Best Laser for Dermal Melasma

Melasma and Laser Treatments
I do however use lasers on patients that are also using lightening creams like the Cosmelan, in this instance I like to use the Clear and Brilliant Permea. This treatment is gentle yet very effective for Melasma and pigmentation. Best results are seen after a series. I recommend 6 sessions done once every 3 weeks with use of a vitamin c anti-oxidant and SPF 50 in the morning and a lightening cream at night. Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see which option is best for you.

Lasers for Melasma
Melasma is a difficult skin condition to treat. Constant sun avoidance is necessary to prevent recurrence. There are many lasers that have been used and I have used the Fraxel, Clear and Brilliant, among others with success. I also love Cosmelan which is a topical peel originally from Brazil. There is a medical grade Cosmelan treatment which is combined with hydroquinones with great results. Please find an experienced dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.
Laser Treatement for Dermal Melasma
Dermal melasma is very difficult to treat, but I've used the 1927 nm laser (commonly known as Fraxel Dual or Clear & Brilliant) with great success. I always use the lasers with lightening medications (creams) or natural lightening products. This will enhance the results and prevent side effects. Make sure you go to a dermatologist who is experienced in treating melasma with lasers, especially if you have darker skin.
