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.

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! 👏🏻

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!
