How to get rid of melasma

04 December 2015 — 17:44


How to get rid of melasmaMelasma is a hyperpigmentation of the facial skin. It causes the appearance of brown, tan, or bluish patches usually on the forehead, upper cheeks, upper lip, and chin.

Melasma is caused by sun exposure, birth control pills, and hormonal changes such as pregnancy. The most common trigger for melasma is intermittent sun exposure.

Melasma Treatment

Melasma can be difficult to treat. The pigment of melasma develops gradually, and the resolve is also gradual. Recurrences of melasma occur when exposed to sun exposure. All wavelengths of sunlight, including the visible spectrum, are capable of inducing melasma.

Many studies have been performed comparing various treatments including topical medications, chemical peels, and laser therapies; however, the most commonly used by dermatologists is hydroquinine cream. The major adverse effect of hydroquinine cream is a mild skin irritation, especially when the more effective, higher concentrations are used. Temporary photosensitivity and inconsistent hyperpigmentation can also occur.

Because of the difficulty to reach the trsult with the melasma treatment medvspa uses the combination of different technologies.

The price for the melasma treatment in medvspa varies from 200/per to 300/per treatment. After the first session we guarantee skin lightening and up to 40% of improvement with hyper pigmentation.
