Melasma Treatment, Pacific Heights, San Francisco*
Get In Touch
This lovely patient was able to put her melasma into remission with a treatment plan including RX topical skincare, chemical peels and Vascular laser. It's important to remember, melasma is never cured, rather it is chronic and life-long. Once our MDs or PA-C have designed a treatment plan and melasma is in remission, our BACD nurses collaborate beautifully with our doctors to maintain lifelong results. Medium to deeper skin tones have a higher propensity for post-inflammatory pigmentation or even scarring with the wrong or "too fast" treatments. It is a common misconception pigment lasers (IPL, Pico, Alex, Fraxel) help melasma. They only provide a temporary result, but can actually worsen melasma due to their heat components. Our board-certified dermatologists and PA-C carefully customize treatment plans selecting specific laser settings, chemical peel strength and time to achieve gorgeous results, as safely as possible.
