Have you ever considered using an acne scar removal cream? Skip the infomercials and opt for a professional consultation instead. From hyperpigmentation to face discoloration, Cosmelan is the top melasma cream trusted by doctors. The best part is that nearly everyone qualifies to use it.
What is Cosmelan?
Cosmelan is a skin treatment designed to minimize facial blemishes – namely melasma and dark sun spots. To understand its effects is to understand what happens underneath the epidermis.
The human body produces thousands of enzymes, one of which is tyrosinase. This metabolic enzyme contributes to the production of melanin, which is largely to blame for dark skin spots that leave you with a blotchy unsightly face. Repeated treatments block tyrosinase, thereby blocking melanin as well.
How it Works
Unlike painful alternatives, this procedure is a three-step regimen that involves only a hyperpigmentation cream.
- The first application is always applied in our San Diego, CA, office so that the doctor can evaluate your skin type. He or she will clean your skin to remove dead skin cells, oil, and debris. Next, they will apply the Cosmelan 1 Cream (containing azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid, arbutine, and titanium dioxide). Because every client has unique skin, the first step will determine how long the mask stays on. The total duration usually lasts from 6-10 hours; however, you’ll be able to go home once the mask is applied. Just remove with a neutral cleaner and water.
- The second step is to be completed immediately after removing the mask. Clients will apply Mesoestetic – the Hydra Vital Factor K Cream that contains Hydroviton, vitamin K, vitamin E, amniotic fluid, glycerine, and silicone oil.
- The final part of the treatment program is at-home maintenance, which entails the use of a daily cream: Cosmelan 2. Apply 2-3 times per day for two weeks, then once per day.
What to Expect
While the solution works beneath the skin, you may experience some discoloration resembling a sun burn. Your skin also might feel extra sensitive and may itch, burn, or feel tight. The side effects will decrease with consistent use of the Hydra Vital Factor K Cream – one of the best skin-lightening creams on the market. Results are rapid and long-lasting, reducing blemishes by up to 95 percent.
