What is melasma?
However, in a number of persons the melasma remains creating an annoying but harmless discoloration.
Melasma is particularly common in darker skin individuals, Asians, women on oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy and with the natural aging process. Similar to acne, it is a benign condition that erodes the esteem of the affected person. Melasma is difficult to treat and often recccurs especially after unprotected sun exposure.
I use a triple therapy approach to treating Melasma.
Our treatment plan works to restore the normal skin color and simultaneously suppressing melanin the culprit in the development of melasma. Beginning with ointments a that suppress melanin coupled with specific laser therapy Q toning which breaks down the dark pigment. Sunblock is a must for optimal results. Generally the melasma is controlled after several weeks.
Despite all these measures Melasma can reoccur especially with un protected sun exposure.
This can happen even after only one day of excessive sun exposure. I recommend the daily use of the skin ceutical non greasy spf 50 broad spectrum sunblocker. The mixture of zinc and titanium offers the best protection available.

Hand Rejuvenation “the forgotten area”
The 532 Laser Peel
The 532 laser peel can remove these annoying blemishes sometimes in a single treatment which is quick and painless. However its not for everyone. It is best for persons with very light skin tone.
Please Don’t Let Your Hands Ruin a Rejuvenation
Everyone is always concerned about removing the fine lines , wrinkles and blemishes of the face and neck but what about your hands?
The hands are often neglected in a rejuvenation plan and end up revealing your true age despite reversing years of sun damage elsewhere on the body.
A triple plan works best:
1. Remove sun spots and age spots with laser therapy
2. Reduce unsightly veins with sclerotherapy leaving a smooth flat hand.
3. Restore fullness with injectables such as Radiesse or Juvederm
Treat the one area that gives away your age, the forgotten HANDS, my treatment of solar lentigo also called age spots or sun spots are the icing on the cake when it come to anti aging medicine.
Although several sessions may be required very often the “sun Spots” will darken and peel off within two weeks of a single treatment.
Nevus of Ota
Unlike the other pigmented lesions on this page the nevus of ota is a deeper, dermal lesion seen involving the facial nerves about the eye. Once a complete medical and ophthalmic evaluation is performed should laser removal be desired it can be gingerly performed. The treatment requires at least 10 sessions about 3 weeks apart.
