Melanin, the natural pigment that determines skin, eye and hair color is usually evenly distributed. But when factors such as sun exposure, heat, hormones or skin injury (e.g. acne, rashes) disturb the melanin cells, the color distribution becomes haphazard, resulting in mismatched skin, brown patches and blemishes. The ingredients of Cosmelan lighten existing pigmentation and regulate future melanin.
The majority of patients experience a significant improvement after just one treatment. However longer term results are dependent on strict home care (as provided as part of the treatment) as well as continued avoidance of sun exposure, triggers for the melasma and daily use of broad spectrum SPF. Many find a repeat treatment at 6 months gives the most optimal results however annual maintenance treatments are also effective.
It is important to remember that hormonal pigmentation (melasma) is a chronic condition with no cure. Dermamelan can control the condition provided triggers and exacerbating factors are avoided by the patient.
Once the mask has been removed at home you may simply go about your normal activities at home. It may be necessary to take time off work and not plan any social events in the few days following the Dermamelan treatment. Your skin will begin to peel and flake off and may feel very tight and dry.
The dryness is generally more evident around the mouth and eyes. Despite the feeling of discomfort, tightness and visible peeling skin it is extremely important not to pick or peel at your skin as this may damage the healthy new skin underneath. Strict adherence to the home maintenance program at this time is essential. All the necessary steps will be explained by our dermal clinicians and we are always happy to review patients during their Dermamelan journey.
The results of the treatment become evident by about 10-14 days with visibly clearer and brighter skin. Ongoing improvement in the skin can be seen over the next three months.
