Fraxel or Dermamelan for Dermal Melasma? Two Doctors. Two Different Recommendations.
I have a combination of epidermal and dermal melasma. I have tried various combinations of topicals with little improvement(Retin-A, Triluma, hydroquinone at 4% and 6%, IPL, and different peels). Recently I have been to two cosmetic surgeons for opinions. One recommends Fraxel re:store. The other recommends the Dermamelan peel + cream. Checked PubMed for literature on Dermamelan but found little. Which is more promising? Also, which has less change of making melasma worse?
