If you have melasma, you know how difficult it is to treat. We are now offering the Cosmelan mask, which produces dramatic results for treatment of melasma, dark spots caused by sun damage, or dark spots from hyper-pigmentation.
How does it work?
The mask works by blocking the enzyme involved in the melanin formation process. The treatment consists of one office treatment where the initial mask is applied. The mask remains on the skin from 5 to 10 hours, depending on your skin type and needs. Because the mask stays on so long, you will need to plan to be at home the day of treatment. You will also receive an at-home product kit and continue applications as directed.
During the first seven days of the treatment, the skin will redden and some swelling will occur. Flaking of the skin typically occurs between the second and third day of treatment. Just one week after starting the treatment, a noticeable and significant improvement of the skin may be seen.
At-home product application will continue for about four months from the initial office treatment. A follow-up will also be scheduled four weeks from this initial treatment to note your progress.
Obviously compliance is a huge factor in the success of this treatment, so be committed! The results are worth it!
