Melasma is a dark discoloration, either brown or grey, of the skin that occurs to the sun-exposed part of your face like the cheeks, forehead, and upper lip. Preventing melasma is easy; use SPF on your face every day rain or shine. Avoid too much sun and heat, but if you are exposed and experience the dark brown or gray spots, there are treatments you can do.
Lasers are used in precise ways, and energy is delivered to your skin that changes the molecular structure of melanin. After treatment, the immune system realizes there are altered, and foreign melanin particles. The immune system goes to work to dissolve away the altered melanin, and the laser doesn’t remove your melanin but triggers your physiology to do the work. Your results are smooth and even-toned skin.
