Frequently Ask Questions

Cosmelan Depigmentation is suited to skins that suffer from pigmentation, sun damage and more specifically Melasma. The cosmelan procedure will improve the appearance of:

Pigmentation and uneven tones


Lack-lustre dull skin

Sun damage

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

The treatment is virtually pain free. The patient will only feel some mild to moderate discomfort post treatment with peeling and dryness in certain areas.

The Cosmelan Depigmentation Procedure is an intensive resurfacing treatment that provides up to 10-12 days of downtime. Your skin will be red, swollen and warm for the first 3 days post treatment and then peeling will start. Peeling and dryness can be expected for up to 7-10 days. Sun exposure is to be avoided throughout the downtime with an SPF to protect your skin and your results. All post care products are included in your treatment price which will help speed up the healing phase.

Side effects with Cosmelan treatments are rare but easily managed. Some skins may feel a little red following removal of the in-clinic mask. This may be accompanied by some minor dryness and flaking. Any tightness may be easily relieved by applying a nurturing moisturiser such as Hydra-Vital Factor K – which is supplied in your post treatment homecare pack.

It is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure following a Cosmelan treatment and to wear a broad spectrum SPF30 every day before, during and following treatment.

Results being seen after one treatment of Cosmelan is to be expected. This can be in as little as 2 weeks post treatment or may even be 4-8 weeks post treatment depending on skin condition and concerns. Maintenance of pigmentation will always be needed due to external and internal factors.

As successful as our results are with our Cosmelan procedure, Melasma is a form of hormonal pigmentation which unfortunately is out of our control. We would never guarantee that your melasma will be gone forever. We tackle the pigmentation from all angles by ensuring the corrective skincare is always being used, clinical maintenance treatments are followed whilst also referring to a naturopath to treat internally.

The Cosmelan treatment is performed as a once off treatment. Maintenance treatments may be recommended in your initial skin consultation.

In your complete Cosmelan Procedure Package, you are required to use the Cosmelan products (this is a non-negotiable) and to follow the treatment and post care guidelines strictly given by your clinician. You will be given a Cosmelan Kit on the day of your procedure which includes the following: Hydra Milk Cleanser, Hydra Tonic, Cosmelan Maintenance 2 Cream, Anti-Stress Mask, Hydra Vital K Cream & Melan Recovery. You will also have 1x LED Light Therapy session included along with all of your follow up skin review appointments and a post treatment hydrating facial treatment prescribed by your clinician.
