Would a V Beam treatment work for this? Male diagnosed with Melasma by two Dermatologists, would like a third opinion.
Doctor Answers 3
Melasma can certainly have a vascular component which can improve with the VBeam. I suggest he proves that with a 2/3D scan with colirometry. That way he can measure an objective reduction too.
Melasma, pigmentation, and Redness
The V-beam laser is a great laser for redness but will not treat the melasma. The pigmentation from melasma can be treated with Clear and Brilliant, PRP, Cosmelan, chemical peels and bleaching cream regimen. Cosmelan is an amazing peeling procedure for stubborn melasma. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

There is no "cure" for melasma but there are great treatments. We are using clear + brilliant laser with bleaching, peels, microneedling/PRP and getting amazing results. I suggest you see an expert. You will need lifelong treatment, sun protection, skin care. But these treatments can give you improvement and then you help you maintain. Best , Dr. Emer.
