I have been directed to use Melasma Emulsion.

Mole removal from a clear face, left with hypopigmentation and now have been prescribed the emulsion and pigment bar. What are the side effects, does this actually work?

I recommend following up with your Dr. about the prescribed treatment and possible side effects. Usually a combination approach is needed to effectively treat melasma. We currently use clear + brilliant with bleaching and microneedling/prp and getting amazing results. I suggest you see an expert. You will need lifelong treatment, sun protection, skin care. But these treatments can give you improvement and then help you maintain. See an expert. Best , Dr. Emer
