Hyperpigmentation is not a skin condition caused by ageing alone; many factors outside our control can cause it, but there are ways to treat it, from chemical exfoliates to concealers. At Canova London, we offer the cosmelan peel as a treatment that we know works.
What is Cosmelan?
It is similar to an AHA chemical peel, the cosmelan is specifically designed to treat pigmentation problems, and the treatment can help reduce and regulate pigmentation. It works by reducing the production of Melanin, which is a common cause of hyperpigmentation.
What can Cosmelan treat?
Cosmelan addresses hyperpigmentation problems, such as Melasma, Chloasma, Age/Liver spots and scarring, so, first, let’s explain what causes pigmentation problems.
Your skin, eyes and hair colour are determined by the naturally occurring pigment called Melanin. If your body has healthy melanin production, it distributes evenly throughout the body. Many factors can affect the distribution of Melanin cells, including heat, hormones, sun exposure and skin conditions like acne or rashes, which can cause the skin to develop brown spots or uneven distributions of Melanin cells.
Cosmelan contains a cell-communicating ingredient that can regulate your body’s melanin production; ingredients tell your cells how to reduce overproduction and function more healthily. The scientific basis for Cosmelan’s inhibition is that the Kojic Acid and Phytic Acid in Cosmelan, helps heal and protect the skin.
What are the benefits of the cosmelan treatment?
These are just some of the benefits that you can get with the cosmelan peel:
- A reduction in all types of skin pigmentation, including melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Increased luminosity in your skin
- An even skin tone
- Increased collagen production
