Melasma is a common skin condition that causes brown or greyish patches on the face, most commonly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. It’s often triggered by hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy or while taking birth control pills. However, it can also be caused by sun exposure, genetics, and certain medications.
Melasma can be a frustrating condition to deal with, as it can be difficult to treat. However, there’s no need to suffer in silence. Dr Liesel Holler can help.
Dr Holler is a renowned Aesthetic Doctor with years of experience helping patients achieve their ideal skin. Her expertise in cosmetic dermatology makes her the perfect choice for anyone looking to fade melasma.
At our clinic, we offer a range of treatments to address melasma. These include:
Topical Treatments: We also offer a range of topical treatments that can help fade melasma. These include prescription creams, gels, and lotions that contain ingredients like Cysteamine, Azaleic Acid, Kojic Acid, retinoids, and vitamin C.
These treatments work by inhibiting the production of melanin in the skin, which can help reduce the appearance of melasma. Dr Holler will work with you to determine the best topical treatment for your specific needs.
Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are a non-invasive treatment that can help improve the appearance of melasma. They work by removing the outer layer of skin, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath.
Chemical peels can be customised to address your specific skin concerns, and Dr Holler will work with you to determine the best peel for your needs. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to complete and requires no downtime.
The procedure depends on which treatment is used and is tailored to your desired outcome and individual needs.
Melasma treatments are generally well-tolerated, and many patients experience little to no discomfort.
Melasma treatments are quick, straightforward procedures that usually take less than an hour to complete.
Results from melasma treatments can last for 6-12 months or more, depending on the type of treatment.
