How Does Cosmelan MD Work?

Cosmelan MD is the most popular hyperpigmentation treatment in the world because it works so well, and this success is due to its unique mechanism that is both corrective and regulatory. This means Cosmelan MD not only eliminates pigmented spots (corrective), and that it also prevents spots from recurring by regulating overproduction of pigments within the skin (regulatory). Thanks to Cosmelan MD, Dr. Rednam’s patients enjoy rapid elimination of dark spots and continued improvements in skin discoloration over the long Trusetd Source Checkbox Trusted Source Cosmelan Line Mesoestetic Go to Source term.

Your Cosmelan MD Treatment: What to Expect

The key to preparing for your Cosmelan MD treatment is to attend a consultation at Dr. Rednam’s practice. Here, you will be able to discuss your skin discoloration concerns with Dr. Rednam and decide whether Cosmelan MD is the right chemical peel treatment for you.

Cosmelan MD depigmentation treatment is a two-part chemical peel, and the first phase of treatment is performed by one of Dr. Rednam’s team experts. Cosmelan MD treatment begins with a thorough cleanse and the application of a mud-like mask. You will leave our office wearing the mask, and will be instructed to leave it on your skin for 8-12 hours. After this, you can wash the mask off with a gentle cleanser.

Immediately after you remove the mask from your skin, you will apply Mesoestetic Hydra-vital factor K cream to your skin.

The rest of your Cosmelan MD depigment treatment will take place at home. For the first week following your mask, you will apply Cosmelan 2 cream three times per day. During the second week, you will apply the cream twice daily, and the following week you will apply the Cosmelan 2 cream once a day. Depending on your severity this may be up to a three month process.
