Melasma in Springfield, MO
What Is Melasma?
Melasma, sometimes known as chloasma, is characterized by irregular patches of dark skin that arise on the face or forearms. These tan or brownish spots typically occur evenly over the brow, nose, cheeks, or upper lip. The appearance of melasma distinguishes it from other conditions that lead to dark patches on the skin. Melasma is a common condition and is found more often in females. It may be caused by sun damage or by hormonal fluctuations, such as with pregnancy and menopause. It also occurs more often in individuals with darker skin tones. At Aesthetic Med Studio, we specialize in a variety of techniques to reduce the appearance of melasma while rejuvenating the skin, creating a brighter, more even complexion. Every person's case is unique so schedule a melasma consultation at our Springfield, MO practice to learn more about your condition and how we can help.
How Do You Treat Melasma?
We offer several types of melasma treatments at Aesthetic Med Studio, including:
- Melasma Peel: A melasma peel suppresses melanin production in the skin, reversing discoloration.
- MicroLaserPeel®: This erbium laser treatment precisely and gently removes the damaged outer layers of skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, enlarged pores, and melasma.
- BroadBand Light™ Therapy: Forever Young BBL™ uses powerful pulses of light in specially selected wavelengths to target cosmetic imperfections and stimulate collagen production for smoother, rejuvenated skin.
The approach we use for your treatment will depend on your skin's health, the extent of your melasma, and your own goals.
What Causes Melasma?
There's a lot we still don't know about the causes of melasma, but there are certain factors that seem to make you more prone to developing it, including:
- Hormonal changes
- Family history
- Side effects of some medications
- Overexposure to sunlight
Aesthetic Med Studio Reviews
The space is beautiful and the people are very friendly! Feels like you’re coming to visit your friends!
My experiences at Aesthetic Med Studio are always wonderful. Samantha took her time and made sure to explain everything she was doing during my chemical peel/facial. I will always recommend this studio to my friends and family!
Everyone was extremely nice and informative! It was a great experience!
I had the edge laser treatment done today. Upon arrival I was taken back to the procedure room within a minute of sitting down. The staff was kind and accommodating. The young lady that performed my procedure, explained everything and offered to answer any questions that I had. The procedure took less than 12 minutes, but she was very empathetic and kind during the procedure. She accurately, as of right now (as of 2 hours after), explained the aftercare process. They explain there is different settings to the edge, laser treatment, which accommodate the number of days you have for recovery. I go back to work on Wednesday, 1/10. I will update on the healing and aftercare process next week.
The staff was kind and professional. Answered all my questions and put me at ease.
