What Is Melasma?

Melasma is a skin condition that causes dark, discolored patches of skin to appear around the cheeks, forehead, chin, and bridge of the nose. Also known commonly as the mask of pregnancy, melasma is most commonly found in women who have experienced intense hormonal changes, such as the changes brought on by oral birth control methods, pregnancy, and childbirth. While melasma isn’t painful or harmful to have, many of our patients are unhappy with the way it looks.

If you think you may have melasma and are interested in reducing its appearance, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation One of our medical team members will be happy to sit down with you and go over your treatment options, so you can restore your clear skin and go back to living your life with confidence.

What Causes Melasma?

Research has shown the two most common causes of melasma include hormonal changes and excess exposure to the sun. Women who are sensitive to estrogen and progesterone may find their melasma appeared following the use of birth control pills, pregnancy, or hormone replacement therapy. Other patients who have a history of sun exposure without protection have also seen the development of melasma over the years. Melasma is most common in patients with sensitivity to hormones and who have deeper skin tones and darker features.

What Melasma Treatments Are Available?

Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s professional medical team is proud to offer a wide range of melasma treatments to men and women, including:

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Our laser skin resurfacing treatments address your melasma at its source, targeting hyperpigmented cells underneath the surface of the skin to reduce your brown and gray melasma. These treatments are minimally invasive, meaning you get the results you desire without an extensive recovery period.

Chemical Peels

Our chemical peels work to gently exfoliate away the surface layers of your treated skin, revealing a fresh and new complexion underneath. Each peel treatment can be customized to treat your problem areas, reducing the appearance of your melasma in the long term.

How Much DO Melasma Treatments Cost?

The cost of your melasma treatments will depend on the type of treatment you choose to receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and the coverage provided by your current health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your melasma treatments will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
