Hyperpigmentation disorders like melasma cause severe social and emotional stress to most people. Melasma is a common condition causing brown, patchy, dark pigment changes to the skin. Melasma usually affects women (although it can be seen on a small percentage of men too). While melasma cannot be cured, when treated using the best possible approach, its appearance can be significantly reduced. Treatment of melasma is usually a multi-factorial approach that uses a combination of chemical peels, fractional laser resurfacing, Q-switch Nd -Yag and prescription topical and oral agents. We advise against IPL or BBL for melasma treatments.
Melasma is a complex treatment, therefore at Lawnton Laser Clinic, your dermal consultant will work out a treatment plan in conjunction with your general practitioner to achieve an optimal and controlled treatment for your skin.
