Looking for Melasma Treatments in Dallas? Check Out These Options

Melasma is one of the most common skin conditions we treat at Spa in the City. Looking for the best melasma treatments in Dallas? Learn more about melasma and our treatment options below. 

Causes of melasma 

Melasma is especially common in women–love that for us! Seriously, around 90% of those with melasma are women. 

This number makes sense because hormonal changes are believed to be the primary cause of melasma, especially during pregnancy. 15 to 50% of pregnant women experience it; because of its appearance primarily around the nose and cheek area, melasma is colloquially known as “pregnancy mask.” Other common causes are certain types of medications, birth control, genetics, and sun exposure.

What it looks like

Melasma color ranges from light to dark brown and can appear on your face, shoulders, neck, forearms–basically anywhere exposed to the most sunlight. It appears in small or larger unraised patches.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can help soften a roughly textured surface, improve dull skin, and add moisture to dry cells. These peels can counteract sun-damaged skin and pre-cancerous cells it may contain. A chemical peel also creates an even skin tone by lightening freckles, sun damage, age spots, and blotchy skin caused by certain medications.

Treatable conditions:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne & acne scars
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rough texture
  • Age spots
  • Melasma

Clear + Brilliant

The laser energy used in Clear + Brilliant treatments can renew the texture of dry or rough surface skin, reduce large pores, smooth acne scars, and improve tone. 

Treatable conditions:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough texture
  • Melasma

While the laser damages compromised collagen and other proteins that clutter the deepest layers, it also opens the epidermis to allow nutrient-infused serums to work their magic.

Pixel Laser

The Pixel laser is a deeply penetrating laser treatment that visibly improves a variety of skin concerns. In 2006, Pixel by Alma became the first FDA-approved ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing method that was as gentle as a non-ablative laser with just a few days of social downtime for patients.

Treatable conditions:

  • Acne scarring and depressions
  • Fine to moderate lines and crepey wrinkles
  • Hyper-pigmentation and Melasma
  • Age spots
  • Years of sun damage
  • Large, visible pore size
  • Roughly textured skin

Most laser systems cap at 1064nm which is less than half the strength of the Pixel; now you can get through to the deepest, most damaged sections of the dermis to begin the necessary restructuring.
