Melasma Treatment

PDF Print E-mail

Melasma
which is most common in women and affects approximately 45 million people worldwide, appears as irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose. Like most other pigmented lesions, melasma is not dangerous, but it can affect your self-confidence, which is why many women hide behind a mask of makeup. 


Causes
Melasma is most common during the hormonal fluctuations of pregnancy, oral contraceptives, or hormone replacement therapy. So instead of celebrating the beauty of motherhood, women who have the melasma must wear the so-called "mask of pregnancy." 


Treatment 
For some women, brown spots will fade after childbirth, hormone therapy, or discontinuation of oral contraceptives, but in many cases, melasma will not go away by itself.

Traditional remedies are enzyme inhibitors, bleaching agents, depigmenting agents, steroid creams, chemical or acid, microdermabrasion, peels and aggressive traditional laser treatments. These methods often provide poor results, significant downtime or the risk of unwanted complications.


Fraxel Treatment
on the other hand, has received FDA approval to significantly reduce melasma, while other treatments have failed to simultaneously reduce downtime and reduce the amount of complaints received.  For more information about our Melasma Treatment, please click on the link to visit our Fraxel page.
