What is Melasma Treatment?
Melasma is a skin condition that is characterized by brown patches of skin on the face. Melasma is often caused by sun exposure, but it can also develop due to hormonal changes. For this reason, melasma is commonly experienced during pregnancy. Symptoms usually fade after pregnancy, but for some patients, melasma can continue to be an unwanted cosmetic feature. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, we offer comprehensive melasma treatment that includes many effective treatment techniques.
How Much Does Melasma Treatment Cost?
The cost of your melasma treatment at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates can vary, and may be covered by health insurance. If this is the case, we will determine your coverage during your consultation in order to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
What is Involved in Melasma Treatment?
At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, our melasma treatment is a medical-grade skin care regimen that targets darkened or damaged skin cells and exfoliates them to reveal healthy, radiant skin underneath. This program involves microdermabrasion, as well as chemical peels and facials such as the VI® Peel.
When Will I Notice Results from My Melasma Treatment?
Many patients will notice immediate improvements after their melasma treatment. Since melasma treatment techniques aim to gently exfoliate the affected skin, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
