Understanding Melasma | stubborn facial pigmentation
Melasma is the hardest form of pigmentation to treat, as the pigmentation can be present in both the upper layers of the skin called the epidermis and deeper layers of the skin, the dermis.
A personalised Skin Assessment with one of our Cosmetic Dermal Therapists will determine a program utilising the latest treatments alongside cutting edge techniques to ensure quick, safe and optimal results to fade and manage your Melasma.
How we can help. As Melasma can be found within many layers of the skin and can also be heat sensitive, a multi-phased treatment program incorporating microdermabrasion, peels and Q Switched LASER along with lightening skin care is recommended for optimal results.
Microdermabrasion and Peels. Encourage the damaged and pigmented surface skin cells to slough off, leaving a healthy even glow to all skin types. These exfoliating treatments improve skin luminosity to increase the penetrating benefits of LASER light therapies and cosmeceutical skincare.
Q Switched LASER. The Aesthetic Lounge only utilises world leading laser technology to ensure safe and effective treatment results. Particular wavelengths are attracted to pigment at different layers within the skin, the gentle heating effect from this LASER energy will provide gradual fading of the pigmented melasma lesions.
Quick Results. No Downtime. To ensure effective results during your treatment program, increase the skins metabolism and help prevent further pigmentation forming, the daily use of specialised AHAs, skin lightening serums, antioxidants, vitamins and sunscreen is recommended.
