Melasma is a condition that can be a short-term or long-term issue for many patients in the Brooklyn, New York area. This discoloration of the skin is often associated with hormonal imbalances. That is how the condition also got its name, “the mask of pregnancy,” as many pregnant women will notice these changes in their skin during hormone shifts. While it sometimes resolves on its own, other patients may need some help addressing the problem and bringing the skin complexion back to its original state. Melasma treatment is readily available with our team at Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics. We encourage patients to find out more about this condition, get a proper diagnosis, and discuss possible treatments.
What are some treatment options for melasma?
Patients of Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics know that our practice is dedicated to ensuring there are options available for patients seeking cosmetic or medical dermatology solutions. We are proud to offer several methods for treating melasma in new and returning patients at the facility. Below are just a few of the methodologies we may utilize when improving a patient’s skin appearance and health:
- VI peel
- Spectra Laser
- Intense Pulsed Light(IPL)/Broadband Light (BBL)
In addition to providing services in our practice to clear the skin and reduce the appearance and severity of melasma, our medical providers also educate patients on how to improve their skin at home with a proper skincare routine. The products patients use might be aggravating certain conditions for individuals and making these issues worse. By choosing the right cleanser, moisturizer, toner, and makeup, many patients can alleviate this and other skin concerns, including rosacea and acne.
