Cosmelan is a new treatment program for reduction and control of brown spots, skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation. At OC Med Spa, our orange county patients are enjoying younger, smoother and more even-toned skin with cosmelan.  This specially formulated line of skincare products contains hydroquinone plus retinoic acid to produce quick results in reducing pigmentation, dark spots, melasma, and blemishes that can occur due to several reasons such as acne, over and systematic exposure to sun, aging, and freckles.  The Cosmelan Depigmentation program is very sensitive and adaptable to the needs of each patient and skin type. The Cosmelan program acts on the cellular level by inhibiting tyrosinase, a basic enzyme in the melanin formation process.

It consists of a two-step treatment program for depigmentation.

The first step involves visiting our facility in Orange, CA where a certified professional will apply the  mask. This mask is then left on for a period of six to ten hours depending on the patient’s skin type and condition of the skin.

The second step of the Cosmelan treatment involves using Hydravital Factor K Cream followed by the Total Moisturizing Sun Block.
