LAB SKIN CLINIC is an Accredited & Certified Specialist Depigmentation Centre.
The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel at LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay, is considered to be the world’s number one melasma and de-pigmentation treatment. Cosmelan is a 6-month depigmentation treatment protocol that is designed to resolve all types of pigmentation and it is especially effective in reducing melasma.
Worldwide, pigmentation is perceived as the third most important skin problem after wrinkles and sagging and is the number one concern for most Australian women – especially those with Melasma. Suitable for all skin types, a Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel lightens and brightens the skin and equalises overall skin tone plus it leaves the skin looking luminous.
The Cosmelan method has proven efficacy tests which support any skin photo type and in all ethnicities. Cosmelan is used as a brightening method with a dual action, achieving short and long-term results by keeping hyper-pigmentation under control.
This treatment is a targeted system which:
- Reduces all types of skin pigmentation including melasma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
- Increases skin luminosity
- Equalises skin tone
- Inhibits the formation of melanin
- Increases collagen production
Between one to three preparatory skin peels (the exact number is determined by your specialist) to remove corneocytic compaction are performed one week apart.
The Cosmelan Peel is applied in the clinic and remains on your face for between 8 to 12 hours. The mask is washed off at home and you may expect 2 to 7 days (sometimes up to 14 days) of light to heavy peeling, redness, sensitivity and mild swelling. The following day after the treatment you are given an Omnilux Medical LED to assist with the healing process and reduce redness.
After the first week, skin appears luminous, revived, fresh and smooth. The Cosmelan pack includes take home products to assist in the skins healing phase and prevent pigment from returning. It is imperative that you stick to the home care regime prescribed for you in order to keep the pigment from returning.
The Cosmelan Peel treatment works by inhibiting the skin’s melanin production. After your treatment, there is potential for new melanin to be created, especially with sun exposure, which is why you will need to use Cosmelan home care products to maintain results.
A Cosmelan Peel treatment includes tyrosinase inhibitors, which have been developed from vegetable and chemical origin to guarantee maximum levels of tyrosinase inhibition. Tyrosinase inhibitors stop melanin production without the risk of white blemishes appearing. .
Cosmelan 1 Mask and Cosmelan 2 Maintenance Treatment Formulas act on the different melanogenesis stages and give long-lasting results, which usually do not require a follow-up treatment.
