I began to notice a couple of patches of pigmentation in my mid to late 20s. I’ve always had freckles on my face and body however they were starting to group together in quite visible patches on my cheeks. They have continued to darken and spread in my 30s and I wore foundation and concealer every day to try cover them up. Friends and colleagues said they were not noticeable but I could see them every time I looked in the mirror and I was beginning to really dislike them.
“The therapist was very knowledgeable on the procedure and answered all questions I had…… 3 weeks on from the Cosmelan treatment I am really happy with the results…… The bonus is I haven’t worn foundation or concealer at all since the treatment…… I’ve had many comments on how clear and glowing my skin is, and people are generally quite shocked to see my “before” pictures.”

Over the last 5-10 years I’ve tried a few different treatments including Vitamin C creams, bleaching creams etc. and was waiting for a treatment to be developed which would be able to treat this issue. I discovered Cosmelan about a year or so ago on one of my “googling adventures” and finally it became available at ALSC. I had already had a series of laser treatments at one of the ALSC clinics so knew I would be looked after by the team.
After a few months of my own research on the product I booked in with my local clinic to have a consultation. I felt comfortable and well-informed during the consultation, and the therapist was very knowledgeable on the procedure and answered all questions I had. I booked in for the Cosmelan treatment that day and made sure I had enough time off work to recover (which was only 2 work days, a Friday and Monday).
I went in for my treatment on a Friday and was a little nervous but was soon feeling quite calm as the treatment process began. Really the only awkward moment was freaking out my Uber driver when he picked me up as I had a thick, brown coloured cream all over my face!
Over the next few days as my skin healed from the treatment the side effects were exactly as described by my therapist. My skin was tight, itchy and red and was pretty flaky but these side effects weren’t a surprise. During my follow up appointment on day 3 I felt comfortable that my treatment results were progressing exactly as they should be. One week later on my second follow up my therapist (and I) were really pleased with the initial results.
3 weeks on from the Cosmelan treatment I am really happy with the results. I know my skin will continue to improve over the next 5 months as I continue the aftercare prescribed by my therapist. The bonus is I haven’t worn foundation or concealer at all since the treatment, just a very high SPF sunscreen. I’ve had many comments on how clear and glowing my skin is, and people are generally quite shocked to see my “before” pictures and that such excellent results were obtained so quickly with this treatment. A few of my friends and colleagues have already said they’d like to get the treatment too! – Errin
