Melasma is a skin condition that causes the skin to develop patches of darker, lighter, or grayish-brown pigmentation.
Melasma most commonly occurs on the face, but it can occur in other parts of the body, especially those that are often exposed to the sun. This skin condition most commonly affects women and often develops during pregnancy, it is sometimes referred to as the "pregnancy mask”.
Melasma can be aggravated and made worse when exposed to UV rays. One of the best methods to treat and reduce your risk of melasma is to use sun protection whenever you plan to spend time in the sun.

We still do not know the exact cause of melasma, but studies have shown that it can be affected by the following conditions and external factors:
Chemical peels can improve the appearance of melasma by removing the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells and cells with extra pigmentation. Chemical peels vary in strength and intensity and can be used in combination with other skin treatments, like micro-needling, for optimal results.
This non-invasive treatment uses laser energy to target and breaks up unwanted pigmentation in the treated area. Laser skin resurfacing helps to stimulate the production of skin support structures, like collagen and elastin and works to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin at the cellular level.
Patients who are experiencing a mild outbreak of melasma can benefit from our microneedling treatments. Microneedling rejuvenates the skin by using an automated medical device containing fine needles to create micro-channels, which stimulates circulation, the production of collagen and elastin, and the body’s natural healing response. The effects of this treatment develop gradually as the newly formed collagen develops and improves the skin from the inside out.
