How Can I Get Rid of Melasma?

Melasma of the skin can be a serious aesthetic concern. Fortunately, you can get rid of excessive pigmentation using a range of laser-based technologies that stimulate cell renewal. Dr. Vargas and the team target pigmented regions with light and laser devices, inactivating dark cells and forcing rejuvenation. The result is less visible lesions and greater body confidence.

About Melasma

Melasma is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of dark patches on the face, arms, and body. Researchers believe that it arises primarily from hormonal changes in the body. Pregnant women or those using birth control pills, for instance, are at the highest risk of developing the condition (although it can affect either gender at any age). Furthermore, both stress and sun exposure appear to play a role. 

Typically, patches of discoloration form on the cheeks, chin, bridge of the nose, and forehead. Some patients also experience skin changes on their necks and arms. Melasma does not cause direct physical harm, but it can affect your overall well being by damaging your confidence.

Treatments Available for Melasma 

Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments that you can use to reduce the appearance of melasma. Over-the-counter creams and ointments are available, but the most effective therapies use light and laser technology. Here are some of the procedures Dr. Vargas and the team offer at The Vascular Experts Florida:

HALO™ Laser 

HALO™ is the world’s first laser that delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. The result is less downtime and better results than traditional fractional resurfacing, which coagulates skin in the dermis’s lower layers. Patients typically experience slightly faster healing with less discomfort. 

ClearSilk™ 

Finally, ClearSilk™ uses award-winning laser technology that heats the skin, damaging pigmented cells, forcing the body to replace them with newer, healthier ones. As with other laser technologies, Dr. Vargas and the team can use this technology to address a host of other skin conditions, including abnormal vascularity. Treatment typically lasts around thirty minutes with no downtime after the procedure.

Am I a Candidate for Melasma Treatment?

If you’ve noticed dark lesions on your face, neck, arms, or elsewhere on your body, you could be a great candidate for melasma treatment. Laser therapy is best for non-pregnant women and typically works much better than the leading creams and ointments. Laser treatment doesn’t guarantee that lesions won’t come back, but it does reduce the appearance of any existing dark patches. Many people choose to reduce the appearance of their melasma before significant life events.
