What Is Melasma?
Melasma is a very common condition of facial skin discoloration, typically found in women during their reproductive years. It is often seen on the chin, forehead, bridge of the nose, upper lips and upper cheeks of women between the ages of 20 and 50. It can also occur on the neck and forearms. Men can experience melasma too, although reported cases are uncommon.
Melasma is believed to be primarily related to internal hormonal changes in pregnant women, external hormone changes like birth control pills, or external environmental influences, such as sun exposure.
Melasma and Hyperpigmentation Treatments We Offer
Our experienced team of licensed aestheticians and laser technicians are uniquely qualified to treat melasma and hyperpigmentation for patients of all skin types, including:
- Chemical peels: Urban Skin Solutions offers a wide variety of chemical peels to address a number of skin issues, including melasma. Our peels can help hormonal discolorations as well as hyperpigmentation from scarring, post-inflammatory pigmentation and other types of skin discoloration.
- IPL photofacial: IPL stands for intense pulsed light. Our IPL photofacial is a fast, safe and effective laser treatment which specifically targets melanocytes. Once the cells responsible for hyperpigmentation are eliminated, the pigment diminishes and disappears.
- Clear + Brilliant: Ideal for patients of any skin type and ethnicity, Clear + Brilliant shrinks pores, builds collagen and improves the tone ant texture of the skin.
- Prescription Strength Skin Care: We are proud to offer patients the Urban Skin Rx Uneven Skin Tone Regimen, which offers a powerful home-care solution for skin that suffers from melasma, hyperpigmentation and a number of other issues.
The best way to know which treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation. During your initial visit, we will evaluate your condition and recommend options that are best suited for your unique situation.
