Melasma Treatment in Miami
CAUSES OF MELASMA
If you are suffering from melasma, this is likely caused from a hormone imbalance. This often occurs in women who are pregnant or nursing when their hormones production is erratic. Melasma is an inflammatory condition creating a stubborn pigment that cannot be treated in the same way as traditional hyperpigmentation treatments. Certain triggers like excessive heat, or sun exposure can make the melasma worse.
TREATMENT FOR MELASMA
Many patients have complained that laser treatments they had in the past were expensive and made the melasma worse. Dr. Julio at VIKARA Esthetics has developed a special protocol to address tough melasma cases. He has had great success with his combination treatment which includes gentle laser therapy, microneedling with PRF and a strict home care regimen to help treat melasma cases.
LASER FOR MELASMA
Using lasers to treat melasma can be tricky. Since melasma is an inflammatory condition, it can be exacerbated by too much heat. At VIKARA, we use a gentle laser that targets the inflammation which in turn decreases the hyperpigmentation. We then follow up immediately with microneedling to further target the pigment.
MICRONEEDLING FOR MELASMA
The Dermapen microneedling treatment uses multiple needles to vertically penetrate the skin to create numerous micro channels which help stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This is similar to the effect of a fractional laser treatment without the heat. This procedure can be combined with platelet rich fibrin (PRF) which has a higher concentration of growth factors than platelet rich plasma (PRP) to improve skin texture and tone. Treatment results can be seen quickly. This requires virtually no downtime and yields amazing results!
