Melasma Description and Details

Melasma is a skin condition that occurs mostly in women and produces brown patches on the face. These patches are most common on the nose, cheeks, forehead, chin and upper lip. It is not known what causes melasma to develop. However genetics, excessive amounts of sun exposure, and hormone levels are thought to play a role.

There is no cure for melasma, but there are effective treatments. Broad-spectrum sunscreen should be worn daily and will help prevent further skin darkening caused by the sun.

Treatments for Melasma and Other Hyperpigmentations

  • Prescription lightening agents containing hydroquinone (i.e. Obagi, Kinerase Skin Lightener) with or without vitamin A derivatives, steroids, and glycolic acid help reduce discoloration over time. Products containing azelaic acid and kojic acid cam also help this condition.

  • Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are frequently used to treat melasma, often in combination with topical agents.

  • Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are often used to reduce pigment with little or no scarring. The latest laser to address melasma is fractional CO2 (Lumenis™ FX). Using state-of-the-art bridge therapy to create a favorable safety profile, the FX laser system has become the gold standard for correction of hyperpigmentation and melasma. Both the PigmentFX and ActiveFX protocols are aimed at this common skin condition, and the results are unmatched by any laser system or procedure currently available.

The staff at the Knight Dermatology Institute will be happy to discuss the many treatments of hyperpigmentation and melasma with you.
