Cosmelan Dermamelan Spot Treatment

Cosmelan (Dermamelan) is a kind of peeling that is very effective in the spot treatment thanks to its peeling and suppressing enzymatic substances.

It is a cosmetic and care product that includes mask, follow-on cream and moisturizers. Cosmelan (Dermamelan) is part of the topical treatment offered by dermatologists. This treatment is used for hyperpigmentation and some other skin scarring.

 

Cosmelan is mainly used in hand, face, neck, decollate area, arms, legs or abdomen. Cosmelan uses two types of actions in order to reduce hyperpigmentation. 

It equalizes the skin tone and inhibits melanin production. Cosmelan prevents the formation of spots by reducing the amount of melanin in the skin. It is a kind of enzyme that is effective in the treatment of spots caused by melasma and sun exposure.

Dark spots on the skin are also called age spots or black spots. These are seen in the face, neck and décolleté, arms and legs or abdomen which can be red, brown or grey in color.

These spots occur due to excessive secretion of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin Although these spots differ in shade and size, the common point of all of them is that they are aesthetically uncomfortable for people.

Although make-up is done and some other methods are used to cover spots, these methods do not replace permanent solutions. 


With Cosmelan (Dermamelan), it is possible to minimize or even eliminate skin spots. Cosmelan (Dermamelan) ensures the removal of spots by peeling, just like the chemical peeling method.

Due to increased pigmentation caused by excessive exposure to the sun in summer months, these spots can last for years. Cosmelan (Dermamelan) is an effective method for skin pigmentations.

The exact reason of skin pigmentations is not known. UV lights from the sun and very strong lights directly coming from lightbulbs can stimulate the cells producing pigment on the skin or melanocytes. 

Those who have dark skin color have more active melanocytes compared to those with fair skin color. Under normal conditions, these melanocytes produce large amount of pigments. However, this production increases if triggered by an increase in produced hormone level or the light effect. 

Cosmelan is also effective for the treatment of spots caused by pregnancy, old age, and sun exposure on sensitive skin and many such effects. 

Main effect of Cosmelan is seen with the suppression of an enzyme called tyrosinase, which plays an active role in the mechanism that causes the skin color to turn darker in certain areas.

As a result of the suppression of this enzyme, melanin production in the skin decreases and the color of darkened parts of the skin becomes lighter and effective treatment is ensured for the stops caused by these factors.
