Melasma Laser Treatment
Melasma Laser Treatment
Melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark, discolored patches to appear on the skin. It is most commonly found on the face, particularly on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and upper lip. Melasma is more common in women, especially during pregnancy or when taking certain medications.
One treatment option for melasma is laser treatment using a Q-switched laser. Q-switched lasers produce high-energy, short-pulsed laser beams that can target and destroy pigment-producing cells in the skin. This can help to lighten or remove the dark, discolored patches associated with melasma.
Q-switched laser treatment for melasma is typically performed in a healthcare provider's office or a laser clinic. The procedure is relatively quick, taking anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. A local anesthetic may be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort.
After the procedure, the skin may be red and swollen, and there may be some mild discomfort or itching. Cool compresses and over-the-counter pain medication can help to alleviate these symptoms. It is important to avoid sun exposure and to use sunscreen and protective clothing after the procedure, as the skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
Multiple laser treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results, and maintenance treatments may be required to keep the skin clear. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of Q-switched laser treatment for melasma with a healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
In conclusion, melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark, discolored patches to appear on the skin. Q-switched laser treatment is a option for treating melasma, using high-energy, short-pulsed laser beams to target and destroy pigment-producing cells in the skin. The procedure is relatively quick and may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with a healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

Do you give 100% guarantee?
No doctor can give 100% guarantee that the treatment or surgery would be beneficial for the patient. For that matter, no guarantee is given by any doctor or surgeon that the patient would be "cured".
Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure should ensure they are informed enough to understand the limitations and risks of any procedure. Remember, no procedure is 100% risk free and no surgeon can give a 100% guarantee of the results.
The only assurance which a doctor can give or can be understood to have given by implication is that he is possessed of the requisite skill in that branch of profession which he is practicing and while undertaking the performance of the task entrusted to him he would be exercising his skill with reasonable competence.
Unless the circumstances are exceptional, it is advisable to avoid surgery if you have recently experienced major life events such as moving house, changing job, losing a loved one, the break-up of a relationship or the arrival of children. Undergoing cosmetic surgery results in emotional changes as well as physical ones, so it’s wise to choose a time when there aren’t other stressful events going on in your life.
How many sessions do I require?
The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.
While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
