The latest, most results driven depigmentation peel of all time, Cosmelan® by Mesoestetic is the only peel in the world that can guarantee complete removal.
Quick, easy and painfree, in just one appointment your pigmentation, melasma and age spots can be erased forever.
Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Regardless of skin colour, they are a significant issue because of their unattractive appearance and negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting quality of life.
Skin hyper pigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, and is a consequence of uncontrolled, localised overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, causing irregular skin coloration and dark spots.
Watch our informative video below to see how and why we are affected by pigmentation and how the worlds No.1 De-Pigmentation Removal Method works.
Control of Hyperpigmentation
What causes hyperpigmentation?
Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, and a consequence of uncontrolled, localised overproduction of melanin inside the melanocyte, which causes irregular skin colouration and dark spots. Numerous external and internal factors can cause hyperpigmentation:
• Genetic Tendency
• Sun Exposure
• Hormonal Changes
• Exposure to Chemicals
• Photosensitising medication
What is Cosmelan® and who is it for?
The Cosmelan® treatment is the world’s leading professional pigmentation removal method. The treatment is suitable for all forms of hyper-pigmentation from melasma, post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, solar lentigo to ephelides (freckles) and can be used on all skin phototype’s, including any with dark or Asian skin tones.
How does Cosmelan® work?
With an intensive corrective effect that regulates overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots. It’s dual corrective and controlling action achieves both short and long-term results by keeping hyperpigmentation under control.
The Cosmelan® contains an exclusive combination of active substances with proven efficacy, which act on all phases of the hyper-pigmentation process totally eliminating existing hyper-pigmentation, preventing its reappearance and stopping the appearance of new dark spots.
What does the Cosmelan® method involve?
The treatment consists of two in-clinic appointments followed by home maintenance, which should be continued for ideally at least 9 months upto 1 year. Your initial appointment will consist of consultation, eligibilty by skin analysis and Mesoestetic Melanostop® prep peel. This must be performed 48 hours before the Cosmelan® in-clinic treatment and will prepare the skin for the treatment removing any dead skin cells, hydrating the skin and allowing the Cosmelan® to work deeper within the skin. Your second appointment will be the application of the Cosmelan® One.
The Cosmelan® One is the professional treatment mask which is applied by our skin professionals in clinic, and this should be left on at home for a period of between 8 – 12 hours depending on your Fitzpatrick type, skin type and form of hyper-pigmentation.
The Cosmelan® Two should then be used by you at home. This process is started 48 hours post the in-clinic mask (Cosmelan® One) and is recommended to be used three times daily in the first month. Twice daily in the 2nd and 3rd month and once in the evening in the 4th month. It is VITAL that you follow our pre, during and post procedure aftercare advice following your Cosmelan® peel. Not doing so can greatly affect your final results and may harm your skin.
Why is it important to use the home care provided by The Look by Louise Skin Health clinic?
The home care process of Cosmelan® Two maintenance cream is continued to allow the melanocyte to stop producing the same abnormal production of melanin and continue to not produce this by its self. If this is not followed for the recommended amount of time the hyper-pigmentation will most likely return as the melanocyte will start producing the same hyper-pigmentation. Listening to our Skin Health Professionals at The Look by Louise® is vital. By over usage of Cosmelan Two® and not continuing or following our home care protocols, side effects can start to happen. We also cannot guarantee or cover any clients who have purchased Mesoestetic® homecare products from an unauthorised retailer i.e online sites or unlicensed clinics. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of these products so cannot continue to treat you.
How quickly can results be seen?
Results can be seen in as little as two weeks but can continue to improve with the best of the result being seen between 30 and 60 days following the treatment. We recommend maintenance using Mesoestetic® Melan 130 SPF Sun Protection Tinted Moisturiser and sessions of our Dermalux® Tri Wave LED PhotoTherapy Pigmentation Protocol.
Will I experience any after effects and how long does this last?
Peeling, a little redness and irritation can be expected initially. This may last until the application of Cosmelan® 2 is reduced in the second month. Mesoestetic® Fast Skin Repair is recommended to be applied to the skin to reduce the peeling and irritation significantly. This is provided in your homecare kit.
The skin can become dry when reaching the second stage of the peel when you start to introduce Cosmelan® 2 (this is completely normal), so the Mesoestetic Hydra Vital Factor K (contained within the post peel pack) is also a great product to use alongside. It is a lightweight moisturiser that really hydrates the skin. Using these two together combined with Fast Skin Repair is guaranteed to decrease healing time, creating an overall clearer and brighter skin tone, in no time at all.
Can this treatment only be performed on the face?
No, Cosmelan® may also be used on the body and is commonly used on the back, shoulders, arms, décolletage and hands which all commonly experience forms of hyper-pigmentation.
What aftercare products should I be using following the treatment?
As part of your treatment our clinic will provide you with the correct Mesoestetic® post procedure recovery balm and SPF. We highly recommend using Mesoestetic® Fast Skin Repair and Hydra-Vital Factor K alongside your Cosmelan® 2 treatment if extra hydration is required. These products are available as a skin care pack called the Post-Peel Pack which is a must following any of our peel treatments. Using the products will reduce irritation, peeling and chances of having any adverse reactions.
Are there any aftercare products that should be avoided and is it safe for to use other products at any point during the method?
Any products containing Vitamin C or Retinols should be avoided throughout the treatment. These will be too stimulating for the skin and could cause a reaction. Any other skin brands during this time especially cosmeceutical ranges should be heavily avoided.
During the first month, the skin will be particularly sensitised and we would therefore only recommend use of the products contained in The Look by Louise Post-Peel Pack®, along side the maintenance cream. After the first month however, when the skin is no longer irritated, we also recommend introducing products from the Mesoestetic® W+ whitening range to boost results.
Can the treatment be combined with any other treatments?
During the Cosmelan® treatment no other invasive skin procedures should be performed. We highly recommend sessions of Dermalux® Tri Wave LED Phototherapy sessions throughout to boost results and maintain your pigmentation free appearance.
Why would this treatment be chosen over other treatments for hyperpigmentation, such as laser?
Laser is a commonly used, highly effective treatment., especially within our clinic. It is particularly effective for low and medium phototype skins (phototype 1-3) where hyper pigmentation is more visible on the skin surface. Even so, the professional must recommend a maintenance treatment to prevent the reappearance.
In higher phototypes (phototype 4-6) however, laser is less effective and the likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is higher. The Cosmelan® method is better tolerated, more efficient and involves a lower risk of recurrence with a longer-lasting result.
Which The Look by Louise clinic location is this treatment available?
Cosmelan® is available at our Skin Health Clinic located in Bolton, Lancashire.
Products from the Mesoestetic®range are available for next day home delivery or available to purchase in-clinic.
Are there any hidden costs?
There are no hidden costs with us at The Look by Louise.
Most chain skin clinics will have a basic price for the Cosmelan Peel followed by various add ons which are necessary to the treatment, resulting in hidden costs.
