This one-off treatment is designed to address all types of pigmentation concerns including melasma.

It is suitable for all skin types. This treatment blocks the body’s biological process that causes skin discoloration. The active ingredients lighten existing discoloration while inhibiting discoloration in the skin’s deeper layers from surfacing.

What results can I expect?

This treatment consists of a specialised system aiming to:

  • Reduce all types of skin pigmentation including melasma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
  • Increase skin luminosity
  • Equalises skin tone
  • Inhibits the formation of melanin
  • Increases collagen production

How Does it Work?

The Cosmelan treatment works by decreasing the skin’s melanin production by inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase. Inhibition of the tyrosinase is activated only during the treatment application period. Post treatment the enzyme activity will recover, commence producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure. Due to this, application of home care products must is essential to maintain results.

Under no circumstance does tyrosinase inhibition make the melanocytes disappear, but simply paralyses or stops melanin production, without risk of white blemishes appearing. Cosmelan action causes complementary inhibition of other enzymes involved in the eumelanin production process, like dopa tautomerase, among others.

The formula contains high antioxidant, free radical powder, helps stimulate collagen production and cell renewal, revitalising the skin. The skin becomes more luminous and radiant.

This is a 2 part process: Cosmelan 1 mask and Cosmelan 2 maintenance treatment formula act on the different melanogenesis stages to increase effect. The formula has been developed from vegetable and chemical origin to ensure maximum level of tyrosinase inhibition.
