The term “melasma” refers to a common facial skin problem, in which the face has greyish-brown patches on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, or above the upper lip. The patches can also appear on body areas that have been exposed to the sun, such as forearms or neck.
Procedures to Treat Melasma
Procedures used to treat melasma can include:
- Chemical peels
- Piqo4 Laser
- Laser treatments as appropriate
- EXCEL V
- Cosmelan MD
- Prescription Topicals
When the skin overproduces melanin (pigment), dark patches of skin can appear on the face and other areas of the body. A combination therapy treatment that is specifically tailored for the individual case can make all the difference in reducing or removing the patchy areas of discolored skin.
