What is Melasma?

Numerous patients deal with melasma at times in their lives, which happens when irregular patches of darkened skin appear on the face, neck, and forearms. These gray, tan, or brown spots often occur symmetrically on the forehead, nose, cheeks, upper lip, or chin. Melasma develops more frequently among females with darker skin tones and may be triggered by UV exposure or hormones, like those that occur during pregnancy and menopause. Nurse practitioner Sarah Pack offers melasma treatment with Harmony® XL PRO laser technology from Alma. This innovative procedure works through gentle laser energy to help reduce the visibility of pigmented areas resulting from melasma. Reserve a skin evaluation at Montana Skin & Laser and Center for Weight Management in Great Falls, MT to discover whether laser treatment for melasma can help increase your self-confidence and renew your skin's appearance.

Laser Melasma Treatment FAQ

What causes melasma?

Melasma-induced hyperpigmentation can occur anytime throughout a person's life. It is most commonly thought to be the result of hormones, such as those that occur with birth control medications and pregnancy. Other sources that are commonly related to melasma include damage from UV rays, stress, and familial history.

How does laser treatment for melasma work?

During treatment with Harmony XL PRO laser technology, our team will focus a healing energy beam into darkly pigmented areas on the top layer of your skin. The light will effectively work to break down melanin (the substance that causes discoloration), allowing it to be absorbed naturally by your body. Although pigmented areas might take on a darker appearance at first, they will likely become less noticeable over the course of a week.

Does melasma come back after laser treatment?

Although laser procedures can work to reduce the look of melasma, other tan, brown, or gray spots might occur as time goes on. A series of treatments might be planned to help preserve your results.

What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?

At Montana Skin & Laser and Center for Weight Management, the cost of melasma treatment with lasers is determined based on individual skin issues. Our experts will tailor a treatment strategy to help target your goals and talk with you about the simple payment methods accepted at our Great Falls, MT facility.
