Pigmentation treatment with Cosmelan or Dermamelan

Hyperpigmentation. A change of color on the skin. Brown, gray or even black skin discoloration can appear quite suddenly. Or gradually just give you an unpleasant uncomfortable feeling. In any case, you want the "marks" to be less visible and no longer so distracting. This is possible. The pigment treatment with Cosmelan and Dermamelan consists of a mask and the use of professional home care products. How do we significantly reduce your pigmentation marks at Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft? We are happy to tell you.

Sometimes too much pigment (hyperpigmentation) occurs quite suddenly after pregnancy. But skin aging, use of the pill, the sun and menopause can also be a cause. Fortunately, in many cases we can really do something about it. Our dermal therapists investigate the cause of your pigmentation and work with you on a specific treatment plan.

More and more people are opting for the Dermamelan and Cosmelan treatment at Huid & Laser Kliniek Delft. With this treatment, you choose to use ingredients with a vegetable and chemical origins, such as fruit acids and vitamins A and C. This inhibits and blocks pigmentation. The results of this treatment with the mask and intensive home care become visible after 4 to 8 weeks. Our dermal therapists will tell you more about this in a free consultation.

We can reduce your pigmentation actually in two ways: in the upper layer of the skin we use the pigment laser and deeper pigmentation we reduce with the products of Cosmelan or Dermamelan. Both treatments are effective and work together towards the same result: your natural even skin.

Frequently asked questions

What does hyperpigmentation or melasma mean?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin is overproduced which leads to discolored areas on the skin. The discolorations can range from light brown to even black in color. The shape and size can also vary greatly. Melasma is simply a form of hyperpigmentation and is often hormonally related or genetically determined.

The check-ups after the actual treatment are of course included in this package price. So you know exactly where you stand.

What is the difference between the Dermamelan and Cosmelan treatment?

Dermamelan is 30% more concentrated than Cosmelan. This makes Dermamelan perfect for treating deeper pigmentation and can be used in light and dark skin types.

What can be the cause of too many pigmentation spots in me?

Too much pigmentation, also called hyperpigmentation, can have several causes. Some causes are skin aging, pregnancy, the use of birth control, magnesium deficiency but also too many sunbeds and sunbathing without sun protection (SPF) or hyperpigmentation in (acne) scars. Whatever the cause in your case, we always choose the most appropriate treatment and are transparent about the expected result.

What things should I not do after my Cosmelan or Dermamelan treatment?

The day after the treatment is a rest day for the skin. Do not use scrubs or peelings in the weeks after the treatment and avoid steam baths, saunas and swimming pools. For the best results, also do not interrupt the treatment with home care products, because the production of melanin is suppressed. Want to know exactly what you can and cannot do before, during and after a treatment? Get in touch with us.

Can you remove pigmentation marks with a Cosmelan/Dermamelan treatment?

To be honest; pigmentation marks removal we can't guarantee unfortunately. Cosmelan/Dermamelan gives the greatest chance of success compared to other therapies, such as laser therapy or chemical peels. Our Cosmelan/Dermamelan treatment gives beautiful results and with a targeted treatment you often already achieve the desired result. The pigmentation reduces significantly. And of course the trick is to stop the overproduction of pigment. So consistent protection from the sun and wearing SPF is important. The use of pigment suppressing home products from Mesoestetics or Dermaceutic is also important.

When do I choose a Cosmelan treatment, Dermamelan treatment or pigment laser?

The pigment laser can be a good treatment when your pigment is caused by the sun or skin aging. It is then limited to a single spot or small area and is on the surface of the skin. When a larger area of the face shows hyperpigmentation and the pigment is deeper, the Cosmelan or Dermamelan treatment is chosen. Also when hyperpigmentation has a hormonal cause (melasma), we choose these treatments. Consult with our skin therapist in Delft about the best treatment for you.

What products or treatments will help me when I'm done with a Cosmelan process?

A peeling with pigment inhibitors or an intense vitamin C microneedling treatment. But also home products with ingredients such as tranexamic acid, kojic acid, salicylic acid and glycolic acid. Choose products from reputable brands like Teraderm, Dermaceutic and Mesoestetics.

What should I do when some of the pigmentation marks come back?

Pigment marks are unfortunately always lurking, especially if your skin is sensitive to them. The use of products is indispensable. Pigment-inhibiting creams from Dermaceutic work deep into the skin and calm the pigment cell. In addition, it is important to protect your skin from the sun (SPF 30 or higher) several times a day during the summer and winter months. Mesoestetic's sunscreen with SPF 130 is the perfect cream to block UV radiation.

Is this pigmentation treatment painful?

No, this treatment does not hurt. Due to the active ingredients such as fruit acids and vitamins A and C, the skin will renew itself. This may feel slightly tingly. After removing the mask, the skin may look a little red and feel a bit tight, and flaking may occur. Don't worry, these are desired reactions. The side effects may last for 4 to 6 weeks.
