The Cosmelan treatment consists of a two phased approach that is compatible with all skin types / skin colours and can be used all year round. Firstly, Cosmelan exfoliates the skin to an even skin tone by removing layers of dead skin cells that have built up over time (the peel). Secondly, Cosmelan will then inhibit the production of melanin which is responsible for creating the color/tone of your skin and is the root cause of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. This treatment reduces the skin’s natural production of melanin which creates your skin tone and dark spotty tissues. The treatment can be used not only on facial areas but also on legs, hands and abdomen.
