Hello, skincare enthusiasts!

As the CEO of a Plastic Surgery Consultancy, I’ve experienced many treatments, each with its unique challenges. Today, I’m here to share my unfiltered experience with Cosmelan – a treatment that brought surprises, trials, and, ultimately, glowing results. So, sit back and learn why this treatment is transformative and requires resilience.

My skin Goals

My initial intention was to enhance the appearance of my skin, through treatments and address concerns related to years of skin damage and pigmentation, which was worsening and making my skin look dull and very aged. That’s when I got recommended to do the Cosmelan treatment, designed to reverse years of sun damage and reveal young, revitalised skin.

Understanding Cosmelan

Cosmelan is a potent depigmentation treatment designed to address various forms of hyperpigmentation, including sunspots, melasma, and acne scars. It’s known for its efficacy in reducing pigmentation, which doesn’t respond to traditional treatments. The treatment combines several active ingredients, such as Azelaic Acid, Kojic Acid, Retinoic Acid, and Vitamin C, to inhibit melanin production and promote skin renewal.

The Process: A Rollercoaster Ride

Imagine this: I’m in the treatment chair, ready to face whatever comes my way. The Cosmelan mask is applied, and I’m set for the experience. However, the mask stays on overnight and has a clay-like appearance. My partner’s reaction was memorable, but the real surprise was waking up to a face resembling a swollen tomato. Over the next few days, my face became increasingly swollen until I could see my cheeks in my eyes. By day four, the peeling began. The most significant relief during this process was a mist spray that cooled my face – a true game-changer.

Step-by-Step Cosmelan Treatment

1. Preparation

The skin is cleansed to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. A pre-exfoliating solution may be used to enhance the peel’s effectiveness.

2. Application

The Cosmelan 1 mask is applied in the clinic and left on for 6-10 hours. Patients then remove it at home using a gentle cleanser.

3. Post-Peel

Over the next few days, skin peeling occurs, revealing fresher skin underneath.

4. Home Care

Starting on day 7, The Cosmelan 2 cream is applied to prevent the recurrence of pigmentation. This maintenance phase continues for several months and includes the use of sunscreens and soothing creams to aid recovery and protect the skin.

From Discomfort to Delight

Those initial days were tough, but there’s a silver lining. As the redness subsided and the peeling slowed, I witnessed a remarkable transformation. My skin became smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated. For the first 7-10 days, I applied a 50% strength version of the mask morning and night. By day ten, I looked like a new person. This nightly treatment continues for up to 60-90 days, and it’s worth every minute if you’re diligent with your routine.

Why People Choose Cosmelan

Cosmelan is effective for treating various skin conditions, including melasma, hyperpigmentation, and age spots. It’s suitable for all skin types and can significantly improve skin tone and texture. The treatment is non-inflammatory, making it safe for patients with darker skin tones who might not be ideal candidates for other depigmentation treatments

Benefits of Cosmelan

1. Reduction in Pigmentation

Cosmelan effectively reduces hyperpigmentation and melasma, resulting in a more even skin tone.

2. Improvement in Skin Texture

The treatment promotes cell turnover and collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Long-lasting Results

With proper maintenance and sun protection, the results of Cosmelan can last for years, making it a worthwhile investment for those struggling with pigmentation issues.

4. Customisable Treatment

Cosmelan can be tailored to individual skin concerns, ensuring optimal results for each patient.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

While Cosmelan is generally safe, some patients may experience temporary redness, irritation, or peeling. It’s crucial to follow post-treatment care instructions carefully to minimise risks and protect the skin from sun exposure.

In conclusion, my experience with Cosmelan was one of resilience and renewal. From redness to peeling to swelling, I’ve seen it all. But through it all, one thing remains clear – Cosmelan is a powerful skincare solution.

From the treatment, my skin’s texture has improved dramatically and is now even and smooth; the pigmentation has significantly reduced. I have changed my botox care from every 3 to every 6 months.
