Phase 1: Treatment Day involves an indepth discussion about what to expect in the coming days (30-40mins depending on how many questions you may have) and then the application of a thick brown mask which takes approx 20 minutes. You will go home with the mask on or if you prefer to treat at home just book the AT HOME option. It is recommended to book a morning appointment as you can not fall asleep with this mask on your face.
Phase 2: The start of phase 2 starts on Day 4 after the professional peel and consists of a 8 week program of using the Cosmelan 2 home maintenance cream morning and night, which is critical to the success of the treatment.
Phase 3: The start of phase 3 is when we reduce our Cosmelan 2 home maintenance cream to night application only as long as your reduction is where you wish it to be, we continue this for a 6 month period. Skin Radiance Clinic will recommend certain products to add into your morning routine however they are optional.
Phase 4: Our maintenance phase, we recommend using Cosmelan 2 ongoing approximately 3-4 times per week to maintain your results. Please note there is nothing in Cosmelan 2 which is harmful to you or your skin so you can continue to use as needed.
Downtime / Aftercare
Day 1-2: expect redness, heat, tightness and potential swelling. Everyone is different though so you may experience some or all.
Day 3-7: peeling will start around this time and may last 5-7 days. Most clients peeling is over by day 4/5 after the Cosmelan peel. It is very important to not bring heat to your face for the initial 5-7 days, do not pick, rub or exfoliate the skin. The skin needs to shed naturally and picking can lead to post inflammatory pigmentation so just follow your clinicians advice. You also are provided with moisturisers and hydrating masks to use to assist in the peeling and flaking skin.
Most activities like exercising and makeup can be resumed after day 5.
Initial results will appear 2-3 weeks post treatment day. Significant improvement in pigmentation will be seen as well as improved skin texture and overall brightness of your skin. We then need to work on regulating those pigment cells to further reduce and maintain the results achieved. Be patient this is a program not a quick fix solution.
The perfect thing about this treatment program is the suitability for all skin types and skin colours.
Cosmelan depigmentation peels were introduced into Australia around 1990 and is manufactured in Spain. It was specially created and produced to treat a darker / olive complexion with melasma and pigmentation concerns. With the phenomenal results achieved on a olive / melasma prone skin, the beauty industry then researched and confirmed its successful treatment for all skin types from all nationalities and all pigmentation. Now one of the most popular and results driven depigmentation peels used across the globe, Cosmelan is the first and only choice for reducing stubborn pigmentation.
The Cosmelan peel is broken down into 4 phases, as detailed above. The first phase of the program is the professional peel which removes the majority of superficial pigmentation, the pigment we can see now and initial results are usually seen between that 2-3 week mark. Reduction is quite extraordinary with a clearer complexion and skin texture to match!
We then move into phase 2 which is using the Cosmelan 2 home depigmenation cream. This cream helps to further reduce pigmentation as it comes to the surface but more importantly Cosmelan 2 assist in regulating the pigment cells which are overproducing pigment in the first place.
There is some downtime with the Cosmelan treatment program. You may have redness, swelling, heat and be flakey or itchy in the initial 3-7 days and for a few weeks post treatment a little dry and flakey as your skin becomes accustom to Cosmelan 2 but the results achieved will be so worth it!
We are realists and always say this is a reduction treatment. Our before and afters are great examples of our real results, with no filters or touch-ups and are quite phenomenal with what can be achieved. Please take into account though, if you do not use your prescribed home care, forget to apply regular sunscreen or expose your skin regularly to the sun, this treatment is not suitable for you as results will be limited..
