What Is Pigmentation
Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Regardless of skin color, they are a significant issue because of their unattractive appearance and negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting 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.
Before & After
What do sessions with Cosmelan® professional treatment consist of?
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 should be applied by the professional, who will establish the application time in each case. After the recommended application time, the patient should remove the product at home, completing the first phase.
48 hours after removing the cosmelan 1 mask, it is necessary to continue with the daily depigmentation routine to supplement the corrective action of the method and to regulate overproduction of melanin inside the melanocyte.
Control of hyperpigmentation
At this point, it is important to treat the root cause of the blemish by regulating overproduction of melanin through constant regulation of the melanocyte. This controls both intra- and intercellular melanin production and prevents repigmentation.
The tendency to develop dark spots represents an ongoing risk. During the control phase, the treatment 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.
