Melasma Treatment

Melasma is a common skin disorder in which dark spots and discolouration occur. It is also known as hyperpigmentation. Melasma is caused due to overproduction of melanin in the body. The melanocytes produce melanin. Sometimes the melanocytes work abnormally and produce excessive melanin due to sunlight exposure or hormonal changes. It gives rise to melasma. If you are suffering from melasma, then consider Melasma Treatment in Islamabad. Learn more about the treatment and causes of melasma by reading the article.

Aim of the Treatment:

The aim of the treatment is to smooth out the texture and tone of the skin. It also eliminates hyperpigmentation, freckles and blemishes from the skin. You will get rid of sunspots and melasma after a few sessions of the treatment. 

Causes of Melasma:

There are various causes of melasma. Some of them are:

  • Genetics:

Some people can get melasma due to family history. If any of your family members have melasma, there is an increased risk of melasma then you should take all the precautionary measures to avoid it.

  • Hormonal Imbalance:

Increased production of the hormones may contribute to the production of melanin. As a result, dark patches and spots appear on the skin.

  • Colour of the Skin:

If you have dark or olive-coloured skin, then there is more chance that you will get melasma. On the other hand, light-coloured people have a very less chance of getting melasma.

  • Sun exposure:

Excessive sun exposure is the main cause of melasma. The sun’s rays increase the production of melanocytes, and you can get melasma. So it is important to apply SPF before going out in the sun.

  • Pregnancy:

There is a 70 to 80 percent chance that pregnancy will cause melasma. It usually occurs in the second and third semesters due to increased production of oestrogen and progesterone.

During the initial consultation, the dermatologist examines your skin condition and will give you certain guidelines. During this time, you must tell the doctor about your medical conditions or any type of skin allergies. Some instructions given by the best dermatologist are as follows:

  • Avoid going in the direct sunlight before two weeks of the treatment
  • Do not apply makeup products 
  • Do not use retinoids and other facial products
  • Wear a hat or umbrella before going out in the sun.

Laser Treatment Procedure:

All these laser treatments are very effective, and you will get rid of melasma in just a few sessions. The dermatologist starts by applying a numbing cream or cooling gel to minimise the stinking sensation or any type of discomfort. The laser will break the abnormal cells, and the skin’s outer layer will eventually peel off.

Other Treatment Options:

Some other techniques for melasma treatment are:

  • Chemical peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Light therapy
  • dermabrasion
  • topical creams
