Cosmelan Peel for Melasma
Melasma is a form of hyperpigmentation of the skin typically caused by sun damage, although stress and thyroid disease are also thought to be contributing factors. With melasma, the patient develops brown or gray patches on the skin, primarily on the forehead, cheeks and bridge of the nose. Some consider these patches to look like overlarge freckles. Dr. Ben Talei and the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery provide Cosmelan peel treatments for patients suffering from hyperpigmentation disorders like melasma.
In a Cosmelan peel treatment, the depigmentation agent Cosmelan is applied to the skin. It interacts with the enzyme that is primarily involved with the darkening of the skin. This decreases the body’s production of melanin, which contributes to dark skin and other discolorations. As melanin production is reduced, dark spots lighten, especially when other skin treatments are used to target the dark spots. Research has demonstrated that Cosmelan peels can reduce skin spots and discolorations by up to 90 percent.
Facial Pigmentation Treatment
When any condition affects a person’s facial appearance, it can cause traumatic emotions and mental stress. Dr. Talei understands these anxieties and is sympathetic to patients who need treatment for facial pigmentation issues. As a highly experienced and extensively trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, you can be sure that Dr. Talei will only offer the most advanced and effective treatments for cosmetic rejuvenation to his patients.
Each patient receives a private consultation before any treatment modalities are discussed. Your medical history and current condition are evaluated, and your questions and concerns are addressed patiently and honestly. Dr. Talei and his staff will then propose a treatment protocol tailored to your specific needs and explain each procedure. If you suffer from hyperpigmentation issues like melasma, a Cosmelan peel treatment may help you.
