Melasma Treatment Options
Are you dealing with brown, tan or gray patches on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead? If so, you might be dealing with a condition known as melasma. This skin problem, which is more common in women, may be the result of hormonal changes (e.g. pregnancy) or regular sun exposure. If you want to get rid of these unsightly patches our medical team here at CareLifeStyle Medical Aesthetics Dr. Fatima Aziz, Dr. Syed Ashraf, and Glenda Thomas, NP offer an amazing laser treatment that can precisely and effectively remove these pigmentations from the skin for good.
What is Enlighten Pico Genesis™?
This non-invasive laser therapy is designed to treat a variety of skin discolorations, from melasma and hyperpigmentation to age spots. Pico Genesis can be used on all skin types and allows patients to get more even and beautiful skin without the downtime.
What makes Enlighten different from other laser skin treatments is that it has strong, photomechanical properties coupled with high peak power that allows our medical aestheticians to break apart pigments in the skin without heating our or damaging healthy skin tissue surrounding it. In as little as two treatments with Enlighten Pico Genesis™ you’ll begin to see a reduction in pigmented spots and more even skin tone.
What should I expect from this laser melasma treatment?
While there is no downtime associated with this treatment, which means that you can go about your routine immediately after treatment, you may notice some slight swelling aftwards. Flaking may also be present, but this usually occurs only in more severe cases.
This laser treatment is fast and effective. Like other laser treatments, it’s well tolerated without numbing the area prior. Some patients liken the sensation to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The treatment can take as little as 15 minutes, and most patients may require about 5 separate treatments in order to get the desired results. Though results may be visible in as little as 2 to 3 treatments.

You may be an ideal candidate for Enlighten Pico Genesis™ if you are dealing with melasma, sun spots, freckles or other pigmentations of the skin. Patients looking for a simple melasma treatment without the recovery period may be right for Enlighten Pico Genesis™ treatment.
