Melasma
Procedure

Sun exposure and hormonal changes trigger melasma, which presents itself as pigmented patches of skin. Most patients get melasma on their cheeks, nose, forehead and upper lip, although it can also show up in other sun-exposed areas, such as the neck, chest and forearms.

VI Peel

The VI Peel is an excellent option for those who would benefit not only from the lightening of their melasma but also needing some dull skin removed for a more fresh look. The VI Peel does not have a terrible amount of peeling but you do flake on days 3-5 normally starting around the nose and mouth and ending at the hairline. Multiple sessions may be necessary.

Cosmelan Peel

The Cosmelan peel is the “mother of all melasma peels.” A tan-colored mask is applied in-office and the patients are instructed to leave this mask on for 8-10 hours. That night, the patient washes the mask off and uses a light moisturizer before bed. Peeling will begin on day 3 and can last 4-5 days. By day 10, most people will have stopped peeling. At this time, the patient will begin to apply Cosmelan 2 at home on the areas that have some remaining pigment. This will continue the peeling process only on the areas that are still affected. Once the pigment has fully resolved, a custom regimen including Vitamin C, retinol, and SPF will be recommended by our staff.

PicoFocus Laser

The Picosure laser is the only laser Dr. Nazarian recommends for more pigmented skin types. The Picofocus tip on this laser is meant for pigment reduction on all skin types and colors. At times, Dr. Nazarian may recommend the use of this laser in conjunction with the peels and medical-grade skincare products mentioned above. No one person is like another and there is no cookie-cutter approach to melasma. But rest assured, it is a passion.
