Successfully treating these skin imperfections is possible, lightening the visible discolorations and inhibiting the cycle which causes pigment to surface later can be achieved with Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment.
Cosmelan® treatment consists of two phases. It is imperative that both be used according to direction to achieve complete success:
Phase 1 – For professional use only. Cosmelan® 1 Mask is applied in office and left on the skin for a period of time which is determined by your GloAesthetics professional according to skin colour and type. The mask is removed with cleansing milk and followed by an application of Hydravital Factor K Cream.
Phase 2 – At home maintenance.Cosmelan® 2 is applied at home according to the recommended protocol of your GloAesthetics professional and is followed daily with Hydravital Factor K Cream and Sunscreen.
