultation.
