Skin Lightening System

Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery offers the Cosmelan® Mask as a skin lightening system. This depigmentation treatment removes blemishes and recover the smoothness and luminosity of the skin.

What does the Skin Lightening System treat?

Skin Lightening System treats each of these common pigmentation problems with skin:

  • Dark spots caused by photo-aging
  • Facial blemishes / dark spots due to excessive pigmentation
  • Imperfections caused by melanin (color-producing pigment)

With a high safety margin, the Skin Lightening System is suitable for all skin types. The Skin Lightening System works by blocking the enzyme involved in the melanin formation process. Using a light peeling effect, it is very efficient in treating all types of melasma.

What is a Skin Lightening System procedure like?

The Skin Lightening System consists of an office treatment (application of a hydroquinone and retinoid mask). The treatment is then continued at home, using the products provided in the kit and according to the patient guidelines. In our office, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any dead cells and oily residues. A facial mask is then applied over the surface of the skin. The mask remains on the skin from 5 to 10 hours, depending on your skin type.

During the first 7 days of the treatment, the skin will redden and some swelling will occur. Flaking of the skin typically occurs between the second and third day of treatment. Just one week after starting the treatment, a noticeable and significant improvement of the skin may be seen.
