Melasma

Melasma

What is Melasma?

It basically refers to a skin affliction where spots appear that are darker than normal skin on the face, neck, back, upper lips, nose and chin that refuse to go away with normal creams and lotion. It is one of the most common worries of expecting or new mothers. There are several treatments but we believe that laser treatment is best to eliminate Melasma, as it works instantly and has proven results.

How It Works

At Agelock Skin Clinic, we believe in customising the treatment for our clients.

  • After a thorough medical work up and skin check, your dermatologist will customize your treatment which could be a combination of laser therapy or peels along with topical creams like hydroquinone in liquid, cream or gel format.
  • Laser toning: This treatment can effectively correct skin pigmentation, whether they’re at the surface or deep in the dermal layers. Laser toning is performed using non-ablative lasers, which triggers a natural response in the body to produce more collagen and elastin.
  • Lasers have been tried in the treatment of various pigmentary disorders with variable success. Depending on the consult, we will use a combination of chemical peels and laser therapy like Gentle YAG that fades skin discolorations. There are considerably noticeable differences in 2-6 sessions.
  • Plasma Rich Therapy (PRP) is a process in which we use the skin’s own growth factors to reduce pigmentation, add skin volume with time.
