Treatment Options for Melasma
Laser Melasma Treatment
Our high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment isn’t only great for tightening the face. It’s also very effective for treating melasma. Studies even show that HIFU is especially effective for melasma caused by sun exposure.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive and all natural treatment option for melasma. Using microinjections, skin-lightening substances like hydroquinone and glutathione are delivered directly to the affected area. This helps boost their efficacy which produces quicker results.
Chemical peels is one of our most popular (and most effective!) melasma treatment. It’s very safe too! It works by peeling off the outer layer of the skin to reveal the younger skin underneath. The acid can also inhibit melanin production to prevent the dark spots from coming back.
PRP uses plasma from your own blood to encourage healing and cell rejuvenation. The new skin growth pushes out the older skin and reduces melanin production leading to fairer, more even-toned skin.
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive procedure for melasma, our hydrafacial microdermabrasion is your best bet. We use a special tool to create gentle abrasions on your skin. This exfoliation process peels away the top layer of your skin and encourages new skin growth.
If needles don’t bother you, then microneedling is a great option for melasma treatment too. This procedure uses multiple tiny needles to prick your skin and encourage healing and cell rejuvenation. Most people also pair microneedling with skin lightening treatments for optimal results.
What is Melasma?
Melasma is a common skin disorder that causes dark spots and patches on the skin, particularly on the face. These spots can vary in color, from light to dark brown and even blue-gray. It usually appears on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. Though, in some cases, it can also affect your neck, arms, and back.
There are two main culprits for melasma: changing hormone levels and constant exposure to the sun. Hormones, heat, and ultraviolet rays can induce our skin to produce more melanin, the pigment responsible for our coloring. When too much melanin gathers in one spot, it can cause discoloration and melasma.
Often referred to as the “mask of pregnancy”, melasma is more common in pregnant women. It also affects most women in their reproductive years, though to varying degrees.
How is Melasma Diagnosed?
Dermatologists usually diagnose melasma by closely examining the area where discoloration is apparent. They may also use a blacklight to see if there is a change in your skin’s color.
Though melasma is pretty common, it often gets mistaken for other types of skin conditions. So before seeking a melasma treatment, make sure to get a proper diagnosis from a dermatologist first.
How is Melasma Treated?
There are lots of ways to treat melasma. You can go for home remedies like topical creams or apple cider vinegar. These remedies however take a long time to take effect. Some of them also don’t have any scientific evidence supporting their efficacy.
If you’re looking for fast and guaranteed results, we have a variety of cosmetic procedures that can help with melasma.
How Long Do Treatments for Melasma Take?
Depending on the treatment you choose, it can take around 2 to 3 months for results to become noticeable. But this is only possible if you follow your treatment plan and avoid doing anything that can worsen your melasma.
