Best Treatments For Melasma
Chances are you or someone you know struggles with melasma. This condition most commonly affects women of childbearing age (20-40) and can be triggered during pregnancy. In fact, up to 50% of pregnant women will experience melasma. While these light or dark brown spots on the skin are technically harmless, many women feel self-conscious about their appearance. At Rejuvenate, we use several treatments to minimize the appearance of melasma and help you feel confident in your skin.
Chemical Peels For Melasma
The ZO® Stimulator Peel tackles a variety of skin issues, including melasma. Gentle, yet effective, this peel can be performed quickly on your lunch break and results in very minimal peeling. The combination of lactic, citric, and salicylic acid exfoliates the skin, while other skin-boosting agents encourage the production of collagen and elastin. In addition, it also improves the appearance of fine lines, pores, and acne.
Virtue RF Microneedling
Microneedling paired with radiofrequency energy is one of our most versatile skincare procedures. We use the Virtue RF system- widely considered the most comfortable, with minimal pain and downtime. The proprietary robotic precision delivery (RPD) of the microneedles creates no tearing or trauma, unlike other methods. As a result, patients experience a more comfortable treatment session with better outcomes. RF Microneedling improves nearly every aspect of your skin due to the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Pigmentation, like melasma, becomes dispersed during the healing process which lightens the appearance.
Physician Directed Skin Care
In addition to in-office treatments, your at-home skincare routine should target pigmentation. For stubborn issues like melasma, we typically recommend using medical-grade products. We will set you up with a regimen to enhance the results from peels and microneedling to ensure long-term success.
While there is no cure for melasma, the right combination of treatments can make it less visible. Book a consultation with us to discuss our options. We look forward to seeing you!
