What is Melasma?
Many people experience melasma at some point during their lifetime, which happens when uneven blotches of dark skin show up on the face, forearms, and neck. These tan, gray, or brown spots often appear around the forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, or upper lip. Melasma develops more frequently among women with darker skin colors and can be triggered by UV exposure or hormonal fluctuations, like those associated with menopause and pregnancy.
Laser Melasma Treatment FAQs
What causes melasma?
As a common skin condition, melasma can occur throughout all stages of an individual’s life. It is often the result of hormones, such as those from birth control pills or pregnancy. Other causes of melasma include sun exposure, stress, and family history.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
When utilizing Harmony XL PRO laser technology, our staff will focus an intense energy beam into darkly pigmented areas on the top layer of your skin. The light will gently work to smooth away the damaged layers of skin and rejuvenate your complexion. Though these spots could become darker initially, they should fade after several days.
Does melasma come back after laser treatments?
Though laser therapies can work to reduce the appearance of melasma, additional gray, brown, or tan patches can still develop in the future. Periodic treatments might be scheduled to help extend your outcomes.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatments?
At Ridgeline Aesthetics, the price of melasma laser treatments will vary based on your personal skin issues. We will create a treatment strategy to help fit your desired outcomes and discuss the payment options accepted at our Idaho Falls, ID office.
