Melasma Treatment

Melasma is a common skin pigment disorder that causes facial hyperpigmentation and is an over-response of the body’s natural pigmentation ability. Melasma triggers include sun, heat independent of the sun, hormonal changes, and genetic factors. UV exposure from the sun is a leading trigger of melasma, so it is imperative to avoid excessive sunlight and heat and to wear sunblock, which has UVA, UVB, and infrared protection. Statistically, women from ethnic backgrounds with increased natural pigmentation are most prone. There is no cure for melasma, but preventative measures and treatments can reduce or lighten your spots. Helpful treatments include sun precautions, pigment lightening creams such as our Even & Correct Advanced Brightening Cream, retinol, and chemical and laser peels as needed.

Advanced Treatment Options for Melasma

Here at Gambhir Cosmetic Medicine, addressing melasma involves tailored approaches to ensure effective results. We highly recommend laser resurfacing and chemical peels as advanced treatment options for melasma. These procedures can be used independently or combined for more dramatic and comprehensive results. Our experienced team will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your specific melasma concerns, providing a path towards clearer and more even-toned skin.


Before & After

Laser resurfacing is a highly effective cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and texture. During this minimally invasive treatment, a high-intensity laser targets and precisely removes damaged or aged skin layers. This process stimulates collagen production, promoting the growth of fresh, healthy skin cells. Laser resurfacing is renowned for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, age spots, and acne scars. It can be tailored to treat specific areas of concern on the face, neck, chest, or hands, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. With minimal downtime and long-lasting results, laser resurfacing is popular for those seeking skin rejuvenation and a refreshed complexion.
Chemical peels are another effective way of lightening areas of melasma. We offer a variety of strengths, from a very light spa-level peel to a deep medical-grade chemical peel. Chemical peels cause the top layers of cells to peel off, exposing a new layer of undamaged skin with a more even color. A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and remove damaged outer layers. This process encourages the growth of new skin cells, resulting in a smoother, more even complexion. The depth of the peel can vary, with lighter peels providing subtle improvements and deeper peels targeting more severe issues. After the treatment, the skin may temporarily appear red or flaky, followed by peeling before revealing a fresher, more youthful appearance.

Recovery: Your New Life Without the Spots

The recovery process after a chemical peel or laser treatment typically involves some common experiences. After the procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Depending on the depth of the peel or the intensity of the laser, these side effects can vary in severity. In the days following the treatment, your skin will likely start peeling or flaking, a natural part of the exfoliation process.
It’s essential to keep your skin moisturized and protected from the sun during this phase. As your skin heals and regenerates, you’ll notice an improvement in texture, tone, and overall appearance. While recovery times can vary, most individuals can resume their regular activities within a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the specific procedure.
