Melasma is a brown-gold discoloration of the skin, common on the face. It can be incredibly resistant to treatment, but clearence is possible with an expert Dermatologist. Dr. Mays will fully evaluate your face to determine the type and severity of melasma in order to customize the best treatment modalities for your particular type. Treatments vary from prescription topicals, prescription orals, resurfacing, prp or a combination of all. Lasers normally do not help melasma and can flare in some cases. Dr. Mays cautions patients from receiving diagnosis and treatment recommendations from non Dermatologists and medspas as inappropriate treatment can cause permanent discoloration and scarring.
