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 and soap and I had very little improvement. I know that sun light will make my melasma worse and wearing sunscreen helps but it won't improve the situation. To avoid too much sun, I quit my day job and work night shift instead. It has been 5 years on the night shift, my melasma got a lot lighter and my social life got even lighter. I decided to have "permanent cosmetic",aka 'tattoo" on my face to cover the brown ugly mask. I had one session done 4 weeks ago and will go back for touch-up in October 10th. The ares where the tattoo stayed on are beautiful, beige/pink, just like my natural skin tone. I had permanent cosmetic on my eyebrow, eyeliner and lips for over 12 years and I have no bad reaction from it.My only problem (everyone is different) is the my skin does not hold the color long, hints...need a touch up. If anyone interested to know my result/my last fight. Please email me at: jesslin*****gmail.com....good luck to all of us.
