Clinical Depigmentation Method for Melasma & Stubborn Hyperpigmentation

The cosmelan® method and dermamelan® method (30% stronger than cosmelan®; doctor-only peel) is a clinical depigmentation programme that consists of 4-phases in conjunction with Healite II LLED phototherapy which are necessary to achieve the target outcome.

  • Phase 1 (Corrective action): Intense in-clinic depigmentation to remove the deposit of melanin up to 82% with cosmelan® or 95% with dermamelan®.
  • Phase 2-4 (Regulating action): Maintenance programme with active ingredients that act directly on melanocytes to regulate the production of melanin and keep hyperpigmentation under control.

The synergistic action of this programme ensures higher depigmenting efficacy, greater comfort during treatment and lower risk of repigmentation.

Is there any downtime?

Minimal. As with every medical procedures, some swelling and bruises may occur but can be easily covered by make up after 24 hours post-procedure if needed.

How often do I need treatment?

The longevity of filler depends on its thickness, depth of placement, area injected – anywhere between 6 to 18 months.
