Hyperpigmentation is perceived as the third most important skin problem after wrinkles and sagging. Skin pigmentation treatments, notably cosmelan ® and dermamelan ® , are world-renowned for their effectiveness. However, it’s not only the quality of the treatment that’s important, it’s also the experience and expertise of the professional administering it. The mesoestetic ® Pharma Group recently held its third in a series of Specialised Depigmentation seminars in Australia as part of a global initiative. This worldwide program is for clinics seeking a cutting-edge advantage, by becoming a mesoestetic ® Certified Specialised Depigmentation Centre. What does that mean for you? Well, the comprehensive course, which was lectured by mesoestetic ® International Trainer, Sabine Wallez, resulted in a total of 51 Specialised Depigmentation Centres certified across Australia. Therefore you can be confident that the staff members at these clinics are trained to ensure you will attain the best possible results with your procedure and for your condition. The topics covered in the course included the importance of the diagnostic component in hyperpigmentation treatments such as melasma, PIH, solar and senile lentigos and ephelides, as well as antiageing solutions and the importance of sun protection. According to Catherine Biedermann, Managing Director of Advanced Cosmeceuticals, the course was an incredible opportunity for Australian skin professionals to learn first-hand about depigmentation from Sabine Wallez and to hone their specific skills for treating hyperpigmentation. CBM cosmelan: what is it? Cosmelan is a one-time, professional skin brightening treatment developed by mesoestetic ® to help reduce the appearance of pigmentation spots and even out skin tone in a matter of weeks with minimal side effects. The clinically proven results are truly impressive, achieving up to 95 per cent improvement in the majority of cases. Treatments with the cosmelan topical solution are tailored to each individual and the results are long lasting. What to expect The cosmelan treatment consists of two phases and it is imperative that you follow the directions given by the treating professional to achieve complete success. Phase 1 – in the clinic The cosmelan 1 Mask is applied in the clinic and left on the skin for a period of time which is determined by the medical professional according to your skin colour and type. This is usually around 8 hours. Phase 2 – at home maintenance The mask is removed at home with mesoestetic ® hydra milk cleanser and followed by an application of hydra-vital factor k cream. Cosmelan 2 maintenance cream is applied at home according to the recommended protocol of the medical professional. The objective of this highly effective maintenance cream is to ensure the continued brightening of the complexion and fading of skin discolourations while restoring luminosity. After applying the cosmelan 2, follow daily with hydra-vital factor k and hydrating moisturiser with sun protection. Peeling of the treated skin begins in approximately 48-72 hours and lasts about three days; hydra-vital factor k is provided for multiple applications during the day and evening. Follow-up is in 7-10 days at which point a marked reduction in major discolouration will be evident. Pigment reduction continues with the at-home application of the cosmelan 2 product over the next six months.
