Professionals tailor treatments for melasma to Cleveland patients’ unique needs

Not all brown spots are the same, different types of hyperpigmentation require varied approaches. Treatments for melasma in the Cleveland area are as diverse as the condition’s causes. Seriously Skin has light-based or exfoliating therapies, and pharmaceutical-grade skin care products designed to effectively, safely, and comfortably treat your discoloration.

The telltale signs

Unlike age spots or freckles that are typically round and brown, melasma generally looks less like spots and more like brown or gray-brown splotches. They often appear on the cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, and upper lip. It’s important to distinguish brown spots or splotches from similar-looking cancers, which tend to evolve, feature many colors and scalloped borders, and itch or bleed.

The many causes

Like age spots, exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun or tanning beds can trigger melasma. Some irritating skin care products and cosmetics can make melasma worse. The condition is most often associated with hormonal changes brought on by birth control pills, hormone therapies, puberty, or pregnancy. Only 10 percent of melasma sufferers are men. In fact, you may have heard the patches referred to as the “mask of pregnancy,” and there is even a scientific term for melasma among pregnant women: chloasma.

The many treatments

After identifying the true nature of your hyperpigmentation with an evaluation, Seriously Skin’s professionals will tailor a treatment approach that addresses unique needs.

Pharmaceutical-grade skin care products may be combined with therapies. Generally, procedures such as SilkPeel Dermalinfusion gently lift outermost layers of skin gently and in a controlled, precise manner. As the damaged skin is removed, it makes way for a new and clear complexion.

Several advanced lasers and light-based therapies are also available to resurface the skin, removing or improving the appearance of melasma. Schedule a consultation today at our Chagrin Falls office. Call (440) 499-7145
