When can we see the results of dermamelan®?
The most significant change occurs within a few weeks from applying the mask in consultation. We will see an improvement in the skin texture and a reduction of the spot's colour. This is because, during that period, melanin is removed from the outer layers of the skin. However, we must continue with the treatment for the full 4 months, since removing the accumulated melanin is not enough; we need to regulate its overproduction.
What are the ingredients in dermamelan®?
The new dermamelan® formula is an unprecedented formula with two exclusive patents developed by mesoestetic® to achieve maximum efficacy in correcting and regulating hyperpigmentation. They allow for a highly effective and comprehensive action when treating the most resistant spots:

Melaphennone: it acts directly by reducing the overproduction of pigment in the melanocyte (cell responsible for melanin synthesis).
