Cosmelan is the Gold Standard treatment for Melasma world-wide.

What is melasma and do I suffer from it?

Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin disorder. It presents itself in brown patches, commonly found on the hands and face. In some cases it is referred to as: Melasma.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Skin tone is defined by the presence of melanin. Darker skins have higher amounts of melanin, and lighter skins, have lower amounts of melanin. Often, Melasma occurs when there is an increased melanin production. This creates a darker skin tone in some areas, leaving the skin blotchy and uneven. Causes of skin pigmentation can range from genetic predisposition – aggravated by high exposure to strong sunlight, to hormonal changes – such a pregnancy, menopause or taking oral contraceptives.

How does cosmelan help?

cosmelan acts by blocking the melanin-producing enzyme (Tyrosinase), therefore reducing the production of melasma.
