Cosmelan & DERMAMELAN

What is Cosmelan/Dermamelan?

Developed in Spain, Cosmelan and Dermamelan are two individual peels that treat pigmentation. It will be decided by your clinician which one is the right treatment for you.

They are a highly innovative system that gently targets and treats unwanted pigmentation on the face and body. The two-phase intensive treatment programme firstly involves the application of a highly potent depigmenting mask. This is applied at the clinic and it is not washed off for up to (4 hours Dermamelan) and (8-12 hours Cosmelan) following application (dependent on skin type). 

The second treatment phase is an at-home maintenance solution that is applied twice daily to enhance the effects of the mask.

This safe and non-invasive procedure treats the source of pigment formation to deliver a rapidly clearer, brighter and more clarified complexion without the use of lasers.

PREPARATION FOR YOUR COSMELAN OR DERMAMELAN PEEL

Both peels requires preparation. The length of preparation is dependant on your skin type which will be decided by your clinician. It is vital to use the preparation serums to optimise results and protect your skin to prevent further damage for a minimum of 2-4 weeks. The important steps to be taken will be discussed during your consultation.
