Melasma

Melasma

Melasma is a common skin condition characterized by dark, discolored patches that typically appear on areas of the face exposed to the sun, such as the cheeks, forehead, upper lip, and chin. This condition is more prevalent in women and individuals with darker skin tones. Melasma occurs due to an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, leading to the formation of these hyperpigmented patches. Factors such as hormonal changes, sun exposure, genetics, and certain medications can contribute to the development of melasma. While melasma is not harmful, it can impact one’s self-esteem and quality of life. Treatment options include topical medications, laser therapy, hydrafacials, and strict sun protection measures to manage and improve the appearance of melasma.

Dos & Don’ts – Before Treatment

Dos & Don’ts – Before Treatment

Please arrive with a clean face free of makeup to ensure optimal treatment efficacy. To prepare for the appointment, it is advised to refrain from using skin-irritating substances like retinol, vitamin C, and exfoliants in the 3-5 days leading up to the session, as these can increase skin sensitivity during treatment and potentially heighten discomfort.

Consistent daily application of sunscreen is highly recommended to protect the skin and prevent further pigmentation issues. Additionally, it is crucial to avoid sun exposure both before the treatment to maintain the skin’s health and aid in the effectiveness of the melasma treatment process.

Dos & Don’ts – After Treatment

Dos & Don’ts – After Treatment

Continue daily sunscreen use to protect the treated area from sun damage and aid in the healing process. Sunscreen helps prevent hyperpigmentation and supports overall skin recovery. Furthermore, it is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure both after the treatment to minimize the risk of complications and to promote the skin’s rejuvenation.
