Dermal melasma resistant to all treatments; is dermabrasion a possible treatment option?

Dermal melasma and Melarase creams
Start with simple solutions
Dermabrasion is contra-indicated in a high risk patient for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Dermabrasion is difficult to control the depth of treatment/injury and you might suffer from areas of irregular pigmentation as well as PIH. For others who suffer from melasma (patches of discoloration) one should start with a person skilled in treatment and understand one would start off with simple solutions such as skin care, topical creams etc. prior to jumping to more expensive treatments with more significant side affects.
