Cosmelan Treatment Silk Laser Clinics

cosmelan® is the world’s leading professional depigmentation treatment.

These blemishes have various origins from genetics to ethnicity, gender, pregnancy, oral contraceptive use, menopause, and so on. The sun is also a triggering factor that can increase the incidence of newly appearing blemishes and the reappearance of blemishes already established.

cosmelan® method efficacy has been demonstrated in numerous studies under medical supervision. More than 1 million patients treated worldwide, in any skin phototype (I-VI) and in all ethnicities. If you’re ready to restore your radiance, start your cosmelan® journey in the clinic today.

How it works

cosmelan® targets every stage of spot formation. It has excellent results, both short and long-term due to its dual action mechanism: corrective + regulatory.

Using a unique combination of active ingredients, it visibly treats the spot, while promoting skin resilience to help prevent the appearance of future skin discolouration.

During the treatment, the skin will be prepped with an oil-removing solution to allow even penetration of the peel. Tingling and a strong smell is expected.

The thick, clay-coloured cosmelan® 1 mask will be applied and must be left on at home for a period of 8-12 hours. The duration will be dependent on Fitzpatrick type and skin condition. During the treatment, whilst the mask is on, a non-active water mist will need to be used to keep the product moist (not wet) to ensure it does not dry out. This product can be purchased at most chemists.

Once the mask has been left on for the desired time, it will need to be completed but gently removed at home using room-temperature water and fibrella wipes, these will be provided by the clinic. Once removed, a small amount of cosmelan® recovery is to be applied and allowed to dry before bed.
