Melasma is a skin hyper-pigmentation that affects many people. It’s chronic and can flare up with exercise, heat, hormones, etc.
So how do we treat this condition?
At Body Lounge we treat it with Micro-Needling and recommend it with PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma). Many people are familiar with the famous photo of Kim Kardashian after her “Vampire” facial which also uses PRP.
Micro-Needling in an aesthtic procedure involving a medical grade pen wtih tiny needles to create “micro-channels” in the skin. By creating this, it sends signals to the brain that say “I need new skin” and then blood is sent to the area for healing. The PRP in combination uses your own cells to help heal the area for a quicker and even more effective response.
Not only does this treat melasma but it also treats other skin conditions along with stimulating collagen production.
Mirco-Needling helps to bright the skin, helps with hyperpigmentation, melasma, tone, scars, fine lines & wrinkles, and pore size. 3-6 treatments are recommended (5 weeks apart) for optimal results depending on the type of treatment desired. However you will see beautiful results after the first treatment.
A topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment. The treatment itself takes about 45 minutes. After treatment there may be some light peeling and red/pink face that can last 24-48 hours. Sunscreen should always be worn and no direct sun exposure for at least 48 hours after treatment.
