Laser treatment, but pre treat and post treat your skin

Lasers can help. Depending on your skin type, I would pre and post treat your skin with bleaching agents. This can reduce the chances of skin colour changes. See a Specialist in your area. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Confidence Boosting Treatments--Peels, Lightening creams, Lasers

I would suggest a formal consultation with cosmetic dermatologist.  Melasma comes in many forms and would need to be evaluated and a long-term treatment plan established  which includes a combination of peels, skin lightening creams and lasers.  I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
