Laser Skin Resurfacing for Melasma

Melasma is sometimes referred to as "the mask of pregnancy", and consists of brown spots of pigmentation that usually occur around the eyes. Using laser skin resurfacing for melasma allows patients to remove these pigment spots, returning their skin to pre-pregnancy clarity. Although not a permanent solution, laser skin resurfacing for melasma can greatly improve the appearance of the skin, and is especially popular if the pigmentation occurs on the face or other highly visible area. Additionally, laser skin resurfacing for melasma can concentrate on treating a specific portion of the face, or can be performed on the entire face, so that the laser skin resurfacing for melasma can end up treating other imperfections and irregularities in pigment and texture.

A laser skin resurfacing for melasma requires what is known as a "medium depth" resurfacing, which can also make permanent improvements in problems such as wrinkles and fine lines. Laser skin resurfacing for melasma generally only requires a single procedure, followed by approximately one week of healing time. This procedure is becoming increasing popular, as laser skin resurfacing for melasma produces dramatic results with a single treatment and relatively short healing time. The effects of laser skin resurfacing for melasma are long-lasting, although not permanent, and most patients opt for additional courses of treatment using laser skin resurfacing for melasma in order to maintain their results. The procedures are usually repeated every year or two, depending upon the individual.

The lasers used in laser skin resurfacing for melasma deliver brief high-energy beams of light to remove the outermost layers of damaged skin, tighten collagen, and creates a more youthful appearance.
