Melasma is a hyper-pigmentation condition of the skin. It is commonly referred to as “the pregnancy mask” and can occur near or after times of pregnancy.  However, men as well as women get Melasma.

Most occurrences of Melasma are also NOT linked to times of pregnancy.  Sun exposure and skin vulnerability, such as from changing hormones, are the suspected culprits for a person developing Melasma. Hence, treatment WILL require ongoing sun protection for best results.

But the great news for patients with Melasma is that it MAY be effectively treated with a special treatment using Dermamelan.  And you can see the results in just a few month’s time. 

The condition of Melasma often leads to discolouration of the face in a common pattern, although this varies from patient to patient.

As seen in the photo below, the pigmentation from Melasma is primarily seen across the cheeks and forehead.

Did you know that we treat Melasma with an effective masque-based facial treatment called Dermamelan?

  • There are several steps to the procedure and it should be done in Clinic by a Dermal Clinician.
  • Good candidates will undergo a skin care assessment to pre-assess the likelihood of treatment effectiveness.
  • Pigmentation caused by sun exposure, genetics or hormonal changes and sun exposure during pregnancy can be remedied with this exciting treatment.
  • You will need to wear the mask for an extended period of time and you can see results in approximately 2 to 3 months (sometimes longer) as the skin renews itself after treatment.
  • Pigmentation patterns known by Melasma are thereby reduced and your skin will look younger and fresher as well as more evenly toned.
