Cosmelan® is a topical cream used to treat dark spots caused by over production of melanin in the skin. It is a depigmentation agent that works by inhibiting the enzyme called tyrosinase, which in turn stops the production of melanin. Cosmelan® treatment’s purpose is the elimination of melanin patches on the face from melasma, sun-damaged age spots, and acne. The process is a completely non-invasive and versatile brown spot treatment process, which is easily adapted to the needs of each individual patient.
Cosmelan® offers some major benefits when compared to other types of depigmentation products on the market. The results are rapid, and the treatment is easy. It is very efficient in repairing all types of skin damage and is compatible with all skin types. Cosmelan® rejuvenates the skin and shrinks the pores, and is very effective for acne patients with residual acne scarring
Cosmelan® claims that minor side effects such as redness, a bit of a burning sensation, and itching after the first treatment are normal. Those sensitive to the treatment due to any of the listed ingredients may experience post inflammatory hyperpigmentation around the lips, chin, the sides of the mouth, and smile lines.
