Hyperpigmentation is a common problem and has several causes. Some of these causes are: disturbed hormone balance, skin aging, pregnancy, use of the pill, menopause and sunbathing without using sun protection (SPF).
I'll be happy to explain how it works.
Pigment in the skin
A melanocyte is a particular type of skin cell (pigment cell) that produces and releases melanosomes to the keratinocytes. In the basal cell layer, there is about 1 melanocyte for every 10 keratinocytes. Our skin color is primarily determined by the size and number of pigment granules found in the basal cell layer of the epidermis. The type of pigment eumelanin (black or brown pigment) or pheomelanin (red or yellow pigment) also has an influence. People with dark skin do not have more melanocytes than people with light skin, but the pigment granules are larger and more pigment is given off. The production of pigment increases after irradiation with ultra violet light.
Cosmelan 1 (the mask) and Cosmelan 2 (the cream) ingredients act on the different stages of pigment and work in synergy. The ingredients are of plant and chemical origin. Amalan forms the basis of the Cosmelan mask and has a direct effect on the subcutaneous process that forms pigment (melanin). It inhibits tyrosinase (a basic enzyme in the melanin formation process). In addition, the Cosmelan mask contains the following ingredients: kojic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid, arbutin, titanium dioxin and retinyl palmitate (vitamin A type), all of which block the enzyme tyrosinase. The products are perfume-free.
You will be advised on how the treatment works, what to expect and how to use the products at home.
Preparation for the Cosmelan treatment
10 days before the treatment I prepare your skin for the treatment with a peel. Or if you have had peels before it is not necessary.
