Treatments for Melasma from Aloha, Dermatology and Laser Center - Dr Micki Ly MD

Melasma

Melasma is a skin condition presenting as brown patches on the face of adults. Both sides of the face are usually affected. The most common sites of involvement are the cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead, and upper lip.

Living in the tropics here on Maui, with the sun being extremely strong, women tend to struggle with a discoloration called Melasma. This is extremely common and it's very easily taken care of with an IPL Laser otherwise known as “Intense pulsed light” as well as with the Obagi® Skin Care System.
