1. Is laser treatment effective for melasma?

The causes of melasma are complex and still unknown. Therefore, to treat melasma effectively, we need to combine many methods together such as:

  • Avoid the sun
  • Using medicine, whitening cream
  • Combination of cosmetic methods (laser, peel ...)
  • Reasonable living habits

The laser method is researched and proven to have a certain effect on removing melasma. The emitted laser will destroy the pigment particles into tiny particles. Then the body will slowly excrete it out according to a natural mechanism that is very limited to leaving damage on the surface of the skin. The result is pigment spots fading, skin looking brighter and more even.

However, it should be noted that laser is not the first choice when starting to treat melasma. Using whitening creams and avoiding the sun is still the first choice. In addition, lasers only help to remove pigment gradually, meaning it has to be done many times. Unlike the ads that help clear melasma in just "one time". Besides, the skill of the person performing the treatment is very important to be effective without causing complications.
