Melasma is a skin condition characterized by dark spots or hyperpigmentation. Some of the most common causes of melasma include sun exposure, genetics, hormones and inflammation. Some of the most effective treatments of melasma are a combination of prescription strength hydroquinone and topical retina a cream. Clients begin to see results after approximately six months of use. It is highly recommended to avoid direct sun exposure while using these products.
Melasma can also be treated by trying to balance your hormones. It can also be eradicated with laser skin resurfacing, although this treatment can require several fraxel laser San Diego sessions to achieve desired results.
