The No. 1 worldwide pigment treatment.

Do you suffer from pigment spots? Striking pigment spots can be annoying. Especially if the pigment is present in places that are visible every day and where you are reminded of it when looking in the mirror or when taking pictures. After a treatment with Cosmelan you can get rid of your annoying pigment spots after a month!

  • Cosmelan is used worldwide by skin therapists and dermatologists and is regarded as the gold standard in the treatment of pigment.

  • Cosmelan is one of the most powerful treatments against pigmentation at the moment. Cosmelan can be chosen based on the indication and the nature of the pigment.

  • The Cosmelan contains the active ingredient Amelan. This ensures that not only the superficial pigment flakes off, but also that the deeper pigment is encapsulated and also prevents the production of melanin. This suppresses the arrival of new pigment.

  • Cosmelan is suitable for all skin types.


How does it work?

The Cosmelan treatment consists of 2 parts; the first part is applied in practice. The second part is a home treatment with products. Cosmelan 1 is a mask that is applied in practice. Cosmelan 2 is a cream that you should use at home to support the treatment. Both products contain ingredients that work on the different stages of pigment. The ingredient Amalan forms the basis of the Cosmelan mask and has a direct effect on the subcutaneous process that forms pigment (melanin). It inhibits tyrosinase (a basic enzyme in the melanin formation process). In addition to the Cosmelan 2 cream, one should also use a soothing cream and an SPF 130+.

Before treatment can be started, an intake interview is required to diagnose the pigmentation problem. You will receive advice on how the treatment works, what to expect and how to use the products at home.

The treatment

On the day of the treatment, the Cosmelan mask will be applied to you. It lays on your skin like a mask. This mask should be left on for 12 hours. Please take this into account when scheduling your appointment! Make sure you can come by car or be brought by a loved one so that you don't have to spend too long on the street with the mask. At SkinsClinique you can easily park in front of the door.

After 12 hours, the mask may be removed with damp washcloths. We also advise you on aftercare in the period after the treatment.

Cosmelan is a very effective treatment with good results. It is also experienced as a spicy treatment. Due to the active ingredients such as fruit acids and vitamins A and C, the skin will renew itself, which can cause redness, a pulling sensation on the skin and flaking. These are side effects and desired responses. You will notice most of this in the first 4 to 8 weeks. After this, the skin becomes calm and gets used to the substances. In addition, it is important to use a good day care with UV protection every day to properly protect the new skin.

Skins - Advice

  • After the treatment you should not shower for 12 hours.

  • Avoid exposure to heat (shower, kitchen, oven) for the first 48 hours.

  • Preferably no make-up for the first 48 hours.

  • Leave molting and any scabs alone. It is absolutely not beneficial if you sit down to the skins. There is a risk of scarring and hyperpigmentation.
