Dark Spots & Melasma

At The Skin Clinic, we believe that clear skin is the ultimate expression of skin rejuvenation. Our primary goal is to help our clients achieve skin that is so flawless that they no longer feel the need for makeup. The most common forms of skin discoloration include age spots, also known as sunspots or lentigines, as well as freckles. These spots are typically caused by overexposure to sunlight and are rarely due to genetic factors. Fortunately, our state-of-the-art lasers are highly effective in removing these pigmented lesions in just one or two sessions.

Melasma, on the other hand, can be more challenging to treat. This common condition affects many women and is characterized by the appearance of pigmented patches that typically appear on the face. Causes of melasma may include excessive sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations (such as those that occur during pregnancy or while taking certain oral contraceptive pills), or circulation abnormalities in the facial veins.

Our experts specialize in comprehensive melasma treatment that utilizes a range of modalities, including peels, lasers, and targeted home care, all designed to achieve sustainable clearing of the skin. However, success in treating melasma requires strict sun protection and heat avoidance as part of any treatment regimen. We often recommend a full-face laser or peeling procedure to achieve an overall improvement in the skin before targeting individual spots with precision laser treatment.
