Melasma Treatment

Laser Melasma Treatment Toronto

Melasma, also known as chloasma faciei (dermatology), is a disorder of cutaneous pigmentation stimulated by estrogen. Though it does not pose any health risk, it can be cosmetically embarrassing. Q Esthetics is one of the first laser clinics that practise laser melasma treatment in the Greater Toronto Area.

Laser Melasma Treatment

Often times, pigmentation issues caused by melasma can be stubborn and quite difficult to treat. In fact, if treated improperly, the condition may worsen. However, several effective treatment options have been available over the years. More recently, fractional laser resurfacing became the first light-based technology approved by the FDA for the melasma treatment.

In our practice at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we have also found that the Q-switched Yag laser, intense pulsed light (IPL), chemical peels and microdermabrasion may also help to improve melasma of different cutaneous layers*.

Post-treatment of Melasma

UV radiation is a main factor that aggravates melasma, therefore sunlight protection is essential for melasma patients. At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we recommend the Revision Intellishade SPF 45 sunscreen. This revolutionary tinted moisturizer protects the skin from both UVA & UVB rays, dramatically alters skin texture, and improves the overall appearance of the skin. Protective clothing and hats are also highly recommended. Some melasma patients should discuss alternative options of oral contraceptive with their gynecologists, as it may significantly increase the chance of recurrence*.
