IPL vs. Fraxel for treatment of melasma
Unfortunately melasma is a challenging condition to treat. It cannot be cured; using a combination of medical and technology-based therapies melasma can be controlled. Only after medical therapy has been maximized should a technology-based solution be sought. Fractional resurfacing is probably of greater benefit than IPL when considering technology-based solutions but the 2 treatments have never been compared directly.
