With over 200 sun-filled days each year, central Florida is no stranger to the sun. Unfortunately, the sun is a major contributing factor to a skin condition called melasma. Melasma causes dark, discolored patches on the skin and is most common in women and those with darker skin tones. A variation known as chloasma can also afflict pregnant women. Melasma most often appears as symmetrical, brownish colored patches on the cheeks, forehead, nose bridge, and chin. These patches are not painful or result in any physical harm to the skin, but it can cause you to feel self-conscious about the way your skin looks.
In the past, melasma treatment centered around daily sunscreen use as well as topical bleaching creams or chemical peels. Now studies are showing that melasma can be effectively treated with lasers, such as the Lutronic Spectra, that can target both the epidermal and dermal pigmented layers of the skin. The Lutronic Spectra offers a unique technological advantage in the treatment of this challenging condition that has always been exceedingly difficult to manage and is the first short-pulse laser to earn FDA clearance for melasma treatment.
