Reduce the Appearance of Melasma With the Right Treatment
Melasma is a persistent skin condition that can occur at all stages of your life, especially among women. It’s not painful and it doesn’t pose a health risk, but melasma often causes major emotional distress for the 6 million American women who develop dark, grayish-brown blotches on their faces.
Melasma isn’t always easy to treat, but the skilled aesthetic professionals at All About Me Medical Day Spa in San Diego have developed an effective, personalized three-step treatment protocol to help you achieve and maintain an evener skin tone at any age.
Why cover up those unsightly brownish patches of skin with makeup every day when you can easily get rid of melasma with the right treatment?
A customized melasma treatment for your face
While it can appear anywhere on your body, melasma most often appears on your face as a result of hormonal changes, sun exposure, and even the use of certain skin care products. With that in mind, we developed a treatment plan to address these areas of uneven pigmentation on your face.
After examining your skin, our medical aesthetic specialists recommend a specific type of peel or laser treatment that focuses on creating a more even skin tone and a more youthful appearance.
Because it’s unclear why some women develop melasma and others don’t, general treatments aren’t always successful. But, our personalized three-step process addresses your skin pigmentation and helps you maintain a more even skin tone long term. Your customized melasma treatment plan has three steps, which include:
Clear up your skin and reduce melasma flare-ups
Remedy melasma with a facial peel or with Clear + Brilliant® laser treatments
Maintain your even skin tone long term
We customize the melasma treatment so it’s perfect for you and your skin type.
An effective melasma peel
If we determine that a peel is best for treating your melasma, you undergo a facial peel that’s specifically designed to reduce the appearance of areas of darker skin pigmentation. The peel slowly penetrates your skin to remove uneven surface pigmentation. During the process, the melasma peel doesn’t stimulate melanocytes — the pigment-producing cells in your skin.
When melanocytes become hyperactive, they produce too much pigment in an area of your skin, and this is what leads to melasma. Our melasma peel is carefully formulated not to stimulate your melanocytes so you can maintain a more even skin tone after treatment. The peel is safe for all skin types and you only need one treatment.
Clear + Brilliant laser treatment
If your medical aesthetic specialist at All About Me Medical Day Spa determines that you can best benefit from laser treatments, they recommend the Clear + Brilliant option as part of our three-step process. This gentle anti-aging treatment uses laser energy to lighten the darker pigmented areas of your skin without pain or downtime.
Further, Clear + Brilliant not only improves your skin tone and texture and lightens the darker areas, but it also reduces the appearance of fine lines, minimizes pores, and gives your skin a more radiant, youthful glow.
You might see a difference in your skin tone after a single 30-minute Clear + Brilliant session, but we usually recommend a series of treatments for optimal results. Besides reducing the appearance of your melasma, you’ll love how beautiful and luminous your skin looks after your Clear + Brilliant treatments.
Even if you’ve tried other popular melasma treatments like topical creams, corticosteroids, or medications and acids without success, or those treatments irritated your skin, our carefully crafted melasma treatment protocol can help you reach your aesthetic goals. Our treatments are gentle on your skin, yet highly effective.
