Preliminary Information for the Patient
Important: If you have undergone any previous treatments, especially with glycolic acid, these treatments must be completely stopped at least one week prior to using Cosmelan MD® Depigmentation treatment.
The CosmelanMD® Depigmentation treatment is only administered in a medical office and support products must be continued at home, on a daily basis, according to the guidelines indicated.
The treatment must not be interrupted under any circumstances, during the whole time prescribed. As melanin production is being suppressed, failure to maintain proper use of sunscreen and your support products may allow reactivation of pigment production cycles.
Cosmelan MD® Depigmentation is NOT TO BE COMBINED with any other depigmentation treatments.
Follow up visits are recommended 15 days after the beginning of treatment, and 30 days after, and a follow up treatment are revisit every month thereafter.
