How Does Cosmelan Work?
The procedure works by exfoliating your skin and producing a new one by peeling off the damaged skin. A kit is used in this process which includes four products. These products include a degreasing solution, Cosmelan cream, a Cosmelan mask, & a Vitamin K cream.
Water & acetone is included in the degreasing agent. Your skin is cleansed with the use of this agent. Its purpose is to remove excess oils from your skin so that mask can work well.
In the second step, there is a requirement to apply the Cosmelan mask on your skin. This mask is a strong topical cream that functions to decrease hyperpigmentation. You will be sent back to your home after applying the mask with the instructions of removing it. As an estimate, you need to wear this mask for about 4-8 hours.
Removing the Mask
After that, you will remove your mask by following the instructions of your doctor. Water and a gentle cleanser will be used to remove the mask. After the removal of the mask, Hydra Vital Factor K Cream (included in Kit) will be applied to the targeted area. This cream will assist in healing your skin and will keep it moisturized.
Cosmelan 2 and Hydra Vital Factor K Cream
After that, you need to apply Hydra Vital Factor K cream and Cosmelan 2 cream on a daily basis. Your doctor will instruct you regarding their usage. Also, the use of sunscreen is recommended to keep your skin safe from ultraviolet rays of the sun.
When you get an initial session in which the Cosmelan mask is applied, you may feel skin irritation. Also, the Cosmelan 2 cream may cause skin dryness and flaking of the skin. Therefore, you may apply the Hydra Vital Factor K Cream after a few hours of the application of Cosmelan to reduce dryness. Normally, this condition settles down after 2 weeks.
You may observe results after a few days of the treatment. The final results can be observed after 3-6 weeks. If you stop the use of Cosmelan 2 cream before the time prescribed by your doctor, you may get hyperpigmentation again. It is necessary to follow the instructions of your doctor.
