Yes, QSL and Clear and Brilliant

Yes, 
I have been using 1064 Nd Yag Q switch lasers, as well as picosecond Picosure 755, lately we have been using Clear and Brilliant combined with creams and this has been successful in most cases. Dermal melasma is the hardest to treat. 

All the best

Melasma and Sun Spots -- Best Treamtent Is Clear + Brilliant / Fraxel 1927 / Aerolase w Microneedling PRP, Pro Yellow is Useful

Yes, we use a combination of clear + brilliant, aerolase, microneedling/PRP and skin care. I suggest you see an expert.  VI or similar type peels are good as well.  Best, Dr. Emer.
