Laser Treatment Of Melasma

Though Melasma is not a health hazard and something that you can live a happy life with, it is a condition that can impact your confidence. Laser Care Skin Clinic has the technology to help remove the discolouration and have you feeling your best. This blog aims to help you understand exactly what Melasma is, how it can be treated with lasers and what to expect from the treatment.

What is melasma?

 Before we discuss the treatment, it’s important to know what it is and why you might have it. If you have dark areas that aren’t caused by sun burn, burns or scar tissue, it’s probably melasma. We don’t know the exact cause, but we do have some insight into what may trigger it.

Those with darker skin are more likely to get melasma as the pigment-producing cells are more active than in those with lighter skin. It’s also much more common in women than in men as the condition is sensitive to fluctuations in oestrogen and progesterone.

It is commonly seen in those coming off birth control, HRT and pregnant women. Another major factor is sun damage, so be certain to wear your sunscreen and try and limit your time in the sun.

Treating melasma with laser therapy

If you have melasma, it’s important to remember that it’s completely your choice to treat it. It sometimes resolves itself on its own and having some discolouration doesn’t make you any less fabulous. However, if it is something that is impacting your confidence and your ability to live life to the fullest.

Depending on the cause, severity and the amount of time you’ve had melasma, there are different levels of treatment. The team at Laser Care Skin Clinic have the experience and expertise you need to get the results you’re looking for. We’ll never try and push you into making a decision, but offer our honest, dependable advice on what’s going to work best for your unique skin considerations.

Some levels of melasma can be treated with topical medications that interrupt the process causing the hyperpigmentation. Other times, you’ll need laser therapy that removes clumps of pigmentation and marks them from removal. We can offer a range of wavelengths, which means we can support you no matter the severity.

Clients report a slight snapping feeling during the procedure, but it is generally only mildly uncomfortable. Some may also need repeated treatments to get optimal results.

Hyperpigmentation is harmless but can impact your self-esteem and confidence. This blog aims to help you understand what hyperpigmentation is and your treatment options if you do decide you want to reduce your dark spots or discolouration.

What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is an excess of colour-producing skin cells, which creates an uneven skin tone. Often, this patchiness is far from ugly, but it is entirely your choice if you would like to get rid of them.

Often, hyperpigmentation pops up on the face, which can really impact your confidence. At Laser Care Skin Clinic, we can help with a range of hyperpigmentation issues including age spots, sunspots, blotches and port wine stains. Hyperpigmentation treatment often stimulates collagen production, giving you an even skin tone without blotches and blemishes as well as a youthful, fresh glow.

How do we treat hyperpigmentation?

At Laser Care Skin Clinic, we have the experience and expertise to support people looking to remove their hyperpigmentation. We understand that every person’s skin is unique, which is why we work hard to create a completely bespoke approach to treatment. There are a variety of procedures that can help with different levels of hyperpigmentation.

When will I see results?

This really does depend on the treatment and the severity of any discolouration. Many clients report seeing a major improvement after one treatment, some require a few more. The team at Laser Care Skin Clinic will be able to give you a more accurate estimation after a consultation.
