Treating Melasma and Pigmentation

Melasma and pigmentation from acne scarring  is often frustrating for patients and they seek treatment  after trying a variety of therapies  in an attempt to obtain satisfactory results. Like most other complicated skin conditions, a combination of treatments paired with the proper skin regimen works best! Topical de-pigmenting agents such as hydroquinone or other melanin inhibitors along with a topical tretinoic acid to increase skin cell turnover, hastens the fading of uneven patches. This commitment along with specific medical-grade chemical peels, appropriate laser treatments and diligent protection , can enhance the likelihood of reducing or resolving melasma !

The best treatment would be a combination of chemical peels and topical bleaches.  Cosmelan is highly effective and only needs two treatments to reduce the unwanted pigmentation.  Strict sun avoidance is always needed.  Best, Dr. Green
