Melasma/hyperpigmentation is a common condition that appears as irregular patches of tan, brown or brown-gray pigmentation, usually on the face and neck. The most common trigger for melasma is ultraviolet light from sun exposure. Melasma may develop as a result of hormone changes due to pregnancy or certain medications, such as oral contraceptives. At Belle Ame Aesthetics & Wellness, we use a comprehensive approach to reduce and diminish hyperpigmentation through combination therapy to lift, remove, and suppress melanin. Our treatment modality includes medical-grade microneedling with a patented brightening serum, medical grade peel, dermaplaning, and pigment corrective post-care products. Of course, we encourage consistent use of sunscreen before, during, and after treatment…..it’s an integral to protecting the skin!
