Skin ageing caused by systematic sun exposure, facial blemishes due to excessive pigmentation and, in general, imperfections caused by melanin, are more and more common today. ‘Dark blemishes’, especially on hands and face are one of the greatest aesthetic concerns of men and women.
Cosmelan and Dermalan de-pigmentation treatments are effective ways of improving the appearance of dark hyper-pigmentation patches and brown skin blemishes. Cosmelan works in a similar way to Dermalan; however Cosmalan is the milder treatment of the two and is used for less severe pigmentation or for a general rejuvenating effect.
What does treatment involve?
The initial treatment with Cosmelan or Dermalan is done in the clinic, which involves evaluation of the skin. After cleansing the skin the Cosmelan or Dermalan mask is applied and left on for around 4-8 hours depending on skin type. Following application, you can go home with the mask on. The second stage is the home maintenance programme, for which full instructions will be given.
What skin conditions can be treated with Cosmelan and Dermalan?
• Areas of aged skin
• Facial blemishes from excessive pigmentation
• Dark skin sports
• Acne scars
Cosmelan and Dermalan are suitable for most skin types and for both men and women.
There is a type of skin condition in which people get to have lightening of the skin, or loss of pigment as a result of several local and systemic conditions. If you think this is your problem then you are suffering from Depigmentation. This loss of pigment can be temporary as well as permanent.
If we look at the causes of such a skin condition, then perhaps it will become easier of us to as to choose the right type of Depigmentation treatment. For example, in case of pregnant women, melasma due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, menopause or intake of oral contraceptive pill are the main causes.
As a woman, if you happen to have irregular patches of hyperpigmentation on the face then you are actualy suffering from Melasma. Basically, it is an outcome of female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone, which stimulate pigment that produce cells which leads to the production of excess melanin when the skin is exposed to the sun.
People can get into substantial stress if anything really goes wrong with the skin such as the Pigmentation on face. This type of a problem can emerge as we get older because the skin loses its firmness. When the skin is scratched, wrong type of chemical peels are applied and too much exposure to sunlight, the end result is of course pigmentation lesions.
It must be understood that any kind of skin problem has different types. Similarly, there are certain pigmentation types that are a person looking for treatment must e familiar with. Perhaps the very common type of all that are known is the pigmentation on hands in which the skin becomes spotted with age spots, freckles and liver spots.
