Melasma Treatments We Offer
Melasma is a very common brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration, primarily seen on the upper cheeks, lip, forehead, and chin. Uncontrolled sunlight exposure is considered the leading cause of melasma, especially in individuals with a genetic disposition to this condition.
Melasma is most common among pregnant women, called Chloasma, especially those of Latin and Asian descents. People with olive or darker skin, such as Hispanic, Asian, and Middle Eastern individuals, have higher incidences of melasma.
Aerolase for Melasma Control
With the Aerolase laser, melasma can be kept under control when treated every 3-4 weeks.
Depending on the size density of melanin and depth of the affected area, typically melasma will lighten or disappear completely after 3-5 treatments although in some cases more treatments may be necessary.
