Melasma Treatment Options at Lougheed Laser Center

Comprehensive Understanding of Melasma

At Lougheed Laser Center, situated in the heart of Lougheed Town Centre - Burnaby, BC, we are committed to providing you with a deep understanding of Melasma. This common skin problem manifests as brown or grey-brown patches, primarily on the face. Most people experience it on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, and chin, but it can appear anywhere sun exposure is a factor. Females are more susceptible than males and hormonal changes often trigger Melasma.

Causes of Melasma

Several factors can result in Melasma, including:

1. Hormonal changes: Pregnancy often triggers Melasma due to hormonal fluctuations.
2. Sun damage: The prolific ultraviolet (UV) light can accelerate the production of melanin, leading to Melasma.
3. Skin care products: Formulations that irritate the skin can make Melasma more likely.

Effective treatment for Melasma at Lougheed Laser Center

Melasma is a persistent condition but does not have to be a permanent one. At Lougheed Laser Center, we offer effective treatments designed specifically for this skin ailment. Our expert team evaluates the type and extent of your Melasma to formulate a customised treatment plan that will best serve your unique needs.

Here are some of the treatments available at our clinic:

1. Laser treatments: Using sophisticated laser technology, we're able to break down the excess pigment and improve the overall skin tone.
2. Topical creams: We have a range of medicated creams that can lighten the skin.
3. Chemical peels: A peel specifically designed for Melasma can help remove the damaged skin cells and stimulate regrowth.  

Post-Treatment Measures

After your treatment, we provide refined guidelines for managing your skin. Protecting yourself from sun exposure is key to preventing Melasma from recurring. Regular use of a broad-spectrum sunblock and wearing hats when outdoors can make a major difference.

Let's partner up on this journey to rejuvenate your skin and help you regain your confidence lost due to Melasma. Reach out to the Lougheed Laser Center today.
