What Is Melasma?
Many people deal with melasma at some point during their lifetime, which occurs when uneven blotches of dark skin show up on the face, forearms, and neck. These gray, tan, or brown patches normally develop symmetrically around the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. Melasma is found more often in women with darker skin types and may be caused by UV damage or hormones, like those that occur during pregnancy and menopause. Dr. Neelam Gandhi provides melasma treatment at For Your Wellness Solutions with the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser. This advanced option works through powerful laser energy to help reduce the visibility of gray, brown, or tan patches that are related to melasma. Book an appointment at our South Barrington, IL practice to discover whether laser treatment for melasma might help boost your confidence and enhance your skin.
Laser Melasma Treatment FAQ
What causes melasma?
Melasma can occur throughout all stages of your life. It is most commonly thought to be caused by hormonal fluctuations, like those that occur with pregnancy and birth control medications. Less common causes that are associated with melasma include damage from UV rays, stress, and genetics.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
When utilizing Harmony XL PRO laser technology, our staff will focus targeted light-based energy into darkly pigmented areas on the skin. The laser will gently work to diminish pigmentation so that it can then be absorbed by the body. Though pigmented areas could become darker initially, they will most likely become less noticeable after seven days.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
Though laser therapies can help decrease the look of melasma, other gray, brown, or tan spots may develop over time. A number of treatment sessions might be planned to help lengthen your results.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At For Your Wellness Solutions, the cost of melasma treatment with lasers varies according to personal needs. Our team will design a treatment plan to help target your desired results and talk with you about the easy payment options accepted at our South Barrington, IL office.
For Your Wellness Solutions Reviews
Dr. Ghandi is a true advocate for her patients. I switched over to her when I became pregnant due to my other doctor's availability (had no issues with previous doctor) and never looked back. She's attentive, makes sure you understand what she/her team are sharing with you, and has never made me feel bad for asking a lot of questions. I trust Dr. Ghandi and highly recommend her and her team for care.
