What is Melasma Treatment?
Melasma can occur at any point during our lifetime. These irregular areas of tan, gray, or brownish darkened areas normally appear symmetrically around the brow, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. Melasma develops more frequently in women with darker skin tones and may be due to UV damage or hormonal changes, like those that accompany menopause and pregnancy. Our team provides melasma treatment at Brentwood Skin Clinic with Alma Harmony XL PRO laser technology. This innovative approach works through gentle light energy or radio frequency ablation to help lessen the presence of hyperpigmentation resulting from melasma. Schedule a skin evaluation at our office to discover if laser melasma treatment might help elevate your self-confidence and enhance the appearance your skin.
Melasma Treatment FAQ
What causes melasma?
Melasma-induced hyperpigmentation can occur anytime throughout an individual's life. It is commonly believed to be caused by hormones, including those that accompany pregnancy and birth control medications. Additional factors that are often associated with melasma include UV damage, stress, and genetics.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
With the Harmony XL PRO laser, we can use a either a combination of intense pulse light therapy or radio frequency ablation to direct the energy into melasmic patches on the top layer of your skin. The treatment will effectively work to break down hyperpigmentation, which can be absorbed by your body. Although pigmented areas might take on a darker appearance at first, they will likely become less noticeable over the course of a week.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
Even though laser therapies can work to reduce the look of melasma, new gray, brown, or tan spots could emerge over time. A number of sessions may be recommended to help improve your outcomes.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At Brentwood Skin Clinic, the cost of laser melasma treatment is determined based on individual skin conditions. We will design a treatment program to help fit your goals and discuss the convenient payment options taken at our Nashville, TN practice.
Brentwood Skin Clinic Reviews
I recommend this place 1000%. If you want the most knowledgeable dermatologist who is also empathetic and takes the time you need with him then don’t look anywhere else. Dr. Austin Mitchell is the best! 👏🏻
Very awesome and friendly staff. Everyone greeted me, made sure I felt comfortable, and took care of everything I asked them to do. Will definitely be back if I need more things looked at.
This place is organized, efficient, and friendly. I only have positive things to say about my experience here. If you're looking for a dermatologist in the Nashville area, you'd be making the right decision in choosing Dr. Mitchell!
Had a concern regarding a small bumpy scar on my leg. Visited based on the Google reviews. Reputation is well earned! Dr. Mitchell was knowledgeable and personable. Took care of my issue that day and his office followed up with me when the standard biopsy came back with good news! Highly recommend!
