Melasma Treatment| Dallas Skin Doctor | Cosmetic Skincare Clinic
Melasma or hormonal hyperpigmentation is a frustrating and difficult to treat skin condition.
We have helped countless individuals improve the hyperpigmentation from melasma during years of practicing cosmetic skin care in Dallas and surrounding areas. Over the years our treatment plan for management of melasma has evolved based on our experience treating this skin disorder and observation of response of patients with different skin types.
We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to treat a vast diversity of patients at our Southlake and Dallas skincare clinics and have fine tuned the treatment parameters for individual skin types for optimum outcome. We also believe that each peron’s response to any skin treatment is as unique as the person so we start with customized skin treatment plan for you and modify the treatment based on your response to the skin treatment.
Firstly, it is essential to know that skin resurfacing lasers or Fotofacials do very little to improve melasma and in fact, may even worsen it. Yet we have seen and continue to see so many people with melasma who were advised to undergo these types of treatments. Our advice, seek consultaion with an experienced physician before signing up for any fancy lasers or IPL fotofacial for melasma or you will end up disappointed and in worse case, with worsening of pigmentation and possible irreversible scarring.
In our skincare practice, we have found that the best long term management of hyperpigmentation from melasma can be achieved with a comprehensive treatment plan consisting of a prescription topical skin lightener (we use a custom compounded formulation), avoidance of excess sun exposure, daily sunscreen application, hormone correction if applicable and the right type of skincare.
We do employ a couple of non-invasive “in office” treatments based on your skin type and response to the prescription skin lightener. For a lot of our melasma patients we have had great results when we combine the above with successive sessions of medical grade microdermabrasion and medicated skin lightening peels.
Of course your treatment plan will depend on your skin type, the severity of your skin pigmentation, response to previous treatments, your lifestyle and finally your genetics, but we are quite confident that we can help you reduce the pigmentation from melasma.
Remember melasma cannot be eradicated, but significant improvement can be achieved with a well executed long term treatment plan.
