3) It smoothens and restores the skin’s luminosity showing healthy glowing skin.

4) Treats melasma, PIH, liver spots, and freckles.

5) It treats all skin phototypes, but it does not cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker skin.

What to Expect

Cosmelan pack 02, ACM Adelaide

Cosmelan is a two-phase (the in-clinic mask and the home care regimen) intensive topical treatment lasting approximately 6 months that combines a single clinic or salon session and at-home treatment, which is required to obtain optimum results.


Stage 1. Preparation

Four weeks before the actual Cosmelan treatment, the patient is required to follow preparation using recommended skincare products.


Stage 2. Treatment Day

The first step in the treatment program is performed in the clinic. An intense pigment reduction mask called Cosmelan 1 is applied to the face and left on for about 8 to 12 hours, depending on the prescribed hours based on a thorough skin analysis by your licensed dermal technician. It can be removed at home and then recovery product application follows for the next 72 hours.


Stage 3. In-Clinic Review and LED

Three days after the application of Cosmelan 1, in-clinic Observ Skin Analysis and photographs are performed to monitor the progression. The observation is followed by a soothing LED Light Therapy treatment which can aid in the healing process.


Stage 4. At-Home Aftercare

Six months post, depigmentation treatment continues with an at-home skincare regime. Instructions and recommendations from your licensed dermal technician will be provided.
