What is melasma?
Millions of people have melasma at times in their lives, which happens when irregular blotches of darkened skin appear on the face, neck, and forearms. These tan, gray, or brown pigmented areas generally develop symmetrically over the forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, or upper lip. Melasma appears more often among women with darker skin types and may be caused by UV damage or hormones like those that occur during menopause and pregnancy. We offer melasma treatment at Ohio Rejuv with Harmony XL PRO laser technology from Alma. This advanced option employs gentle laser energy to help minimize the presence of pigmented patches occurring in melasma. Reserve a skin evaluation at our Westerville, OH facility to determine whether laser treatment for melasma can help restore your self-confidence and renew your complexion.
Laser Melasma Treatment FAQ
What causes melasma?
As a prevalent skin concern, melasma can occur anytime throughout your life. It's most commonly thought to be caused by hormones, including those that are experienced with pregnancy and birth control pills. Additional factors that are commonly related to melasma are sun exposure, stress, and familial history.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
During treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser system, a member of our staff will direct a targeted light-based energy into hyperpigmentation patches on the surface of your skin. The laser will gently help to diminish melanin (the substance that causes discoloration), which can be absorbed naturally by your body. Though pigmented spots may darken initially, they will most likely become less noticeable over the course of seven days.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
While laser options can help reduce the appearance of melasma, more pigmented spots can still develop over time. Periodic procedures could be planned to help preserve your results.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At Ohio Rejuv, the cost of laser melasma treatment varies based on individual skin issues. Our staff will tailor a treatment strategy to help meet your desired results and explain the simple payment methods taken at our Westerville, OH facility.
