Cosmelan® Depigmentation Treatment Can Treat Skin DIscoloration Like Lucy Liu’s.


If you look closely at photos of Lucy Liu, you may be surprised to see that she actually has a bunch of little brown spots sprinkled over her lovely face. You may not have noticed this before due to photoshopping or to the fact that her features are so stunning.

While her spots can be covered with the help of retouching, you may be bothered by uneven skin tone due to brown spots, skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation. According to an Austrian study, when photos of women were altered to enhance uneven skin tone, the same women were judged as older and less attractive than when they had more wrinkles! So, if you’ve got brown spots, people may be judging you as older than you actually are.

No worries though – Our office has a great solution if you’re concerned about skin discoloration (melasma). We offer Cosmelan® Depigmentation treatment which can improve skin blemishes very safely. It works very well for:

  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Blotchy Skin
  • Brown Spots

Cosmelan® Depigmentation eliminates melanin patches using a dynamic process that we can adapt to the needs of each of our patients.

Advantages of Cosmelan® Depigmentation for Skin Discoloration
We recommend Cosmelan® Depigmentation because it:

  •     is fast and quick acting
  • is helpful for all types of melasma
  • is effective for a variety of skin types
  • rejuvenates the skin
  • does not contain TCA
  • has a light peeling effect
  • has a high safety margin
  • can be used all year around
  • can be beneficial for patients with acne

The disappearance of the blemishes improves by 95% in 99% of the cases. A week after the first Cosmelan® Depigmentation treatment, our patients notice a significant improvement of their skin. They note an improvement of the treated area and the appearance of rejuvenated skin. By the end of the Cosmelan® Depigmentation treatment, the blemishes are almost completely invisible.

The Two-Step Process Improves Skin Appearance
The process begins by cleansing the skin to remove any oils and dead cells. A facial mask, (Cosmelan® 1) is then applied. The time required for the cream to act completely will vary based on the severity of the discoloration and the patient’s skin type. The day after this treatment, skin will be slightly red with some flaking and peeling.
The second step in the treatment is the daily use of Cosmelan® 2 home maintenance cream. The cream should be applied daily to maintain the lightening achieved with the Cosmelan® 1 and to keep skin clear and smooth.

If you’re unhappy with your skin because of blemishes due to excessive pigmentation, years of sun exposure or imperfections caused by melanin, it is now possible to greatly improve your skin’s appearance and bring back its luminosity.
