Melasma and its treatments are not talked about enough—many people don’t even know what melasma is. That’s why we are taking the time to tell you all about it. Keep reading to learn about melasma treatment in Memphis at A Beautiful You Medical Spa.

What Is Melasma?

Melasma is a skin condition that results in patches of skin that are darker than your overall skin tone. It is most often found in women and those with a medium to dark skin tone. These spots usually appear on the face, but they can occur on the arms, neck, and other areas of the body.

You are most likely to develop melasma during pregnancy because of a shift in your hormones. It is commonly known as “pregnancy mask.” For many people, melasma will go away after pregnancy, but this is not always the case.

There is no cure for melasma, but there are ways to treat and manage it. At A Beautiful You, we offer a variety of melasma treatments.

What Treatments Can Help Manage Melasma?

  • Laser skin resurfacing with the Alma® Pixel Perfect™
  • Laser skin resurfacing with the Venus Viva MD™
  • ClearLift
  • Chemical peels
  • Treatment with intense pulsed light (IPL)
  • Microneedling

Can Melasma Return After Treatment?

Yes, melasma can return after laser treatment because it’s a chronic condition. We can lighten melasma to where hyperpigmentation is no longer visible, but regular maintenance is required to see long-lasting improvements.

Melasma recurrence is most common in people with darker skin tones. The results from melasma treatment usually last up to 3 months. Melasma has no cure as of today, but we can treat, manage, and minimize it at A Beautiful You Medical Spa.
