Introduction to Melasma Treatments

Many people don’t know why they have gray or brown patches on their skin. It can show up out of the blue for women during and after pregnancy, or it can be triggered by excessive sun exposure. Melasma is not as common as rosacea but affects significantly more women than men and, particularly, people with darker skin complexions. At Renu Medispa in Eagle, ID, we offer Melasma treatments to help reduce its appearance to create confidence and more pristine skin.

What is Melasma?

Melasma is a hereditary condition caused when the color pigments in the skin are over-productive meaning they do their jobs too well. People of color have more active “melanocytes” than people with lighter skin, so that explains why the condition is more prevalent in North African, African-American, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, or Mediterranean populations. Melasma is believed to be hormone-related since both pregnancy and oral contraceptives seem to make women more prone to melasma.

Certain people with melasma experience brown or gray-brown spots most commonly around areas of the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Some people do see patches on the forearms or neck. Thankfully, most people don’t report any pain with the patches, but of course, would prefer not to have the appearance of blotches.

Just like rosacea, we can help our clients treat their uneven skin tones using several different laser and skin health procedures. We can work with the recommendation of a dermatologist and help you put together an effective treatment program as well as provide you with the highest quality products to protect and nourish your skin between and after laser treatments. We offer a wide range of topical cosmeceuticals and in-house treatment options to encourage skin lightening and decrease inflammation associated with pigmentation.

There are many ways to treat Melasma, and at Renu Medispa, we want to help you find the best option for you! If you would like to learn more about the individual ways to treat your Melasma, please refer to these pages for additional information:
