Melasma and Pigment Treatment
An uneven skin tone, called hyperpigmentation, is irregular darkening of the skin. The cause is from the overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color. Changes hormones, aging and too much sun exposure are typically the causes of hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is shown on the face, body, and hands as:
Sunspots such as lentigines (flat brown spots), keratosis (often raised, sometimes rough, waxy spots), freckles
Facial spider veins (broken blood vessels), cherry angiomas and hemangiomas (raised and flat red spots).
At Skintology Health and Wellness Centre we have the option of laser and topical treatments to help treat your pigment issues.
Cosmelan® is a depigmenting method that has an intensive corrective action on skin hyperpigmentation while simultaneously regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting and controlling the appearance of new dark spots. It has a dual corrective and controlling action, achieving short- and long-term results by keeping hyperpigmentation under control.
The method consists of a clinic stage and a home routine. Cosmelan 2 cream forms part of a home routine and serves to both maintain the results obtained in the salon and prevent the appearance of new spots. Complemented with hydra-vital factor K and moisturizing sun protection SPF50+, the care and the prevention of spots is solved in a unique and integral way.
Dermamelan has similar active ingredients to Cosmelan but at 25% higher concentration. Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment’s principal action is the elimination of melanin patches on the face – melasma, also called chloasma if the pigmentation occurs with pregnancy. Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment involves a very versatile, dynamic process which is easily adapted to the needs of each individual patient.
Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment action mechanism is based on the inhibition of tyrosinase, a basic enzyme in the melanin formation process. Several of the substances present in the Dermamelan formula act by blocking this enzyme, or even by inverting the metabolic process of the transformation chain.
