You want your skin to be bright, even and healthy-looking, a true reflection of your inner spirit. Unfortunately, even if you take good care of your body and skin and you use sun-protecting products whenever possible, you may still suffer from skin discoloration problems, also known as hyperpigmentation. Your symptoms may include freckles, age or sun spots or even melasma.

Hyperpigmentation isn’t a sign of poor health, however. Despite this fact, unwanted spots or patches on the skin can still negatively impact your beautiful look and begin harm your mood and confidence. If you find yourself struggling with these concerns, you now have a safe, effective and convenient option to beautify your skin again.

Gravity Medical Spa now proudly offers Cosmelan

Cosmelan can correct hyperpigmentation issues by reducing melanin in the skin — the naturally-occurring substance responsible for dark spots. After having Cosmelan, you can enjoy much more attractive, even-toned skin that can truly give you your spark back!

First of all, why do I have skin discoloration problems?

You’re not alone. As many as 90 percent of men and women over the age of 50 suffer from some form of hyperpigmentation. However, the problem can affect people of any age. While several factors can lead to hyperpigmentation — such as aging, sun exposure, hormones and your genes — often, no single cause is responsible for the problem. If you have this problem, you have hope and it can be treated effectively with Cosmelan now.

How can Cosmelan help improve my skin?

Cosmelan gives you comprehensive, long-lasting results because it treats every phase of the pigmentation process. The treatment reduces the severity of the discolored areas you have, keeps them from coming back and also helps prevent the formation of new trouble spots. You can promote and extend your beautiful results with simple, at-home treatments, after your doctor visit, that can help you enjoy your fresh new skin for months or even longer.

Your Cosmelan treatment also helps your skin in more ways. Not only does Cosmelan reduce the impact that melanin can have on your skin but also the treatment encourages your skin to renew itself by eliminating dead skin cells. The result is that you will have softer, blemish-free new skin more quickly so you can enjoy your results faster. The high-quality, long-lasting and safe results you can achieve using Cosmelan make it a procedure you will want to have now.

What concerns does Cosmelan treat?

Cosmelan may be an ideal treatment for you if you have any of the following skin concerns, including:

  • Age spots or sun damage
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Unwanted freckles
  • Skin texture issues
  • Enlarged pores
  • Melasma

Cosmelan can also improve other issues with the skin. If you are still unsure whether or not Cosmelan is the best treatment for your needs, visit the skincare professionals at Gravity. We can help answer all your questions and get you started on an ideal treatment right away.

Do I qualify for a Cosmelan treatment?

Cosmelan safely treats men and women of any ethnicity, regardless of your skin color or skin type. However, to be completely sure you can have Cosmelan and that it is the right treatment for your needs, schedule your in-person consultation with Dr. Tonya Boudreaux of Gravity Medical Spa right away. Dr. Boudreaux will examine your skin, taking special note of your symptoms, and also listen carefully to your skin goals. She can then advise you whether Cosmelan or another treatment Gravity offers can give you the results you want.

How does Cosmelan compare to other skin treatments?

Cosmelan offers men and women benefits over other competing skin treatments.

  • Cosmelan minimizes the impact of melanin in your skin and helps reduce future melanin problems. Other common skin treatments may not help you prevent future issues, leaving your skin at risk after treatment.
  • Cosmelan is versatile since it can help individuals regardless of their age, gender, skin type or skin color.
  • Cosmelan is safe since it boosts your body’s natural skin healing mechanisms to achieve your beautiful new look quickly. Patients will not have to face the potential risks of using chemical products.
  • Cosmelan is convenient; you can leave your doctor’s office the same day with no recovery versus invasive treatments, such as surgery, that will require a lengthy recovery.
  • Cosmelan also offers you greater value since you will only need simple follow-ups every few months instead of re-treatments.

For these reasons and more, patients with skin blemishes of any kind will want to consider Cosmelan first to achieve their goals.

What will happen during my Cosmelan treatment?

One of Cosmelan’s many advantages is that it is a fast and convenient treatment that you can have right here at Gravity Medical Spa. Your treatment will begin with a facial cleansing performed by your provider. This step will help prepare your skin so that you get the most from your treatment. Once your skin is ready, your provider will apply the Cosmelan face mask, which will have a fairly thick consistency. You will keep the mask on your skin for several hours based on your doctor’s recommendation; this could range anywhere from eight to 12 hours, depending on your needs.

After you have your mask, you can return home. You won’t have any restrictions on your activities, provided it does not affect your mask. Once the allotted time has passed, you will wash the mask off gently with lukewarm water until all of the application is cleared away. You will want to protect your eyes while rinsing but this step is straightforward and safe. Also, be sure not to leave the mask on longer than your doctor recommends; the timing is optimized for best results. Your doctor will also provide you with product and instructions for the at-home maintenance phase.

What is recovery from Cosmelan like?

Recovery from Cosmelan is relatively comfortable but you will still need a few days of downtime before resuming your social routine. This may range anywhere from four to 10 days, depending on your symptoms and the amount of treatment needed. You will have some mild but temporary side effects from your Cosmelan treatment, as well. These will include some skin redness, tightness and itchiness but these symptoms will be very manageable. After about two days, you will be ready for your at-home maintenance treatments.
At this time, you will apply Cosmelan supplements to the skin, which will continue your treatment and promote your results by reducing excess melanin. You will apply the cream to your skin based on your doctor’s recommendation, about two to three times per day. Your skin will begin to flake as a result of treatment and this is a desired outcome; it means that your treatment is working and damaged skin is being replaced with new, healthy, beautiful-looking skin tissues.

You will also need to take a few extra steps to protect your skin through this process. Dr. Boudreaux will supply with a hydra-vital factor cream, which will help keep your skin hydrated, and you will also want to wear an SPF of 50 or greater to prevent UV damage of delicate, healing skin tissues. In a very short period of time, your skin will complete its transition to the luminous skin you deserve and have been waiting for.

What will my Cosmelan results be like?

Your Cosmelan results will begin immediately and continue over time. During the first week, once your initial side effects have begun to subside, you will already notice a difference in your skin. Full results will take four to five weeks to develop and then you will see the very dramatic difference in your skin appearance and texture. You will continue your aftercare treatments for about six to seven months to sustain your results and ensure you receive the full benefit of the treatment — smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin free from discoloration and scarring.

Most patients enjoy their beautiful results for 18 months or more; however, each patient is unique. This is why it is important to continue applying supplemental creams to your skin for the full duration. It is also important to check-in with Dr. Boudreaux at Gravity Medical Spa periodically so she can re-examine you and determine the best way to extend your results indefinitely.

Who do I call to get started with my Cosmelan skin treatment?

Like any cosmetic treatment, the skills, ability and expertise of your provider will have a deciding impact on the quality of your results. You will only have the look you want when you visit a provider with ample experience with Cosmelan, who also will spend considerable time with you to understand your needs and goals. When your provider has a complete grasp of the procedure as well as of your aims, having a beautiful look after treatment becomes a very-realistic outcome.

Women and men trust Dr. Tonya Boudreaux of Gravity Medical Spa for precisely these reasons. The doctor’s warmth and focus on patient care extend beyond the confines of her practice and make new and old patients completely comfortable, leading to more satisfying outcomes that last. Dr. Boudreaux has also assembled a talented and kind staff that ensures you feel welcome and well-cared for throughout every office visit.

Dr. Boudreaux’s treatment philosophy is a truly holistic one. She understands that the way you look can have a major impact — both negative and positive — on your overall wellbeing. For this reason, the doctor places the highest emphasis on using only the most effective and proven treatments, which produce results safely. Also, the doctor always looks for additional ways to provide her patients with substantive improvements that celebrate their individuality and fit their lifestyle.
