Cosmelan is a 2-step intensive topical treatment system designed to reduce and regulate stubborn and dense pigmentation. Cosmelan’s blend of synergistic ingredients work fairly quickly, resulting in an effective blending and reduction of undesirable pigment.
Cosmelan regulates the melanin activity, causing the pigment producing cells to slow down their abnormal overproduction and function in a more uniform way. It works well on all skin types – even darker toned Asian, Mediterranean and Latin skin.
Melanin, the natural pigment that determines skin, eye and hair color, is usually evenly distributed. When factors such as sun exposure, heat, hormones or skin injury disturb the melanin cells, the color distribution becomes haphazard, resulting in mismatched skin, brown patches and spots.
The First Step in the Cosmelan program is the application of a pigment reduction activating mask called Cosmelan I. This is a key component in stimulating the quick response. The special Cosmelan Mask is left on your skin for 5 to 10 hours depending on your skin type and sensitivity level.
The At-Home program will consist of active ingredient products that you will use on a consistent basis to further improve pigmentation problems and prevent excess pigment formation. The maintenance cream, Cosmelan II, will be used on an ongoing basis.
