What Is Melasma?
Melasma is a common ailment, appearing as uneven patches of darkened skin on the face, neck, and forearms. These tan, gray, or brown spots generally occur evenly around the brow, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. Melasma is found more often among women with darker skin and is thought to be triggered by sun damage or hormones, like those associated with menopause and pregnancy. Our laser melasma treatments at PBD Aesthetics safely remove melasma with Alma Harmony XL PRO laser technology.

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes melasma?
Melasma-induced hyperpigmentation can occur throughout all stages of life. It is generally thought to be caused by hormonal fluctuations, including those that occur with pregnancy and birth control pills. Less common sources that are typically associated with melasma include sun exposure, stress, and familial history.
How do laser melasma treatments work?
Our laser treatments utilize the Harmony XL PRO ClearLift laser, which focuses a beam of light into hyperpigmentation patches on the surface of the skin. The laser light effectively helps to break down hyperpigmentation, allowing it to be absorbed naturally by the body. Treatments are safe and convenient, but treating melasma usually requires multiple treatments.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
While laser melasma treatments help to minimize the appearance of melasma, more gray, brown, or tan patches could appear over time. Additional procedures may be required to preserve optimally clear-looking skin.
What do laser melasma treatments cost?
At PBD Aesthetics, the price of laser melasma treatments is based on the number of sessions required to achieve the desired results. Our staff will create a treatment program to help fit your goals and explain the payment choices accepted at our Phoenix, AZ facility.
