Is dermbrasion too risky for Indian skin with melasma?

In thailand they perform focus dermbrasion for melasma that claims to cure melasma. is it worth the risk? recovery takes 6-12 months. I have dermal melasma on cheeks and upper lip that's not responsive to any treatment and I would like to have it gone permanently.. is it worth the risk?

Thanks for query. Dermabrasion with vitamin c for melasma works well and suits Indian skin type as well. You can also try chemical peels, ND YAG Laser for Melasma. They also work very well for Melasma. Hope it helps.
