What is Melasma?

Often called the “mask of pregnancy,” melasma typically appears during the months when a mother is pregnant. Although melasma occurs 90% of the time in women, some men experience it as well. 

As mentioned above, pregnancy is a common cause of melasma, but it can also be caused by hormone replacement tablets, birth control pills, liver problems, some medications, some waxing products, and certain products that use fragrances. Exposure to sunlight often triggers melasma.

Individuals who have darker skin tones (Latin, Middle Eastern, North African, Mediterranean, Asian, and Indian descent) typically experience melasma more often than those with lighter skin tones.

BeauxMD provides treatments to improve melasma. These procedures are effective and have a high client satisfaction rate. If you’re experiencing melasma, we can help you with the right treatment.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatments can often be an effective way to treat patients with melasma which has not responded well to other forms of treatment. Laser treatment of melasma uses lasers designed to specifically target and break apart deeper pigment within the layers of the skin, leaving the surrounding normal areas of the skin minimally affected. Following the laser treatment, the pigment which was reduced to smaller particles is naturally absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system. With most patients, multiple treatments are necessary when treating stubborn melasma.

Microdermabrasion

With microdermabrasion, the damaged skin is “sanded” off and then immediately suctioned away, which reduces melasma after multiple sessions, leaving behind clearer, healthier skin. Microdermabrasion increases blood flow to the skin, which in turn creates a healthy level of inflammation and subsequent initiation of the healing process. This biologic response serves to clear away the darker tone of the melasma.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels have been proven to be an effective treatment for melasma, especially when patients are mindful to use a high quality sunscreen in conjunction with the treatment. The mild acid in a chemical peel removes damaged skin, which leaves behind a new layer of fresh, glowing skin.
