Melasma is a skin condition that causes patches and spots, usually on the face, which are darker than your natural skin tone. Many women first see these blotchy patches and freckle-like spots on their face during pregnancy or when they start taking birth control pills. When melasma appears, it can cause tan, brown, grayish brown, or bluish gray patches and freckle-like spots. These usually appear on certain areas of face like the cheeks, forehead, chin, and even above the upper lip. While less common, melasma can develop on the arms, neck, or elsewhere.  A thorough consultation is necessary to customize your treatment plan. Different modalities may be used in order to achieve best results. 
How we do it?
Microneedling using the SkinPen is a great way to introduce products into your skin by a much greater percentage, about 800% more than when applied without creating the microchannels. We use products like PRP, Tranexamic Acid, Azelaic Acid and Hydroquinone to name a few. Your provider may also prescribe topical skin care.  PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) This process is done with the patients’ own blood which will be centrifuged and then applied on the skin while doing microchannels with the SkinPen in order to deliver PRP to deeper levels of the skin. This is very safe and can help diminish pigment as well as fine lines and wrinkles.  2. Tranexamic acid is a plasmin inhibitor and it has been successfully used off-label in the treatment of melasma.We use it mostly  with microneedling since it  opens channels that go deeper in the skin and get topical skin care absorbed faster and in higher concentration, about 800% more.  3. Azelaic acid is used to treat skin with problems such as acne, pigmentation, and wrinkles as it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The procedure helps stimulate collagen production and skin rejuvenation, and also improves the texture, tone, and appearance of the skin.  4. Hydroquinone is a bleaching cream that helps with pigment by reducing the amount of melanin which are cells that give us our skin tone. In melasma these cells are being produced in larger quantities by our body. Hydroquinone helps by decreasing this “hyperproduction” of melanocytes. 1.Use of medical grade skincare like: Jan Marini Skin Research  Skinceuticals Prescription skincare 2.
