How Can I Get Rid of Melasma?

December 3, 2021

Melasma is one of the most stubborn skin conditions. If you suffer from any form of skin discoloration, you are probably well aware that the DIY lemon juice lightening treatments and even some of the most powerful topical products don’t always deliver the kind of results you’ve been hoping for. At Medwin Family Medicine and Rehab, with offices in Brownsville and Sugar Land, TX, we offer different professional skin care treatments that can help lighten and eventually eliminate dark spots.

How Can I Get Rid of Melasma?

If you are looking for a way to eliminate melasma, including different forms of hyperpigmentation, pregnancy mask, age spots, or dark spots, we can help. We offer different professional-grade treatments, and with the help of our experts, we can design the right treatment plan for you that will help you achieve a uniform and glowing complexion.

Schedule a Chemical Peel

One of the quickest and easiest ways to target melasma is scheduling a chemical peel. The right chemical peel will not only give your skin the chemical exfoliation it needs to promote optimal health and wellness, but it can also help create a more uniform skin tone.

It will dissolve the top layer of the skin and any dead skin cells to promote an increased cellular rate turnover. Whenever your body creates new skin cells, they replace those old damaged cells that are often the primary cause of those discolored spots and patches.

The Benefits of a Chemical Peel

Not only can a chemical peel improve skin discoloration, but it can also smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, and balance the complexion. One of the many benefits of a chemical peel is that it can be customized to the needs of your skin.

Some skin types can handle aggressive exfoliation; others need something a little gentler yet still effective. Our experts will evaluate your skin and choose the right peel that will address your skin discoloration and any other pressing complexion concerns.

Consider a Laser Treatment

Sometimes patients suffer from melasma that is so severe that some skincare treatments won’t improve this condition. We offer laser treatments for those who need a more potent treatment to address their skin discoloration.

The right laser treatment can break down the damaged skin cells and force the body to replace them with new, healthier cells, and as a result, you will watch your skin discoloration fade and your complexion take on a more uniform toner. An initial consultation with a skincare expert at our office will help determine if your particular form of hyperpigmentation can be best treated by laser treatment.

Schedule a Consultation With an Expert

Sometimes all it takes is a consultation with an expert to learn more about your particular skin condition and what it will take to help you reach your skin goals. When you schedule a consultation with one of the skincare experts at our office, you won’t regret it.

We can design a customized treatment plan that will target melasma on multiple fronts so that you can be free of it for good. Our experts are waiting and willing to meet with you, evaluate your skin, and develop a plan of attack that will help you achieve and maintain beautiful skin.

How To Maintain a Uniform Complexion

Invest in Professional-Grade Products 

In addition to scheduling skin care treatments to address your melasma, it’s important that you put in the work at home during your morning and evening skincare routine. If you suffer from any form of hyperpigmentation, you need to follow a skincare regimen designed to lighten the skin and help restore uniformity to your skin tone.

Professional-grade products combined with in-office skin care treatments will help combat this skin condition so that you can achieve a healthy, radiant glow. There are many different professional-grade skin care lines that have developed products specifically designed to lighten different forms of hyperpigmentation. Additionally, a good vitamin C serum can improve the appearance of your skin and help lighten dark spots.

Do the Work

Once you get your skin where you want it to be and develop a more uniform skin tone, you will need to take the necessary measures to help maintain your results. Combating melasma takes a lot of work, but once you’re finally free of this skin condition, you’ll want to do whatever it takes to maintain beautiful skin. For that reason, you must invest in a professional-grade sunscreen that will protect your skin from sun damage.

Sun damage can cause hyperpigmentation, so it’s important that you wear quality sunscreen daily to protect your skin not only from premature aging but to prevent melasma as well.

Stay Out of the Sun

In addition to wearing sunscreen, you can help maintain your treatment and skincare results by staying out of the sun. If you do find yourself exposed to the sun for any length of time, take the necessary measures to protect your skin.

Not only should you wear sunscreen, but you should wear a hat or visor, and sunglasses, as well as anything else that protects your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Taking extra precautions will go a long way in helping you achieve and maintain beautiful skin long-term.
