The Cosmelan® treatment is one of the most effective and safe treatments to eliminate discoloration and restore the balance of oily or mixed skin, giving it shine and smoothness. The Cosmelan® treatment is very popular all over the world. In Europe, this procedure has been performed for several years. The effectiveness of the therapy is so high that getting rid of discoloration occurs in less than three weeks.
Cosmelan® is a treatment aimed at reducing skin discoloration, which reduces dark spots and discoloration, resulting from excessive production of melanin or as a result of excessive exposure to solar radiation or hormonal disorders. Its revolutionary formula has been designed to achieve maximum efficiency and ensure optimal tolerance.
Cosmelan® acts on melanocytes, skin pigment cells that are found in the epidermis and are responsible for the excessive production of melanin. Cosmelan® inhibits the production of melanin, and thus reduces or brightens unsightly discoloration, discoloration or stains. The mechanism of action was based on the use of substances that retain tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in the formation of melanin. The sunstances contained in Cosmelan block the enzyme's activity or reverse metabolic changes.
Therapy depends on the individual needs of the patient, therefore the duration of therapy is determined individually.
The treatment with the use of a special Cosmelan® kit can be performed by specialized medical personnel.

The treatment process consists of two stages:
Before the planned treatment, the patient does not have to be specially prepared, the procedure is non-invasive. After the medical consultation, the procedure starts with skin preparation for the procedure. The next step is to apply the Cosmelan® mask.

After returning home, the patient removes the mask, under a stream of running water, after a certain time set by the doctor. The time the mask stays depends on the skin's phototype.
During the next few days after applying Cosmelan, the patient may feel burning, a feeling of tension, and redness appears in the area undergoing treatment. This skin reaction is natural and disappears after a few days.
