How quickly will i see results ?
The most significant change takes place a few weeks after the professional in clinic treatment, it improves skin texture and the pigmentation decreases noticeably. This can give a misleading feeling of success. During this period melanin has been removed from the outermost skin layers, and therefore we see the pigmentation much more faded and the skin smoother and softer, but the origin of the problem has not been controlled yet. The melanocyte, a cell where melanin is produced, is still uncontrolled and continues to produce pigment (melanin) in excess. To re-educate the melanocyte and control this overproduction, it is important to continue a home treatment with regulating action, so that the cell returns to a normal active state and therefore prevent pigmentation from reappearing.
Does the Cosmelan Treatment have any side effects ?
If used correctly and under the supervision of your Aesthetician, there should be very minimal side effects. cosmelan® is a topical treatment, therefore minimally invasive, that does not prevent you from following your normal daily life. However during the initial phase and following the treatment in consultation, the skin may become irritated or show redness. This is totally normal and to be expected, and it will disappear within a few days. During the home phase, it is common to also experience slight peeling/skin shedding and sensitivity, which are symptoms that disappear when applying the home products recommended by your Aesthetician.
Can the pigmentation come back after treatment ?
After your in clinic treatment, excess pigmentation can be removed visibly. However, it is a dynamic process, where the imbalance forming them can cause their recurrence. Therefore, even if the pigmentation is not seen, it is essential to apply a daily regulatory depigmentation treatment and photoprotection throughout the year to prevent repigmentation forming.
This is a 12 month programme and is important when maintain results, that you follow the treatment specific aftecare product advice.
*Missing 1 day of the maintenance products can undo treatment results.
