What is Cosmelan?

Cosmelan treatment is currently one of the most effective methods to lighten the skin. Cosmelan treatment is very safe, this is why individuals with various skin types can apply it. It is perfect for those having discolorations, freckles or sun-burn skin changes. The skin after Cosmelan treatment looks younger and is clearly lightened, in addition, tension of the skin is extended and small wrinkles are smooth.
How does Cosmelan treatment look like?
The treatment has two stages. The first one is to apply a strongly peeling mask at a doctor’s. Depending on the skin phototype and kind, that mask should remain on the skin surface from 5 to 8 hours. After the time of exposure recommended by the doctor, the patient removes the mask at home, cleansing the skin thoroughly with lukewarm water. When bearing the mask on the skin and after removing it, avoid exposing your skin to sun and heat sources. The second stage is the home treatment 1 to 2 months long – regular application of Cosmelan cream the patient is given with at the Clinic. The cream increases the depigmenting action of the Cosmelan mask by way of controlling melanin production, as an effect, preventing from both discolorations appearing again and new discolorations coming into existence.
