Have you noticed islands of pigmentation on your face? Is your face or neck blotchy with different shades of color? You may have melasma. Melasma is characterized by dark patches of pigmentation or color in the skin. These dark patches get worse with sun exposure, hormones as well as even heat. Melasma is not an easy skin condition to manage on your own and requires expert care in developing a customized action plan.
The best time to start treatment of melasma is the end of the summer and into the fall. Our Delaware med spa uses prescription products to improve the skin on all level from the superficial layers of pigmentation to the deeper layers. Can you get rid of melasma? In our experience, melasma can significantly improve but it will have surges like in the summer months when you are exposed to more heat and sun.
The first step to treating melasma is to use products that suppress the cells that make pigmentation. These cells are deep in the skin and only certain active ingredients will be able to accomplish this. Also, RetinA or retinols are a key component of improvement of melasma.
Here is a great before and after photo of the treatment of melasma. Our skin care expert developed a protocol that was specific for her skin type and condition and as you can see, the protocol worked wonders.
