Melasma Hyperpigmentation Q&A

What is melasma hyperpigmentation?

Melasma hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that causes blotchy patches of darker skin, often on your face. These patches might appear as gray or brown in color. You can experience melasma hyperpigmentation on your:

  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Nose bridge
  • Above your upper lip
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Forearms

Melasma may appear on parts of our body regularly exposed to the sun. Treatment with the Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center team can get rid of melasma hyperpigmentation to achieve even-toned skin and a boost of confidence.

What are the risk factors for melasma hyperpigmentation?

Though anyone can develop melasma hyperpigmentation, it often affects women more than men as just 10% of people who have melasma are male. People with darker skin are also more likely to experience melasma hyperpigmentation.

Additional melasma risk factors include family history of melasma, sun exposure, hormone changes, pregnancy, and using irritating skin care products.

Is melasma hyperpigmentation treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for melasma treatment at Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center, your provider reviews your medical history and examines your skin in areas of concern. They discuss your desired outcome and personalize a treatment plan that offers smooth, even-toned, young-looking skin.

What are my melasma treatment options?

The expert team at Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center uses a variety of methods to reduce melasma hyperpigmentation without surgery or downtime. They offer:

Aerolase laser treatment

The Aerolase laser is safe and effective for all types of skin color and types. During laser treatment, you relax in a comfortable chair. Your provider can numb the treatment area, but no numbing is required, as the Aerolase laser is completely painless for most patients. They apply a handheld laser device to targeted areas of your skin to get rid of darker skin patches.

PCA chemical peels

Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center specialists often combine laser treatment with PCA chemical peels to enhance skin tone. During the procedure, they apply a special chemical solution to your skin to exfoliate top skin layers and stimulate new collagen and elastin production.

Providers might space melasma treatments one month apart, as a series of treatments often produces the best outcome.

Home skin care products

Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center staff also offer home use products and prescriptions to get rid of hyperpigmentation associated with melasma.
