I suffered with melasma during pregnancy and was almost hopeless to get rid of it until I found out about The Face and Body Place and the services they had to offer.I was very pleased and satisfied with the treatment I received from The Face and Body Place. My skin is healthier and my skin... READ MORE

I am 34 years old and I suffered with the combination of melasma and adult acne. My melasma has been ongoing for years, and the adult acne just surfaced in mid 2015. No matter how much makeup I used to cover this up, it was still visible, and without makeup my confidence was low. My best friend... READ MORE

I'm 40 years old and have had stubborn melasma for 10 years on my upper lip, cheeks, nose and a small mark on my forehead. I had tried everything! I had even tried 10% hydroquine! Nothing seemed to work. I was recommended to Dr. Mesa. He convinced me to try Obagi (again). I had tried Obagi twice... READ MORE

Amanda Sanzone at Dr. schulmans office was fantastic. She was very professional and very accommodating as she decided to change my package mid series to accomodate my needs. She also did a fantastic job with the series of chemical peels and deeper peel called the melange peel. My skin really... READ MORE

There are many members in this forum who have gotten rid of their melasma by external means (i.e. creams, acids, lasers) and I’m very happy for them. Sadly, I wasn’t so lucky. Over the past 20 years, I’ve tried almost everything: 4% Hidroquinone, Cosmelan 2, Nivea cream, citric acid peels, inten... READ MORE

Since moving to Florida I have several blotches of Melasma that don't seem to go away. I have decided to try Obagi Nu Derm ( with .1% tetrinol) at the recommendation of a dermatologist. The Melasma is concentrated on my cheekbones and upper lip. At first, they looked like freckles...but it... READ MORE

I have had melasma on forehead went to Thailand to have the miracle peel, after relentless questioning I found it is called inno peel, can only get it online as a practitioner. Itchy when you put the yellow cream on but gives a great result as it peels over the next few days. I've tried a lot... READ MORE

I have had IPL treatments several places but the results were so much better at Premier Dermatology with Donna Billu Martin, MD. I Highly recommend this treatment for melasma and overall better skin. I would not trust anyone else in town for these types of procedures. She is very knowledgeable,... READ MORE

I am 40 years old now, and, unfortunately, spent many of my teenage years and my early twenties as a sun worshiper. That, along with a few Caribbean vacations in the past few years, has left me with several distinct brown spots on the left side of my face, and one fairly sizeable mark on my... READ MORE

So, this obsession started about 4 years ago when my boyfriend made a comment about the spots on my face. I didn't even equate it with melasma. I figured it was sun spots --- just put some creme on it and it fades away- NOT! So I did the required "background" check on many, many, products and... READ MORE

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 have very sensitive skin & maybe rosacea. I also have melasma. 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
