WHAT IS MELASMA?
Many people develop melasma at some point during their lifetime, which happens when irregular areas of dark skin appear on the face, neck, and forearms. These gray, tan, or brown pigmented areas often develop evenly around the forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, or upper lip. Melasma is found more frequently among ladies with darker skin tones and may be triggered by sun damage or hormonal changes, such as those that occur during menopause and pregnancy. Our team offers melasma treatment at Midwest Sleep & Wellness with Harmony XL PRO laser technology from Alma. This minimally invasive option utilizes gentle laser energy to help minimize the presence of hyperpigmentation occurring in melasma. Reserve a skin evaluation at our Gurnee, IL facility to discover whether melasma treatment with lasers might help restore your self-confidence and renew your skin tone and appearance!
What causes melasma?
As a common skin condition, melasma can occur anytime throughout your life. It is generally believed to be caused by hormonal changes, including those that accompany birth control medications and pregnancy. Other causes that are generally connected to melasma are sun damage, stress, and a genetic predisposition.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
When using the Harmony XL PRO laser handpiece, your technician will focus healing, light-based energy into darkly pigmented areas on the surface of your skin. The light will gently help to diminish melanin (the substance that causes discoloration), which can be absorbed naturally by the body. While these areas could become darker at first, they will most likely become less noticeable over the course of seven days.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At Midwest Sleep & Wellness, the price of laser melasma treatment varies according to personal skin issues. Our team will create a treatment strategy to help target your desired outcomes and explain the simple payment methods accepted at our Gurnee, IL facility.
