I just wanted to share with everyone my amazing results with the obagi system. I felt I had tried many things for melasma and was feeling very discouraged. My dermatologist recommended this and I couldn't be happier. I'm 3.5 weeks through and the results thus far are superb. Unfortunately, it... READ MORE

I am 25 years old, I have never been pregnant, and have not taken birth control or any hormones for over 5 years. About one year ago I developed melasma out of nowhere. After numerous consults and research I had 2 Vi Peels done and they were awful. My face was infected and painful (see photos... READ MORE

My doctor says it is a 3+ month process but I started seeing results the very firat week. I am using the Obagi NuDerm line afree seeing my friends results and... READ MORE

Having struggled with Melasma on the balls of my cheeks, forehead, upper lip and nose, I felt cursed. After using Dr. Schlesinger’s Melasma Cream I have NO visible signs of the condition. My skin is clear and even. I developed Melasma in 2009 and have consulted with several plastic surgeons... READ MORE

I developed hyperpigmentation after my 2nd baby. I got it after the 1st baby but Tri Luma fixed it. Then they discontinued it. I started Obagi Nu-derm & it worked but the retin A really started to irritate my skin making it look worse: scaly, un-even skin tone, large pores-HORRIBLE. By far not... READ MORE

I am still not sure how i feel about this, I had it done 4 weeks ago and I have encountered complications. All of my brown spots are gone, but about 2 weeks after I developed hundreds of blackheads all over my chin, forehead and nose. I am still treating this, so the final outcome on the... READ MORE

After much research of various clinics etc, I booked an appoinment to have my melasma looked at to see if laser treatment would help. I felt very reassured by clinic, after my initial assessment I was told their was a very good chance that the laser treatment could really improve my melasma... READ MORE

I tried the Obagi NuDerm line (purchased from a plastic surgeon based on his recommendation) to correct hyper and hypo pigmentation brought about by the c02 laser. In addition to the pigment problems, I also had texture issues (enlarged pores, orange peel texture) induced by the dreaded laser -... READ MORE

I have been battling with melasma for about 2 1/2 yrs and have used every product you could imagine. From very expensive creams, supplements, and laser treatments, however nothing has helped. Actually, the laser treatments made my spots darker. My self esteem was so low that I didn't like going... READ MORE

I had melasma on my face for several years due to a sunscreen mixup one day on holiday at the beach when I was living in France. I went to French doctors, then to British doctors when I moved to the UK. I tried creams, peels, etc. and nothing worked. When I moved to Dallas, I went to see Dr.... READ MORE

Went for a consultation on my assumed melasma (dark spots and hyper-pigmentation on my face) - doctor did a full body cancer screen and confirmed mild melasma (he said I was a 4 on a scale of 1-10 and we could get it down to a 1, or zero). Started a treatment of serums, vitamins, retinol and... READ MORE

Ok so Im using RETIN A 1.0 ( the strongest form non persciption) retinol cream from Skinceuticals. This is my Alfa and Omgea at the moment ( has been for the last 3 years).

After about a week I noticed it coming back however this time way worse and all of a sudden. In the next to last picture if you will look closely under the make up you... READ MORE

I had melasma on my upper cheeks and nose, & the patches were starting to crawl down my cheeks. After trying numerous treatments and products I finally took my doctor's advice & paid for the melanage peel. I am SO GLAD I did it! All the melasma on my nose went away, as did the melasma on...

In my pregnancies I developed freckle-sized patches of melasma on the sides of my cheeks. (These are not sunspots or agespots, but are indeed melasma, and that is an important difference.) I tried Tri-Luma which did absolutely nothing at all except make my skin red. There was no fading of... READ MORE

I started to get melasma in my early 30's. at first it was small patches of brown on my cheeks which weren't even that noticeable when i wore makeup so i wasn't that bothered by them. around the age of 35, i experimented with different kinds of birth control pills and very quickly, saw a...

My melasma was caused by combination of sun damage,genetic and hormones. I had 12 sessions of laser treatment, cost $8500.00 (with 10% professional discount since I am working in medical field). Laser treatment did not improve the dark brown ugly mask on my face. So I tried all kind of creams... READ MORE

I had mine done about 10 months ago. My face peeled and got really read and sore and I thought "this thing is working." After two weeks I went back to the aesthetician for a "results" consultation. And of course she said the results were good but I could still see all the brown spots and uneven... READ MORE
