Cosmelan products are designed by Mesoestetic, a company with a vast selection of skin products for a variety of treatments.
The Cosmelan product line is devoted solely to the treatment of hyperpigmentation. It contains a series of products that can be used together to create a powerful hyperpigmentation-fighting regimen, eliminating current pigmentation spots and treating the skin to prevent the formation of new ones. It’s versatile, can be used on almost any skin type, and it’s especially effective with hyperpigmentation as a result of persistent melasma which is often related to hormonal changes and stubborn genetic predispositions.
These products make great treatments on their own, but they may be even more powerful in achieving the desired outcomes for your skin when combined with other treatment modalities such as IPL and Vibradermabrasion available at Brandish Clinic.
Cosmelan 1 is the first Cosmelan product applied in the Cosmelan system to treat stubborn melasma. This product is applied as a mask at an in-office appointment with your medical provider, and as it settles in, its special formula (consisting of Azelaic Acid, Kojic Acid, Phytic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, and more) causes the skin to peel over the following days. At Brandish Clinic, we utilize cutting-edge vibradermabrasion prior to the application of Cosmelan 1, to ensure optimal absorption of the mask into the skin. As the skin begins to peel over the proceeding day and beyond, the patches of built up melanin in the melasma spots are incrementally broken up and removed, contributing to the fading of these patches.
Cosmelan 2 cream is used after the in-office appointment as a topical, at-home treatment to fight melasma patches that have developed over a long period of time. This product is formulated with a combination of active ingredients to continue the breakdown of melanin in melasma patches(such as Salicylic Acid, Kojic Acid, Azelaic Acid). Eventually the melasma patches can continue to fade over time. In addition, this cream also helps prevent future overproduction of melanin pigmentation by the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells in the skin), which helps continually maintain your beautiful skin tone. This product is usually used with the Cosmelan Hydro Factor K cream to help renew and heal the skin.
Hydro Factor K is a nourishing skin cream used in conjunction with the ongoing at-home skin care routine with Cosmelan 2 cream. Cosmelan 1 and 2 work powerfully to break down and prevent hyperpigmentation from melasma, and although they are designed to achieve this effect in the most gentle way possible, the skin will still require rehydration and nourishment for maximum benefits. This is where hydro factor K comes in. This product can be used daily with Cosmelan 2 to help rehydrate the skin, and is formulated for all skin types – even acne-prone skin! It does so by using ingredients like Hydroviton, Amniotic Fluid, and Silicone Oil, which forms a protective barrier that helps the skin retain moisture and while stimulating the skin to heal. Using hydro factor K can allow you to reap the benefits of the Cosmelan peel system while still maintaining the integrity, elasticity, and overall protective health of your skin.
