Why come to us for Cosmelan pigmentation removal?

At Authentic Aesthetics we continuously research the leading treatments available to give our clients the best possible results and when trying to find a long term solution for our melasma and pigmentation clients this is where we discovered Cosmelan. With an intense corrective effect Cosmelan regulates the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes (pigment producing cells).

This inhibits and controls the appearance of new dark spots. It’s dual corrective and controlling action achieves both short and long-term results by keeping hyperpigmentation under control. The Cosmelan contains an exclusive combination of active substances with proven efficacy, which act on all phases of the hyperpigmentation process totally eliminating existing hyperpigmentation, preventing it reappearance and stopping the appearance of new dark spots with results visible in just 30-60 days.

What does the Cosmelan method involve? 

The treatment consists of one in-clinic treatment followed by home maintenance, which should be continued for 12 months. The Cosmelan 1 is the professional treatment mask which is applied by a skin professional in clinic and this should be left on for a period of between 8 – 12 hours depending on the clients Fitzpatrick skin type and form of hyperpigmentation. The Cosmelan 2 should then be used by the client at home. This process is started 48 hours post the in-clinic mask and is recommended to be used three times daily in the first month. Twice daily in the 2nd and 3rd month and once in the evening in the 4th month onwards. 

Why is it important the client uses the homecare? 

The homecare process of Cosmelan 2 maintenance cream is continued to allow the melanocyte to stop producing the same abnormal production of melanin and continue to not produce this by its self. If this is not followed for this amount of time, the hyperpigmentation will most likely return as the melanocyte will start producing the same hyperpigmentation.

A consultation is mandatory prior to any treatment to fully access the skin and determine suitability for the treatment.

Cosmelan FAQ

The cosmelan treatment is the world’s leading professional pigmentation removal method. The treatment is suitable for all forms of hyperpigmentation from melasma, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, solar lentigo to ephelides (freckles) and can be used on all skin phototype’s.

Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, and a consequence of uncontrolled, localised overproduction of melanin inside the melanocyte, which causes irregular skin colouration and dark spots. Numerous external and internal factors can cause hyperpigmentation:

 • Genetic Tendency                        • Ageing

 • Sun Exposure                              • Exposure to Chemicals 

• Inflammation                                 • Photosensitising medication

• Hormonal Changes  

With an intensive corrective effect that regulates overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots. It’s dual corrective and controlling action achieves both short and long-term results by keeping hyperpigmentation under control. The cosmelan contains an exclusive combination of active substances with proven efficacy, which act on all phases of the hyperpigmentation process totally eliminating existing hyperpigmentation, preventing it reappearance and stopping the appearance of new dark spots.

The homecare process of cosmelan 2 maintenance cream is continued to allow the melanocyte to stop producing the same abnormal production of melanin and continue to not produce this by its self. If this is not followed for this amount of time, the hyperpigmentation will most likely return as the melanocyte will start producing the same hyperpigmentation.

Results can be seen in as little as two weeks but can continue to improve with the best of the result being seen between 30 and 60 days following the treatment.

Peeling and a little redness and irritation can be expected initially. This may last until the application of cosmelan 2 is reduced in the second month. Melan recovery is recommended to be applied to the skin to reduce the peeling and irritation significantly.

No, cosmelan may also be used on the body and is commonly used on the back, shoulders, arms décolletage and hands, which all commonly experience forms of hyperpigmentation.

The client should be using mesoestetic ultimate W+ foam, melan recovery and melan 130+ alongside their cosmelan 2. Using the products will reduce irritation, peeling and chances of having any adverse reactions. 

Any products containing Vitamin C or retinols should be avoided throughout the treatment. These will be too stimulating for the skin.

During the first month, the skin will be particularly sensitised, and we would therefore only recommend they use the products contained in the aftercare pack with the maintenance cream. After the first month however, when the skin is no longer irritated, we recommend introducing other products from the mesoestetic W+ whitening range, along with the melan tran3x concentrate and melan tran3x gelcream.

During the cosmelan treatment no other procedures should be performed, however the melanostop peel should be performed 48 hours before the cosmelan in-clinic treatment. This will prepare the skin for the treatment removing any dead skin cells and hydrating the skin, allowing the cosmelan to work deeper within the skin.

Laser is a commonly used, highly effective treatment. It is particularly effective for low and medium phototype skins (phototype 1-3) where hyperpigmentation is more visible on the skin surface. Even so, the professional must recommend a maintenance treatment to prevent the reappearance. In higher phototypes (phototype 4-6) however, laser is less effective, and the likelihood of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is higher. The cosmelan method is better tolerated, more efficient and involves a lower risk of recurrence and a longer-lasting result.

When the cosmelan method is followed correctly the majority of clients will only need 1 treatment followed by 12 months of maintenance skincare for permanent results. 

In some cases an additional treatment may be necessary.
