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.
