Before and After Photos


Cosmelan is an effective treatment helping to eliminate melanin patches on the face from melasma, sun-damaged spots, age spots, and acne. Cosmelan works by affecting the skin’s melanin (color-producing pigment) and helping brown spots obtain a clearing or blending effect to the skin around it.


The Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment offers a series of major advantages and benefits compared with other types of depigmentation products found in the market:

  • Very efficient in all types of melasma and sun damage
  • Rapid and easy skin lightening action
  • Compatible with ALL skin types
  • Light peeling effect
  • Rejuvenation and luminosity of the skin including shrinking of the pores
  • Treatment can start and be used all year round with maintenance of Cosmelan 2
  • Very effective for acne patients with residual acne scarring
  • No Hydroquinone, this treatment is based on Azelic acid
  • No TCA
  • Safe and effective


In most cases, the disappearance of the blemishes improves tremendously. ONE WEEK after starting the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment, a noticeable significant improvement of the skin is observed. The reduction of the treated blemish is detected and the appearance of new luminous and rejuvenated skin is present. At the end of the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment, the blemishes start to disappear.

The results appear to be very long-lasting as long as strict sun avoidance adheres or the acne is well controlled. The Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment initiated at the medical office must be continued at home, on a daily basis, according to the guidelines indicated. The treatment must not be interrupted under any circumstances, during the whole time prescribed. 

It is completely forbidden to combine the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment with other depigmentation treatments, as the appearance of undesired effects cannot be guaranteed. Follow-up visits are recommended 15 days after the beginning of treatment, then on a monthly basis.
