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.
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.
We have other great technologies available to create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
