about the Cosmelan treatment

“Cosmelan targets pigmentation (hormonal pigmentation, melasma, aging skin and sun damage), shrinking pores, acne, acne scarring, uneven skin and improving skin texture and skin tightening,” explains Sonja Millar, Cosmelan expert as Cosmelan Clinic at 101 Darley Beauty Collective. {Sonja customises every Cosmelan treatment to each client to ensure optimal results are achieved.}

“The Cosmelan mask is applied at the clinic and remains on your face for 8 hours. The mask is washed off at home and you may expect 2 to 7 days of light to heavy peeling, redness, sensitivity and mild swelling. The following day after the treatment you are offered to lie under the Rejuvalight LED to assist with the healing process and reduce redness.” There are also take-home products and follow up treatments to support your Cosmelan journey.

The result? After the initial week, skin appears luminous, revived, fresh & smooth. The Cosmelan pack includes take-home products to assist in the skins healing phase and prevent pigment from returning. It is imperative that you stick to the home care regime prescribed for you in order to keep the pigment from returning.

Dominica’s skin background

“I’ve tried everything to get rid of my melasma that developed during my first pregnancy 7 years ago and proceeded to get worse over time.⁣
I’ve always been quite self-conscious of my skin, particularly as I’ve gotten older. My pigmentation was getting worse, the sun damage from my youth was becoming more noticeable, and unfortunately, I am a sufferer of adult acne, particularly around that time of the month!”

the consultation with Sonja at Cosmelan Clinic

What were your skin concerns?
My main issue was my pigmentation. I first got it from the pill in my early 20s and it amplified after a trip to Thailand! It looked like I had a moustache made from freckles. Then I fell pregnant and it got even worse!
Add in some sun damage over the years, I got to a stage I felt I couldn’t leave the house without makeup!

How long have you battled with your skin?
For close to a decade.

What other treatments have you tried?
I’ve tried lots of lotions and potions that claim to remove pigmentation, I’ve also spoken to a lot of beauticians over the years about laser, skin needling and other options, but no one could guarantee results with hormonal pigmentation.

What results did you have with those treatments?
The creams – nothing!

How did you hear about Cosmelan?
I actually found it through a Mums Facebook group – got to love word-of-mouth advertising!

the glowing results

When did you start to notice results?
On day 3 I noticed my freckles on my nose had gone, by day 5, I could definitely see some changes, but by day 8 there was a noticeable difference and reduction of pigmentation.

What did you love about Cosmelan?
I loved the results! And with time it continues to get better. My skin actually changed too. My pores seem smaller, my skin seems to glow, I love leaving the house make up free!! The list goes on!!!

Would you recommend it to a friend?
Absolutely! Particularly if they have hormonal pigmentation. And I’d highly recommend Sonja from 101 Darley Beauty Collective – her aftercare service is next level!

Why would you recommend it?
If you are self-conscience about your skin, this will definitely give you newfound confidence. The treatment and products really work!
