What is melasma and what is the reason behind its occurrence?

Melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark, discolored patches on the skin. It primarily affects the face, but it can also occur in other areas of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun, such as the neck and forearms. Melasma is more commonly seen in women, particularly during pregnancy (often called “the mask of pregnancy”) or while taking hormonal contraceptives. However, it can also affect men. The exact cause of melasma is not fully understood, but several factors are believed to contribute to its development. These factors include hormonal changes (such as pregnancy or hormone therapy), sun exposure, genetic predisposition, and certain medications or cosmetics that can sensitize the skin to sunlight.

How Melasma is diagnosed by dermatologists at our Dezire clinic?

How does Melasma gets treated by dermatologists at the dezire clinic in a variety of ways?

Melasma may resolve on its own. Melasma is frequently caused by a trigger, such as pregnancy or a medicine. Melasma may diminish after you have your baby or stop taking the medicine. Melasma can potentially persist for years if not a lifetime. While melasma is not harmful to your health, it is understandable that many individuals seek to remedy it. If you wish to treat melasma, make sure to question your dermatologist about treatment costs. Most insurance will not cover the expense of melasma treatment since it is not deemed medically necessary. If you decide to treat melasma, our dermatologist will design a treatment plan specifically for you. This implies that your treatment strategy will take into account your skin tone, the depth of the melasma, and any melasma triggers you may have. Melasma can be triggered by sunlight, birth control medications, and even stress.

The treatment's objectives can be as follows:

To achieve these objectives, a treatment strategy might include:

1.Sun protection:

Only a board-certified dermatologist should conduct the procedures listed above. Obtaining the required results necessitates extensive knowledge of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Q-Switch laser is most commonly used for removing brown age spots, freckles and many types of brown birthmarks. We will identify your specific type of lesion and discuss the removal success rate associated with it.
Yes. The Q-Switch laser produces a controlled beam of light specifically intended for the aesthetic treatment of pigmented lesions and approved for that use. The laser light, although bright is not strong enough to penetrate the skin below a depth of 1mm so it cannot damage other organs. The Q-Switch laser used by Dezire Clinic for Skin Rejuvenation is one of the safest lasers available today.
The laser light was designed for its properties that selectively target dark concentrations of melanin. If after removal of the abnormal concentrations of melanin treatment continued on normal skin; some whitening could occur. However, your body’s natural processes would replace the normal melanin after a period of time, returning the skin to its natural colour.
As with all laser treatment, you must avoid exposure to direct sunlight before treatment, during treatment and for some weeks following treatment. At Dezire Clinic, our experienced qualified therapists will advise you based on your skin type and the nature of the treatments that you are receiving. Sunscreen agent with SPF > 30 must be worn daily.
The level of discomfort is different for every person depending on sensitivity; other considerations include the location and surface area to be treated. Most clients do not request any pain control during treatment and relate the discomfort as comparable to mild sunburn. Your therapist will discuss your options with you based upon your own tolerance and the body area to be treated.
A small percentage of persons treated may experience side effects (unwanted outcomes), these side effects are usually temporary and mild, though can be more severe and longer term. They include: Scarring though rare and more likely with darker skin types, it can occur with all skin types and especially if the required precautions (relating to sun exposure and some medicines) are not followed, before, during and after treatment Hyper-pigmentation (darker skin) can occur because of inflammation caused by laser treatment and a brown mark arises that usually takes some months to fade with the assistance of lightening agents; Hypo-pigmentation (lighter skin): laser treatment can cause a loss of skin pigmentation in the treated area. This pigmentation usually returns but can take up to 18 months and in very rare cases can take so long that is considered long lasting.
After the treatment, the area will feel hot, similar to a sunburn, sometimes for up to several hours. Discomfort disappears over the next few hours, a scab or crust will develop over the area, and this looks darker than the original lesion. This will last between 12-18 days depending on the size and site (longer on arms and legs). When the scab comes off, the area will be pink for another couple of weeks and then will return to its final colour.
At least 80% of all common pigmented lesions are removed with one treatment. If a lesion covers a large area, your therapist may advise you to treat the area in several stages, to avoid unnecessary discomfort.
Everyone heals at various rates depending on the depth of treatment, the particular areas treated and your own health and condition. Noticeable results are typically seen in a few weeks. Some areas may take up to 12 weeks for the full treatment benefits to become apparent.

Lasers have been around for decades and are proven safe and approved for use, occasionally we see some mild unwanted effects including redness, swelling, and light bruising of the treated area. These side effects typically endure for only a few days, less frequently there may be a more noticeable change in skin pigmentation after treatment.

Increased pigmentation (Hyper-pigmentation)

This is more likely to occur in those individuals with darker skin. It may also occur if you expose your skin to the sun and solariums within three months after treatment. Whenever you go outdoors in the first three months after laser therapy, you must always wear effective sunscreen protection on the treated area for example an SPF 30 sunscreen plus a good physical barrier such as a foundation or zinc cream.

Decreased pigmentation (Hypo-pigmentation)

A small number of patients develop a lighter skin colour in the treated area. Skin colour usually returns to normal within 18 months.

Common pigmented lesions do not return. Some lesions may return after a period of several months to a year. However, the procedure can be repeated with similar results. The conditions that we treat vary in extent and severity from client to client. Consequently, each client response to any treatment does vary, and we are unable to guarantee individual results. Unprotected sun exposure on the area will most definitely stimulate the Melanocytes and the treated lesion/s will return. New pigmentations can also arise, and be successfully treated.
A shower can be taken the next day, but avoid scrubbing the treated area. Since most common pigmented lesions are caused by exposure to ultraviolet sunrays, it is imperative that you always wear sunscreen. Failure to wear a protective sunscreen will allow further sun damage to occur and result in new pigmented lesions.
