Melasma can be treated but not cured. In this case, improvement of up to 80% can be seen using low dose lasers, and creams. I use a variety of lasers including the 1064, the 755 Picosure, and the Clear and Brilliant. I am not a fan of Fraxel as I think this laser is too harsh. IPL should not be used to treat melasma, as in 90% of the time, IPL can worsen this condition.
