Women are often affected by this condition, many times during pregnancy. Although melasma does not involve any pain, many people want to reduce the appearance of the darker-colored patches of skin to rejuvenate facial appearance.

Many people with melasma deal with discolored skin throughout their lives, while others may suddenly have patches of darker skin appear due to pregnancy or as a side effect of the hormones in birth control. In either case, treating the condition and restoring the facial skin to an even, clear skin tone is important for aesthetic reasons and to restore confidence and self-esteem.

Treatments for Melasma

The methods used to treat melasma can include the use of topical creams to lighten the skin tone in the targeted area. The creams, lotions, or gels selected to treat an individual will vary based upon skin condition, and how dark the patches of discolored skin have become. Other topically-applied medicines can be used to lighten skin that has dark patches, with specific acid ingredients appropriate to the individual case.

Procedures to Treat Melasma

Procedures used to treat melasma can include:

  • Chemical peels
  • Piqo4 Laser
  • Dermabrasion
  • Laser treatments as appropriate
  • IPL
  • 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.
