Chemical peel for melasma
There are many peels that can help with melasma. Typically a series of peels is needed to treat the pigmentation associated with melasma. Once treated and during the treatment process, it is important to use a topical product that will suppress the melanocytes that produce excess pigment. In addition, SPF and sun avoidance will also aid in minimizing the return of melasma pigmentation.
To assure you are getting the proper treatment for melasma, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
