WHAT IS MELASMA?

Melasma is brownish patches commonly appearing on the cheeks, chin, forehead, nose, and upper lip. Melasma begins as an irregular brownish flat spot (macules), then slowly spreads out, forming brownish patches. Commonly known as the mask of pregnancy, chloasma is melasma acquired during pregnancy. Melasma is thought to be caused by a complex interaction of a number of factors including sun-exposure genetics and hormones. Although some melasma may disappear spontaneously after menopause, melasma generally does not regress on its own and is one of the most resistant pigmentations to treat. Traditionally, combination of topical agents such as hydroquinone, retinoic acid, and steroids has been used to treat melasma. These topical treatments result in only temporary clearing in some patients, with the possibility of melasma flare-ups and long-term complications.

Melasma is typically grouped into three large categories based on the depth of melanin pigments; epidermal melasma (pigments in superficial layers), dermal melasma (pigments in deep layers), and mixed type (pigments in both superficial and deep layers), but this classification is based on a flawed study that was conducted more than two decades ago. Clinically more relevant classification should be based on known histological changes (microscopic changes within the skin).

HOW TO TREAT MELASMA

Many treatments have been tried for melasma, including chemical peels, iPL, and fractional Laser. Long-term results with these treatment options have been disappointing. The most recent evidence suggests that these treatments can actually accelerate and worsen the melasma-associated skin changes. More recent treatment option that is popular in Asia safer is called “Laser Toning,” which is also known as “Low Fluence Q-Switch ND:YAG Laser Treatment.” Studies have demonstrated that Laser Toning Treatments can bring about a significant improvement in majority of patients. Risks are known to be much lower than other treatment options.

WHAT IS LASER TONING

Laser Toning is a skin brightening treatment using a specialized pigment laser called Q-switched ND:YAG laser. Laser Toning has become one of the most popular treatments in Asian countries over the last several years. Our newest, advanced Q-switched ND:YAG laser emits short bursts of laser, lasting only a few nanoseconds, In turn, the laser gently disperses melanin (skin pigment) leading to a brighter looking skin. Laser Toning is also known as “Low Fluence Q-Switch ND:YAG Laser Treatment.” Studies have demonstrated that Laser Toning treatments can bring about a significant improvement in majority of patients. Risks are known to be much lower than other treatment options. However, treating melasma still remains as a challenge today. Any physician who feels or claims otherwise is not an experienced or honest clinician.

IMPORTANT FACTS

Melasma worsens when exposed to UV radiation, particularly UVA. Some melasma conditions are sensitive to visible light as well. As a result, protecting the skin from the sun, not just UV rays plays a very important role. Wearing a thick layer of broad spectrum, opaque physical sunscreen is strongly recommended. Skinlife recommends non-micronized titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, which provides protection against UV rays and visible light. Although micronized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide excellent UV protection, these micronized minerals do not provide protection against visible light. Look for hypo-allergenic sun-blocks with either or both of these minerals as main sun-protective ingredients (should be the first ingredient on the bottle).
