What is Cosmelan?
Cosmelan is a topical treatment that is available through dermatologists. The treatment is used to hyper-pigmentation (dark areas on the skin) and some types of skin scarring. Cosmelan may be used on the face or on the body. There are two mechanisms of action that Cosmelan uses to reduce hyper-pigmentation. It exfoliates the skin to even skin tone and it inhibits the production of melanin. Melanin is what produces color in the skin. Cosmelan comes in a kit that contains four products. The four products are a degreasing solution, Cosmelan mask, Cosmelan cream and a Vitamin K cream.
The degreasing agent contains water and acetone. A dermatologist cleanses the skin with the degreasing agent before applying the mask. The purpose of the degreasing agent is to remove oils from the skin so that the Cosmelan mask can easily penetrate the surface of the skin.
A dermatologist applies the Cosmelan mask to the skin. The mask is a strong topical cream mask that works to quickly reduce hyper-pigmentation. After the dermatologist applies the mask, the patient is sent home with instructions on when and how to remove it. The mask is worn for 4 to 8 hours. The more damage to the skin, the longer the mask is worn. The mask is only applied once at the beginning of the Cosmelan treatment.
Cosmelan is a professional, topical brightening treatment that targets all types of brown patches and skin discolorations. It significantly reduces the blemishes caused by increased Melanin production by gently fading the pigment and suppressing further pigment from resurfacing.
