Melasma, also known as chloasma, occurs when irregular patches of darkened skin appear on the face or forearms. These symmetrical tan or brownish spots are usually located on the forehead, nose, cheeks, or upper lip. The uniformity of melasma distinguishes it from other skin conditions that create dark patches on the skin. Caused by sun damage or hormonal fluctuations, melasma happens more frequently in females. Patients with darker skin complexions have an increased risk for developing melasma compared to those with lighter tones. At Lipogenex Anti-Aging Center in Scottsdale, AZ, Dr. Emmanouil Karampahtsis treats melasma with laser-assisted treatments by Harmony XL PRO.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH Laser Melasma treatment
We always start by offering patients a free consultation to ensure this treatment works best for their skin condition. If so, we'll develop a strategy that outlines the cost of laser melasma treatments and the number of sessions you need. At another appointment, we'll perform the procedure with a unique, laser-assisted device that targets your melasma and encourages collagen stimulation. Once done, patients receive detailed aftercare instructions, and our team will schedule any additional appointments.
