What is Melasma?

A number of men and women have melasma at times in their lives, which occurs when irregular areas of darkened skin appear on the face, neck, and forearms. These tan, gray, or brown spots generally appear symmetrically over the brow, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. Melasma appears more frequently among females with darker skin types and may be due to UV damage or hormones, such as those associated with pregnancy and menopause. Board-certified physician Dr. Kia Mitchell treats melasma at her upscale Jacksonville, FL office with Alma Harmony XL PRO laser technology. This advanced technology employs powerful light energy to help diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration resulting from melasma.

It's essential for candidates to have realistic expectations and to understand that while the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser technology can significantly improve skin tone, maintenance treatments may be necessary.

How Does Laser Melasma Treatment Work?

Laser melasma treatment works by using targeted light energy to break down excess melanin in the skin, which causes the dark patches associated with melasma. The Harmony XL Pro laser emits precise wavelengths that penetrate the skin to reach and fragment the melanin without damaging surrounding tissues. Over time, the body naturally absorbs and eliminates these fragments, leading to a more even skin tone. Multiple sessions at Limitless Me Wellness are typically required for optimal results, and the procedure involves minimal downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes melasma?

Melasma can occur throughout all stages of life in both men and women, although more common in women. It is generally believed to be caused by hormonal fluctuations, such as those that are experienced with birth control pills and pregnancy. Less prevalent sources that are often related to melasma are sun damage, stress, and genetics.

How does laser treatment for melasma work?

During treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser, Dr. Mitchell will focus a powerful beam of light into targeted areas on the skin. The laser will effectively help to break down hyperpigmentation, which can then be absorbed by your body. Although pigmented areas could become darker at first, they will most likely fade after a week or so.

Does melasma come back after laser treatment?

Even though laser procedures can work to minimize the look of melasma, more pigmented patches could develop in the future. Periodic treatment sessions could be suggested to help maintain your results.
