Cosmelan, The professional depigmenting treatment
The Cosmelan anti-stain treatment, recognized as the number 1 in the world, works from the inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase, which is responsible for the formation of melanin, by various mechanisms of action, eliminating the stains commonly known as melasma or chloasma, having a 95% success rate in clinical cases and being the most popular treatment in the world.
Eliminate spots on the skin
Most of the pigmentary alterations are due to exposure to the sun or high temperatures, being common also due to hormonal changes, such as the spots on the face that appear during pregnancy or the use of contraceptive pills.
In the case of people with cystic acne, hyperpigmentation can also be generated in the areas where the pimple was, as well as in adults over 50 years of age, where the spots caused by young sun damage begin to become visible.

How long do I see results?
During the first days, the skin may be slightly red, if the skin is very sensitive, some people experience a slight itch. Sometimes you feel a little burning or hardening of the skin, the first 24 to 48 hours, this being normal, since the skin is being treated. To avoid discomfort, the doctor will provide you with post-treatment creams.
Some patients begin to see a noticeable improvement after a week with the treatment, others need between 10 to 22 days to see the facial blemishes disappear.
Apart from the redness, you could experience a little flaking, so you should apply the product indicated by the doctor at the prescribed frequency. Effects of this type do not last more than 3-4 days.
For best results, we recommend doing the treatment at least 1 week before any important event.
The patient must not have undergone previous depigmenting treatments, especially with glycolic acid with less than a week before the treatment. It is necessary to understand that the treatment begins in the office, and must be continued without interruption with the household products indicated by the doctor, and cannot be mixed with any other treatment.
Follow-up appointments with the doctor should be scheduled on a weekly basis in order to review the results.
