Minimize or Eliminate Your Melasma – with Laser Treatment for Melasma!

What is Melasma? 

Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation in which the skin has irregular patches of smooth brown or grayish pigment. The blotches do not itch or hurt. Melasma is not contagious, nor is it dangerous. Its high incidence among expectant women has given melasma the nickname, “mask of pregnancy” and, in fact, melasma occurs most often in women between 20 and 50 years of age. It is more common among Hispanic, Asian and Mediterranean women than Caucasian women. Laser treatments for melasma have effectively eliminated the embarrassing hyperpigmentation of melasma.

What Causes Melasma?

  1. Sun exposure
  1. Other skin problems, such as acne
  1. A genetic tendency or family history
  1. Changes in hormone levels, particularly during pregnancy or as a result of birth control pills or HRT (hormone replacement therapy).
  1. Some medications can increase skin pigmentation after sun exposure.


How Do Lasers Treat Melasma?

All laser skin treatments work on the basis of the “heat and heal” phenomenon. Essentially, the treated areas of skin are damaged by the high heat of the laser, and the skin’s recovery process results in an increased production of collagen, one of the building blocks of youthful skin. With the IPL laser treatment, the laser energy literally shatters the dark pigment, which is then absorbed by the body, allowing the skin tone to appear more smooth and even.

Which Laser is Best for Melasma?

Boca Raton plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Berman uses the Cynosure laser MaxG™ for melasma. This laser technology, called IPL or Intense Pulsed Light laser treatment, delivers burst of light that shatter the pigment, resulting in clearer skin. Several treatments, each based about a month apart, may be required for adequate resolution of hyperpigmentation.

How Laser Treatments for Melasma are Performed

When you arrive at Dr. Jonathan Berman’s Boca Raton plastic surgery office, your skin will be cleansed, followed by the application of a cream anesthetic. Both you and Dr. Berman will don protective eyewear during the procedure, which will take from 20-60 minutes to perform.
