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.

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 does laser treatment for melasma work?

When utilizing the Harmony XL PRO ClearLift laser, we will focus a fractionated beam of light into hyperpigmentation patches on the surface of your skin. The laser light will effectively help to break down hyperpigmentation, allowing it to be absorbed naturally by your body. Treating melasma usually requires multiple treatments.

Does melasma come back after laser treatment?

While laser options can help minimize the appearance of melasma, more gray, brown, or tan patches could appear over time. Several procedures could be planned to help perserve your outcomes.

What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?

At PBD Aesthetics, the price of laser melasma treatment is based on the number of sessions required to achieve the best results. Our staff will create a treatment program to help fit your goals and explain the payment choices accepted at our Phoenix, AZ facility.
