Dr. Johua Fox did a fantastic job by using the melasma treatment. His terrific treatment help me to get rid of all those dark spots from exposure to the sun. His 30 and plus years of experience makes a difference. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend this treatment to anyone... READ MORE

Finacea 15% azealic acid did nothing . It's worthless, despite what some research articles suggested. And yes, I used it in conjunction with Retin-A. Biggest waste of 124 bucks ever. On a side note a bit about the doc : Dr. Anderson in Evanston IL may be the least competent medical professional... READ MORE

In May 2014, I relocated to Portland. I was worried that I would not be able to find a medspa that was as knowledgeable and friendly as the one I had been going to for the last four years. With a google search, I found the Bensimon Center. I read through the reviews and decided to make an... READ MORE

Yes, this procedure does hurt a bit (feels like a soldering iron is being used), but it's only for a few seconds and the results are almost instantaneous. I had a white bump on my chin for years that almost looked like a whitehead; was probably a fibroma, which took two treatments to get rid of... READ MORE

I had a lot of sun damage on my cheeks and all my what I thought were my freckles were getting darker and growing together. I had tried IPL with someone else which I was not a candidate for. I went to Jennifer and have been doing lightening cream for last few months. The results have been... READ MORE

First time at Water's Edge Dermatology and the doctor and staff were great! I felt very relieved after my appointment. The treatment options were all explained and the staff took note to all of my concerns. This company has multiple locations, so it is very functional for people who live and... 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 tried Skin Medica brightening treatment ( cleanser, lytera brigthening lotion & retin A - 0.5 %) it has been 3 months now & my skin looks worst: more dark spots, enlarged pores on my nose & cheeks, peeling, redness, rashes,...

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

My face is glowing and melasma is fading so nicely. She is very prompt and I never waited in her office more than... 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). It peels your skin systimaticly and it work. Doesnt get rid of it but it helps. Makes skin sensitive and you need to wear... READ MORE

I visited Dr. Karamanoukian's office for melasma/hyperpigmentation on my upper cheeks and upper lip. I previously had Fraxel Restore laser treatments at another office to treat the melasma/spots, but that caused worse pigmentation and the other doctor was unable to recommend anything that would...

I had a chemical peel last year. 1st picture is before chemical peel. Then in 4 weeks I had beautiful white skin and no melasma! 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

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
