Cosmelan

LIGHTEN UP

Cosmelan is a cosmetic lightening method used against blemishes that effect people with melasma and other forms of skin pigmentation.

What are the benefits?

Cosmelan reduces and eliminates acquired skin blemishes for certain types of skin pigmentation that don’t respond to more traditional treatments, increasing skin luminosity and equalizing skin tone. This two-step prescription process actually communicates with your cells, bringing discolored pigmentation up to the surface to increase cell turnover, and then goes even deeper to inhibit discolored pigmentation.

How does it work?

Cosmelan inhibits the melanogenesis process, paralyzing melanin production for a long period of time during which corneum stratum flaking plus the action of the macrophagic cells taking the melanin deposits with them. Inhibition of the tyrosinase is only activated during treatment application. When finished, the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is solar stimulus. Due to this, application of topical depigmentants must be reiterative to obtain results.

SkinLab distills the active ingredients at a local compounding pharmacy to ensure you are getting the highest strength treatment possible. Don’t be fooled by impersonators claiming they offer prescription-strength Cosmelan when it’s not.
