Treatments for Melasma and Skin Pigmentation Issues
Melasma is a skin condition in which patches of brown or tan discolouration appear on the forehead, cheeks, lips, nose or forearms as a result of the body’s sudden overproduction of pigment. Sometimes called the “mask of pregnancy,” melasma can afflict anyone, but is most often triggered in women—especially during the hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy, oral contraceptive use or hormone replacement therapy.

Melasma affects an estimated six million people in the US alone. Though not dangerous, the condition can cause embarrassment and undermine self-confidence.
Conventional remedies for melasma include enzyme inhibitors, depigmenting agents, bleaches, steroids, pulsed light, acid facial peels and aggressive dermabrasion techniques. Seldom are such strategies effective. No wonder so many people give up and simply hide themselves behind heavy makeup.
We offer a number of laser treatments that are effective at dealing with melasma. We use combination treatments using products as well as laser treatments to achieve success with the reduction of melasma.
