Melasma Q & A

What is melasma?

Melasma is a skin condition that causes brown or gray-brown pigmented patches to form on your skin. The dark patches of skin can form anywhere on your body, but most often affects the face. Melasma is more commonly seen in women.

Researchers aren’t certain what causes melasma to develop, but note that the sun, hormones, and skin care products trigger the development of dark patches.

What treatments can improve my melasma?

The experienced team at All About Me Medical Day Spa work closely with you to determine the best treatment for your skin concerns. For melasma, the team may recommend:

Melasma peel

The melasma peel is specifically designed to treat melasma and reduce the appearance of the pigmentation. The peel works by slowly penetrating your skin and removing the surface pigmentation without stimulating the pigmenting cells, also known as melanocytes. With the melasma peel, you only need one treatment. It’s safe for all skin types.

Clear + Brilliant®  

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle, anti-aging laser treatment that lightens your pigmented skin without pain or downtime. You may experience some redness following your treatment, but these side effects disappear quickly. To get the best results, you may need 4-6 sessions.

The best treatment for you depends on the severity of your melasma.
