I am a South Asian female in my 50's - I have a lot of dark patches (hormonal deposits and sun exposure) on my face that make me very self-concious. Is it melasma?
I went to a dermatologist for consultation and was offered a $7500 package that included chemical peel, some kind of dermabrasion, laser and she also threw in Botox for my neck.
What is the best course (considering I don't have $$$ to drop)? Initally it was recommended I use prescription tretinoin cream, but how do I know if I have melasma and if these treatments would help?
