Summer’s over and, for those who suffer from hyperpigmentation, despair can settle in – not just knowing that winter is coming but also that their skin is showing the blemishes and uneven skin tone extended sun exposure can produce.

Anyone concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused by sun, pregnancy or acne can benefit. Melasma can present itself as bilateral patches of uneven skin tone on cheeks, forehead and upper lip, whilst acne scars are often brown marks on the skin. 

The good news is thanks to the years of research and the clever scientists at Mesoestetic, we can help you achieve up to 95% reduction in pigmentation and finally have an even complexion without the use of lasers or even foundation. Cosmelan fades the appearance of existing and stubborn pigmentation whilst preventing the formation of future pigmentation production.


How does Cosmelan work? 

This safe and non-invasive procedure treats the source of pigment formation and delivers you a brighter, clearer and more clarified luminous complexion. The Cosmelan treatment works by decreasing the skin’s melanin production by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase. Inhibition of the tyrosinase is only activated during treatment application; when finished, the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure.  Because of this, proper use of home care products is a must, as is wearing SPF and staying out of the sun (but you knew that).


What can I expect?

An in-clinic mask is applied at our clinic – this remains on your face for eight hours (the treatment itself only takes around 20-30 minutes). The mask is washed off at home, after which you may expect up to 7 days of light to heavy peeling, redness, sensitivity and mild swelling. One client who was unhappy with her pregnancy-hormone induced hyperpigmentation wrote a full account of the procedure if you want to know more.

After the initial week, skin appears luminous, revived, fresh and smooth.The Cosmelan pack includes take home products to assist in the skin’s healing phase and prevent pigment from returning. Most clients see a dramatic reduction in just one session and to ensure long-lasting results, home care products are recommended.

Glenrose Beauty Gallery is currently offering Cosmelan depigmentation treatment for $1200, including three free light therapies and a home-care pack.
