Even the most challenging cases of melasma, occurring in darker skinned women, can be effectively treated with AMA Skincare’s advanced laser protocols.
MELASMA TREATMENT IN LOS ANGELES AND ORANGE COUNTY
Melasma is a dark skin discoloration caused by excessive melanin found predominantly in women on sun-exposed areas of the face. It’s a very common skin disorder that can be effectively treated with AMA Skincare’s advanced laser treatments.
Those most affected by this skin disorder are women with medium to darker skin tones. Women experiencing hormonal fluctuations in pregnancy, or while taking contraceptive pills or hormone replacement therapy, have a greater incidence of this condition. The risk is even higher for those over-exposed to sunlight, or whose skin has suffered chronic irritation from external sources such as chemicals, abrasion and even waxing.
Typically, melasma first appears as sunspots or sun damaged skin, and later develops into a more extensive “mask-like” coverage of the skin, with an uneven, brown-toned discoloration found mostly on the cheeks, nose, lips and forehead. See below to view photos of laser-badsed melasma treatments.
The color of skin affected by melasma will vary depending on the concentration, density and depth of melanin at different locations within the affected area. Accordingly, the most effective melasma treatments often require a combination of different lasers. Fortunately, AMA Skincare has 6 different types of lasers that effectively target virtually all types of skin discolorations.
Effective melasma treatment protocols typically require 4-7 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. In each case our unique protocols interact with your body’s natural physiological processes regulating melanin content and turnover. Together the synergistic partnership between our science and your physiology achieves the best possible results.
