What Is Melasma?
Numerous people have melasma, which occurs when irregular blotches of darkened skin appear on the face, neck, and forearms. These gray, tan, or brown pigmented areas typically appear symmetrically on the brow, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. Melasma develops more often among females with darker skin tones and may be triggered by sun exposure or hormonal fluctuations, such as those associated with menopause and pregnancy. We perform melasma treatment at Maya Family Clinic & Medical Spa with Harmony XL PRO laser technology from Alma. This innovative option utilizes powerful laser energy to help lessen the presence of gray, brown, or tan patches related to melasma. Schedule a consultation at our Markham, IL practice to discover if laser treatment for melasma can help increase your confidence and renew your skin.
Laser Melasma Treatment FAQ
What causes melasma?
As a prevalent skin concern, melasma can occur throughout all stages of your life. It's generally thought to be caused by hormonal fluctuations, such as those that are experienced with pregnancy and birth control pills. Additional sources often related to melasma include UV damage, stress, and familial history.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
With Harmony XL PRO laser technology, our staff will direct an intense beam of light into melasmic areas on the top layer of your skin. The light will effectively help diminish pigmentation, which the body can absorb. Although pigmented areas may initially have a darker appearance, they will most likely fade after about seven days.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
Though laser options can help minimize the look of melasma, other pigmented patches may appear over time. Several treatments may be recommended to help prolong your outcomes.
