This case of melasma was treated with the usual bleaching agents- 5% HQ plus tretinoin (Vitamin A), I also used Q Switch laser at a low fluence. All laser treatments should be gentle, and hence multiple treatments need to be performed over months. Aggressive settings will result in rebound pigmentation and post inflammatory changes, making melasma worse. Dr Davin Lim
