First impressions matter and when you are dealing with various skin issues on your face, it can affect your self-esteem and confidence. Dark spots and hyperpigmentation give your skin an unhealthy appearance. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we often recommend our Cosmelan depigmentation treatment for men and women in San Diego, Encinitas, La Mesa, El Cajon, and surrounding areas of California, who have dark patches on their skin.


What is Cosmelan Depigmentation?

At our clinic, we use Cosmelan MD – the top level of Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment which allows us to individually customize the levels of lightening ingredients best suited to your needs. Cosmelan MD is designed to provide an initial quick and ongoing control program that is ideal for skin lightening, melasma (pregnancy mask), age spots, sun spots, and other pigmentation issues.

The Cosmelan depigmentation treatment is the answer to dark spots and mottled pigmentation, especially on the face. These discolorations are one of the greatest aesthetic concerns facing men and women today. Instead of covering your face with heavy make-up or foundation, return your skin to its natural tone. Developed in Spain, Cosmelan de-pigmentation begins with a “leave on mask” which results in a skin peel. Following the peel, you will continue with easy-to-follow home care products. 

Cosmelan is a topical option for melasma, acne, and other pigment problems. Cosmelan has a direct suppression effect on the formation of pigment (melanin). 

Cosmelan is very effective on ethnic skin. Only by affecting the skin’s melanin (color-producing pigment) formation can a person suffering from brown spots obtain a clearing or blending of their skin. The process is simple.

What are the Benefits of Cosmelan Depigmentation?

Cosmelan Depigmentation in La Jolla and San Diego can improve your skin tone in a safe, non-invasive manner. The process provides the following benefits compared with other types of treatments.

  • It’s very effective for all types of melasma.
  • The procedure is rapid and easy.
  • The product is compatible with all skin types.
  • The light peeling effect rejuvenates and increases the luminosity of the skin.
  • Treatments can start and be used all year round.
  • As a bonus, it’s also effective for acne patients.

The process involves a versatile program easily adapted to the needs of each patient and is highly effective on Hispanic skin.


Who are the Best Candidates for Cosmelan Depigmentation?

The La Jolla and San Diego Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment is versatile and effective on many of our patients. You are not limited to the use of Cosmelan because of skin type or time of year. Cosmelan is effective for both men and women who suffer from discoloration caused by excess pigment on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, or neck.

It is important to note that Cosmelan is not suitable for any pregnant or nursing woman, who has been using Accutane for the past 6 months. During your consultation, we will review your medical history so we can determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting a Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment is to schedule a consultation. We offer free consultation sessions to call our clients. During the session, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and problem areas with the doctor. It is also a good time to ask questions and share any concerns or reservations you have about the treatment. We want to ensure you make the right decision by being fully informed. Our doctor will also assess your skin and the areas you wish to work on, to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. 


What to Expect on the Day of Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment

On the day of your treatment, after filling out the paperwork, we will take you into our treatment room to begin the Cosmelan Depigmentation. It is a 3-step process, that is implemented in our clinic, as well as at home. 

Step 1: The specially formulated pigment-reduction activating mask (Cosmelan I Mask) is applied to the skin and left on for a predetermined number of hours. This is in great part dependent upon the amount of pigmentation as well as your skin sensitivity levels  This prolonged “wearing” of the mask is a key component in stimulating the fastest response. We will apply the Cosmelan I Mask at the office.

Step 2: Once the development and action time is complete, you may wash the mask off. The intensive action ingredients in the new Cosmelan MD include hydroquinone and retinoic acid. Hydroquinone will staunch the pigmentation cycle while retinoic acid encourages quick cell turnover. This helps you to more quickly shed brown patches and discoloration. The combined ingredients are an excellent combination that has been shown to provide a superior removal of old pigment and suppression of new pigment.

Step 3: Your At-Home Cosmelan Program will consist of active-ingredient products you will use consistently to further improve pigmentation problems and prevent excess pigment formation. Your maintenance cream, Cosmelan II, will be used on an ongoing basis. This special pigment control cream contains ingredients such as Kojic Acid, Phytic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, and a protective agent, Titanium Dioxide.

Cosmelan Depigmentation Recovery

Most of our patients achieve desirable results with one application of the peel. Occasionally you will need to repeat the process. You will need to continue with the maintenance program to prevent the darkening of the pigment. The skin becomes reddened, and you will experience a light peeling effect. You will be instructed to use your moisturizer and a daily sunblock SPF 30 or greater. During any periods of prolonged sun exposure, you will be instructed to wear a hat and your sunblock.
