What Is Melasma?

Numerous individuals deal with melasma at some point, which occurs when irregular patches of darkened skin appear on the face, neck, and forearms. These gray, tan, or brown spots usually develop evenly around the brows, cheeks, nose, chin, or upper lip. Melasma develops more frequently among females with darker skin tones and can be caused by UV exposure or hormones, such as during menopause and pregnancy. We treat melasma at JB Skin & Laser with Alma's Harmony® XL PRO laser. This minimally invasive treatment works through powerful light energy to help diminish the visibility of pigmented areas occurring melasma. Book an appointment at our Barstow, CA office to determine whether melasma treatment with lasers can help boost your self-confidence and refresh your complexion.

Laser Melasma Treatment FAQ

What causes melasma?

Melasma can occur during any stage in a person's life. It's commonly believed to be caused by hormonal changes, including those experienced with birth control medications and pregnancy. Additional factors often associated with melasma are UV damage, stress, and familial history.

How does laser treatment for melasma work?

To perform melasma treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser, your technician will focus a healing energy beam into darkly pigmented areas on the top layer of your skin. The light will gently work to break down pigmentation, which your body can absorb. Even though these areas could become darker initially, they will likely fade after a week.

Does melasma come back after laser treatment?

Even though laser procedures can work to lessen the appearance of melasma, new hyperpigmented patches may appear in the future. Several procedures might be scheduled to help lengthen your outcomes.
