Cosmelan is a professional grade skin depigmentation treatment which has an intensive corrective effect on existing skin hyperpigmentations (including melasma, freckles, and sun spots) as well as a regulating effect on the appearance of new hyperpigmentation in the long-term, through controlling the overproduction of melanin.

More than a one-off treatment, Cosmelan combines a series of in-clinic professional skin treatments with an easy to follow at home post-treatment skin care routine.
