If you have been dealing with hyperpigmentation or dark spots on your skin, you may have heard about the benefits of a Cosmelan depigmentation treatment in Perth. Cosmelan can be used on the body or face to reduce the appearance of these spots or darker areas. This effective treatment works in two ways. First, it exfoliates the skin to even out skin tone. Second, it inhibits melanin production. Melanin is what gives your skin its colour. A Cosmelan treatment in Perth involves the use of four products: a degreasing agent, a Cosmelan mask, and two different creams. Together, the system can help lighten hyperpigmentation, resulting in skin that’s smoother and more evenly coloured.
Using a degreasing agent containing water and acetone, the therapist cleanses the skin before applying the mask. The degreasing agent is an essential first step because it removes oils from the skin and allows the mask to penetrate the skin’s surface.
After the degreasing agent has done its job, the therapist applies the mask to the skin. The mask is a strong topical cream that quickly reduces hyperpigmentation. Once the mask is applied, the client leaves with instructions on how to remove it four to eight hours later, depending on the severity of damage to the skin. Removing the mask is easy and requires only water and a gentle cleanser.
Vitamin K Cream and Cosmelan 2 Cream
Once the client has removed the mask, they then apply the special vitamin K cream to the treated area to moisturise the skin and help it heal. It is essential to use sunscreen before any sun exposure, as this helps prevent further sun damage. After the mask stage, the client applies the Cosmelan 2 cream and then the vitamin K cream two the three times a day. The client may use the Cosmelan 2 cream once daily indefinitely to prevent the hyperpigmentation from recurring; sunscreen should always be applied as well.
Some people experience skin redness and irritation after the initial treatment with the mask. Cosmelan 2 cream sometimes causes skin dryness or flaking. The vitamin K cream helps relieve dryness, and any skin irritation typically subsides within a couple of weeks. Clients usually see the results of their Cosmelan peel in Perth within a few days, with the result visible after three to six weeks. Continued use of this cream significantly lowers the chances of hyperpigmentation returning.
