Do you feel self-conscious about the appearance of melasma on your skin?

Asset 1

Melasma is a common skin condition that mainly affects pregnant women, thanks to hormonal shifts (about 90% of melasma cases are women). Melasma results in dark or discolored patches that appear on your skin, particularly on the:

  • Face
  • Cheeks
  • Nose
  • Chin

Melasma patches can often disappear over time, but for many women, they can be persistent. While it’s not a health-threatening condition, it can be a source of frustration for women who want to achieve a smooth and clear complexion.

Twin Ports Dermatology is proud to offer innovative treatments for clients who want to fade the appearance of their melasma patches faster.

What Treatment Options Are Available for Melasma?

There are different approaches that can be taken to get rid of melasma spots, including medical-grade sunscreens, topical lightening products, retinols, etc. Chemical peels can be performed on patients once they’re done with pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Our providers will help you pick the right melasma solution for your specific needs.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

Treatment length can vary, as some can be done right at home, while others are performed in our dermatological practice.
