Frequently Asked Questions

Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Regardless of skin colour, they are a significant issue because of their unattractive appearance and negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting quality of life.
Skin hyperpigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, and is a consequence of uncontrolled, localised overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, causing irregular skin coloration and dark spots.
Melasma Due to hormonal changes or contraceptive treatments. Located on: cheeks, upper lip, forehead and chin. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) After inflammatory conditions: acne, depilation, aggressive treatments, etc. Higher risk in dark skins. Located on: face and body Solar and senile lentigo Due to occasional or cumulative sun overexposure, in particular with age (photoaging) in the areas with a greater sun exposure. Located on: face, back of the hands, décolletage. Ephelides (freckles) Characteristic of clear skin and with a strong genetic component. Located on: face and body.
cosmelan® is a depigmenting method that removes spots fully and prevents their reappearance for a short-term outcome, while being able to maintain hyperpigmentations under control for a longlasting outcome. The cosmelan® method consists of 4-phases which are necessary to achieve the target outcome. Intense depigmentation in cabin in phase 1 and treatment for home use in phases 2, 3 and 4. Efficacy studies support its success in all types of skin, hyperpigmentations and ethnicities.
cosmelan® can be used at any time of the year, though it is advisable to do it at times when sun exposure is not so intense or prolonged, such as the winter and autumn. In case you live in a hot region or apply the treatment in the summer, you must take greater care and use a very high sunscreen, such as melan 130+ pigment control and avoid completely very intense and prolonged sun exposure.
Before any treatments commence a full and thorough consultation is performed by your Simply Skin practitioner.
This will enable us to assess your skin issues and check if there are any contra-indications which could potentially hinder treatment.
The most significant change takes place a few weeks after applying the mask in cabin, it improves skin texture and spots decrease noticeably. This can give a misleading feeling of success. During this period melanin has been removed from the outermost skin layers, and therefore we see the spot much more faded and the skin smoother and softer, but the origin of the problem has not been controlled yet. The melanocyte, a cell where melanin is produced, is still uncontrolled and continues to produce pigment (melanin) in excess. To re-educate the melanocyte and control this overproduction, it is important to continue a home treatment with regulating action, so that the cell returns to a normal active state and therefore prevent spots from reappearing.
The cosmelan® method consists of four phases which are necessary to achieve the target result. Intensive depigmentation in phase 1 and treatment for home use in phases 2, 3 and 4. The total duration of treatment is about 6 months, that can change based on the severity of the case.
If you do not follow the home regimen, you are interrupting the treatment and will therefore not obtain the expected results. Not applying cosmelan 2 depigmenting cream with regulating action involves not regulating the melanocyte and, therefore, a persistent uncontrolled, excessive production of melanin. The spot will reappear as the skin layers are renewed, as melanin migrates to the surface making the spot increasingly evident. Not using photoprotection, melan 130+ pigment control, involves a very high risk that the spot returns, as skin is more sensitive and receptive to external aggressions during the treatment.
During at least the first three months of the method, it is not recommended to use any other type of minimally invasive treatment that can cause a skin lesion, as well as peels, microneedling, exfoliations, etc., as it can even cause repigmentation. It is advisable to use soothing and regenerating treatments both in cabin and at home in case it is needed. In the last months where we reduce the application guidelines of cosmelan 2 only to the night, we can combine it with treatments that help prolong the results, such as melan tran3x concentrate and melan tran3x gel-cream.
As it is not an invasive treatment, it does not make you unable to fulfil your activities of daily living normally. Caution must be exerted when fulfilling some type of activities during the first days, a skin adaptation period after the cabin treatment. For instance, it is advisable to avoid bathing in swimming pools, prolonged sun exposure and activities that involve excessive sweating.
After an adequate professional treatment, excess pigmentation can be removed visibly. However, it is a dynamic process, where the imbalance forming them can cause their recurrence. Therefore, even if the spots are not seen, it is essential to apply a daily regulatory depigmentation treatment and photoprotection throughout the year to prevent repigmentation.
In case you are under the effect of any of the triggering factors for the appearance of spots (contraceptives, pregnancy, summer season, post-depilation, post-acne, post-peel, under photosensitising treatment, etc.), a daily treatment routine is essential, combining a depigmentation treatment, such as melan tran3x, with a high photoprotector such as melan 130+ pigment control.
