Whoever struggles with discoloration due to acne scarring, sun damage, melasma, or hyperpigmentation can cause brown patches on the cheeks, forehead, and upper lip, whereas acne scars are typically brown. Cosmelan can be done at any time of year on people of any age, skin color, or ethnicity and either new or old pigment deposits. The most standard areas for this treatment are the face, neck, chest, and back of the hands.
Years of research have shown that Cosmelan is the most effective treatment for removing pigmentation. For most people with melasma, a single session of laser therapy is all that is required, and it is safe for all skin types. This incredible 2-in-1 peel does wonders for aging skin, assisting with acne and scarring, rough or dry skin, improving overall skin tone, and more. Cosmelan treatment can be tailored to each individual’s needs.
Why Does Skin Discoloration Happen?
Hyperpigmentation and melasma are characterized by the appearance of dark areas of skin, most commonly on the face but also on the neck. Both conditions can be traced back to an excess of melanin, the skin’s natural pigment. Too much melanin in the skin is also responsible for developing freckles and other forms of facial discoloration, such as acne scars and age spots.
The dark, coffee-stain-like spots when melanin concentrates in one region may require heavy, daily makeup application to conceal. In the long run, chemical peels are preferable to spending a lot of time and money on makeup to cover these blemishes.
Due to the lack of good concealers that don’t make men look like they’re caked in makeup, hyperpigmentation continues to be a problem for many.
How Does Cosmelan Peel Work?
Cosmelan lessens the appearance of preexisting, tenacious pigmentation while also preventing its re-emergence.
Cosmelan works because it blocks the enzyme tyrosinase, essential for melanin production in the skin. Medication is required to activate tyrosinase inhibition. When this is done, the enzyme is again active, and new melanin is created, accelerated by sun exposure. Because of this, it will be necessary to keep using at-home care items.
Melanocytes are not killed off when tyrosinase is inhibited; instead, melanin production is paralyzed or halted without raising the risk of white patches. Cosmelan blocks the production of eumelanin by inhibiting multiple enzymes, not simply dopa tautomerase.
The Cosmelan 1 mask and the Cosmelan 2 maintenance treatment formulations complement one another because they each target different stages of the melanogenesis process. They have been synthesized from both chemical and botanical sources to achieve maximum tyrosinase inhibition.
Cosmelan Peel Process
You can restore your skin’s youthful glow and health with a Cosmelan peel. Given that Cosmelan contains a depigmenting agent, the Cosmelan mask should only be used under the supervision of a licensed esthetician or dermatologist.
Dead skin and other debris are scrubbed off the face, and then a thin coating of Cosmelan mask is applied and left on for four hours. In the beginning stage, the mask may need to be worn continuously for up to eight hours by specific users. Once the application is in, you can leave. Please do not touch the mask until it is time to remove it.
After the time is up, take the mask off and wash it in cold water to get rid of any germs before putting it away. After cleansing, a revitalizing cream like Mesoestetic Hydra-Vital Factor K (or a similar product) is applied to the skin to bring it back to life with calming antioxidants and amino acids that work together to restore the skin’s elasticity and moisture balance.
In the days after the initial mask application, you will utilize other products to reinforce the benefits and determine whether or not a second treatment with Cosmelan is necessary for the best results. Positive results can be produced and sustained with consistent product use and sun protection.
Benefits And Results Of Cosmelan Peel
If you want a clear, even complexion, you may now eliminate pigmentation by as much as 95% without paying for pricey laser treatments or using a cakey concealer. This painless, non-invasive method gets to the root of your skin discoloration so you may finally have the glowing, even skin you’ve always wanted. Most patients feel remarkably better after the first session, and at-home care items are recommended for maintenance.
The following outcomes are possible thanks to this specialized system:
- Improvements in melasma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, as well as all other forms of skin discoloration.
- An enlightened glow to the skin
- Skin-tone normalization
- Melanin production suppression
- Collagen synthesis is boosted.
Over several weeks or months, the Cosmelan peel and at-home solutions “collaborate” to reduce excess melanin synthesis and, by extension, skin discoloration. Since it gets to the source of the issue, deep below the skin, this approach is practical for both sexes. Therefore, the Cosmelan peel is highly recommended for improving their skin’s overall appearance.
Downsides, Recovery, And Post-Procedure Care
The American Academy of Dermatology warns that scarring or infection can occur with any chemical peel. Some less severe side effects include skin redness, itching, and a constricted feeling.
Cosmelan mask treatments are most effective when the prescribed cream is applied and left on the skin overnight. The cream should be reapplied the next day, along with a sunscreen lotion. Follow your doctor’s instructions and use daily sunscreen beginning on day three and continuing for the next thirty days while applying the prescribed creams to your face.
There are at least two drawbacks to the treatment that have been discovered. Your doctor may warn you against doing so if your skin is susceptible. In addition, a long-term skincare routine is essential for the therapy’s effectiveness.
How quickly you bounce back from your Cosmelan treatment depends on various variables. The dark spots should start to fade as soon as a week to two weeks have passed since therapy. Give it three to four weeks, and your skin’s clarity, brightness, and health should improve dramatically.
The appearance of mysterious dark patches on a person’s face is frightening. They can lower your confidence by making you look older than you are.
