Reducing Brown, Age & Sun Spots
Melasma is a chronic condition and causes brown to gray-brown patches on the face. Most people get Melasma on their cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin and above their upper lip. It can also appear on other parts of the body that receive lots of sun, such as the forearms and neck.
Women Are At A Higher Risk
Women are far more likely than men to get Melasma. It is so common during pregnancy that some people call it the “mask of pregnancy”. Hormones seem to trigger Melasma including prolonged use of birth control.
Most people are unaware that IPL lasers and the notorius Fraxel will actually make the melasma worse! Chemical peels are another option, but since melasma is so deep in the dermis you run the risk of side effects and down time.
With Melasma, the trick is to get rid of the dyschromia without causing inflammation because inflammation can worsen the Melasma. That’s why these high powered hot lasers are actually making things worse. Make sure you entrust your skin with a highly trained professional.
Brown spots, age spots, sun spots — whatever you call yours, there is a way to reduce the appearance of these unsightly skin pigmentations. At Mephis Laser Clinic we use the advanced technology of PicoWay laser to target skin pigmentations and break them into smaller particles that are easily absorbed by the body.
