MELASMA: How to treat it?
What is Melasma?
If you have dark spots on your chin, neck, forehead, cheeks, or nose, that is called melasma. There are a lot of causes for melasma to occur. Too much sun exposure is one of the most common factor. Hormonal changes is another, which is why women are more prone to the appearance of these discolorations.
How to prevent Melasma?
One way of treating melasma is sun protection. Sunscreen is key to avoid brown spots appearing and when choosing sunblock, look for a product that has SPF 30 and above. Remember to apply at least 15 minutes before heading out to the sun and re-apply every 2 hours.
Opt for gentle skin care products because some products have strong ingredients that can aggravate the spots and cause it to darken even more.
Can I get rid of Melasma?
Answer? Yes. While there are a lot of brightening and lightening creams in the market, another option that you have to consider are skin clinic treatments. Peels and microdermabrasion can lighten spots by stripping away the top layer of the skin. Laser treatment is another effective solution for your discolorations as well.
In our clinic, we offer melasma laser removal starting at 3,500 per session. Note that multiple sessions are needed for the melasma to completely lighten and disappear so continuous follow-ups are important.
