Melasma is a common pigmentary disorder characterized by symmetric, brown or gray patches, most commonly on the face. Melasma can affect anyone. Exacerbating factors include pregnancy, use of oral contraceptives, medications, and sun exposure.
Treatment uses a combination of topical creams, chemical peels and laser treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light, Clear + Brilliant®, and Fraxel®. Strict sun protection is the cornerstone of any melasma regimen. Our office offers cutting edge skin care products to assist in the treatment of this chronic condition.
