What is Melasma?

Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder that causes brown or gray patches to appear on the skin, primarily on the face. It happens when there is an excessive amount of melanin, a dark pigment on the skin when it is exposed to the sun.

The most common areas on the face where melasma appears include the bridge of the nose, forehead, cheeks and the upper lip. Melasma can also appear on other parts of the body that are exposed to sunlight including the forearms, neck and shoulders.

What is the Best Way to Treat Melasma?

Laser and chemical peels have been effective in reducing the appearance of pigmentation caused by melasma. You will first have a consultation with a certified and experienced aesthetician to examine your skin and discuss treatment goals to develop a customized treatment plan.

Our chemical peel melasma treatment NYC involves removing layers of skin so new skin can develop. The laser melasma treatment NYC specifically targets problem areas while leaving the skin’s top layer intact.

What Causes Melasma?

Doctors don’t fully understand why melasma happens and there is currently no melasma cure. People with darker skin tones are more likely to develop melasma. Some potential triggers include sun exposure and certain skin care products. Genetics can also be a factor as people with close relatives who have had melasma are more likely to develop it themselves.

What Does Melasma Look Like?

Melasma first appears as dark spots on the face such as sunspots or sun damaged skin. Later, the spots develop into a more extensive “mask-like” coverage of the skin with an uneven, brown-toned discoloration that is mostly found on the cheeks, nose, lips and forehead.

What Should I Do After my Treatments?

It is important to keep caring for your skin after receiving chemical peel or laser melasma treatment NYC. You can use sunscreens that protect against UVA and UVB rays and stop using any facial cleansers, creams, or makeup that irritate the skin.

Chemical Peel Melasma Treatment NYC

With our chemical peel melasma treatment NYC, a chemical solution is applied to targeted areas to remove the surface of the skin. Afterward, the new skin underneath is smoother and less wrinkled.

There are three types of chemical peels: light, medium and deep. After your recommended number of treatments, the chemical peel will boost collagen production to create firmer skin, fade pigment spots and smoothen your skin. Our chemical peel melasma treatment NYC also improves your skin’s ability to absorb skin care products.

Laser Melasma Treatment NYC

Our laser melasma treatment NYC effectively and accurately targets collection spots under the surface with light energy. The top layer of skin is left completely intact and no tissue is destroyed in the process.

Because the waveband is so narrow, it eliminates harmful effects on the skin making it safe for all skin types. The laser works on sensitive skin areas including the face, body, and neck. As the melanin absorbs energy, the pigmentation is cleared so you are left with an even and uniform skin tone.

Benefits of Laser Melasma Treatment NYC

You simply have to come in for a short 30-minute procedure at any time of the year. Don’t have to worry about pain, downtime, or numbing cream. The dark spots and hyperpigmentation will initially get darker for up to a week then they will lighten up or disappear altogether.

The laser stimulates the skin’s natural healing process while improving collagen production with fast and long-lasting results. Most people need 3 to 4 sessions about a month apart. In addition to our laser melasma treatment, NYC clients can effectively combine the laser with other effective procedures to optimize results.
