Hyperpigmentation is a condition that’s known to create dark spots on a person’s face and make them look older than they actually are. A highly recommended method of resolving this issue is by visiting a clinic that offers a depigmentation peel treatment therapy known as cosmelan treatment.
Cosmelan is a type of chemical peel that contains a combination of depigmentation agents that work to quickly and effectively treat hyperpigmentation. It’s designed to stop excess melanin production from occurring by supressing the development of an enzyme called Tyrosinase and making the pigment fade. Below, Instant Laser Clinic details six compelling benefits of cosmelan treatment for pigmentation.
1. Treatment of Melasma
Commonly known as hormonal pigmentation, melasma is a condition that causes unwanted pigmentation due to pregnancy or using birth control pills. This condition can be very difficult to treat, especially for people who have a dark skin tone, as they have a high risk of developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) from light-based laser treatments. Cosmelan treatment can be used to minimise the effects of hyperpigmentation even for people with dark skin tones.
2. Reduction of Dark Spots
It can be very distressing for a person to see dark spots on their face such as freckles, sunspots and other marks. Fortunately, dark spots can be treated with a cosmelan peel. This type of peel is designed to accelerate skin cell turnover on the surface of the skin and stop excess melanin accumulation and formation, helping to reduce the intensity of dark spots and prevent them from developing again.
3. No Pain
People who undergo cosmelan treatment won’t feel any pain during the course of their treatment. However, after the cosmelan peel has been washed off, the skin may feel a bit sensitive for one or two weeks while it’s peeling and healing. You’ll be advised on products you can use during this time to minimise irritation.
4. Quick Results
Patients will notice the fading of dark spots and their skin becoming brighter within a week after undergoing a cosmelan treatment. The overall amount of time it takes for a patient to recover will depend on certain factors, but generally speaking, the skin should look cleaner, brighter and healthier in three to four weeks’ time.
5. Suitable for all Skin Types
Unlike certain laser treatments, a cosmelan peel can be used on patients of different ethnicities. This treatment can safely eradicate any unwanted pigmentation from any skin type and skin tone. However, this treatment isn’t recommended for anyone with particularly sensitive skin or rosacea.
6. Can Be Done All Year Round
Patients who are affected by hyperpigmentation can receive cosmelan treatment during any time of the year, as opposed to some laser treatments that can only be performed during the colder months to prevent UV-induced rebound hyperpigmentation. This isn’t necessary when receiving a cosmelan peel.
