What Is Cosmelan & Dermamelan?Cosmelan & Dermamelan treatment is one of the most effective methods in the treatment of pregnancy skin spots called melasma-chloasma, age spots, and spots caused by sun exposure on sensitive skin. It can also be used in the treatment of skin spots caused by other reasons.
Cosmelan & Dermamelan is an effective enzymatic peeling method that suppresses pigmentation by reducing the amount of melanin in the skin. It works by inhibiting the mechanism that triggers the formation of spots on the skin. Its main effect is the inhibition of an enzyme called tyrosinase, which plays an active role in the mechanism that causes the skin color to darken in certain areas. As a result of the suppression of this enzyme, the formation of melanin in the skin decreases, the darkened parts of the skin are lightened, and the effective treatment of the resulting spots is achieved.
How Is Cosmelan & Dermamelan Carried Out?Before starting the spot treatment, a skin consultation is carried out during which it is assessed whether a similar treatment, chemical peeling, dermabrasion, or laser applications have previously been applied.
Cosmelan & Dermamelan treatment is a single package consisting of two stages. The first 3 months of this 6-month treatment is the therapy part, and the second 3 months is the suppression part.
In the first stage, a mask is applied and the person is kept under observation for half an hour in case of a potential hypersensitivity reaction. The person may then leave the clinic with the mask on. The mask remains on the skin for 8 to 12 hours, depending on the skin type. At the end of the time period determined by the doctor, the mask is removed by washing the area with water.
