What is Melasma?
Countless patients deal with melasma at some point during their lifetime, which occurs when uneven blotches of dark skin show up on the face, forearms, and neck. These gray, tan, or brown pigmented areas often appear evenly around the brow, cheeks, nose, chin or upper lip. Melasma develops more frequently among ladies with darker skin colors, and is thought to be triggered by sun damage or hormones, like those associated with pregnancy and menopause. Our team performs melasma treatment at Dolly Vita Aesthetics in Trafalgar, IN with the Harmony XL PRO laser from Alma. This minimally invasive option uses powerful light energy to help diminish the visibility of the dark pigmented areas that are related to melasma. Schedule an appointment at our facility to learn whether laser melasma treatment can help increase your self-confidence and refresh your skin tone and appearance.

What causes melasma?
Melasma can occur throughout all stages of life. It is commonly thought to be the result of hormonal changes, like those that occur with pregnancy and birth control pills. Other causes that are generally connected to melasma include sun damage, stress, and a genetic predisposition.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
When utilizing the Harmony XL PRO laser, our team will direct a healing light energy into melasmic spots on the top layer of your skin. The laser will gently work to break down pigmentation so that it can then be absorbed naturally by the body. Even though these spots may become darker initially, they should fade after seven days.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
Although laser treatments can help minimize the appearance of melasma, more tan, brown, or gray spots could occur over time. Routine treatment sessions may be planned to help prolong your outcomes.
How much does laser melasma treatment cost?
At Dolly Vita Aesthetics, the cost of melasma treatment with lasers varies based on personal needs. We will develop a treatment program to help target your goals and discuss payment during your first appointment.
