Firstly, we complete an in-depth consultation and provide products to prep the skin prior to the rest of the treatment commencing. 48 hours prior to the main procedure we perform a prep peel with Mesopeel Melanostop. 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.
The main method consists of one in-clinic treatment followed by a home maintenance, which should be continued for ideally at least 9 months – 1 year.
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.
