What is Melasma?
Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder that causes brown or gray patches to appear on the skin, primarily on the face.
Women with darker complexions and who are pregnant are at greater risk of developing melasma. Though when it occurs on the skin of pregnant women, it also called chloasma, or the “mask of pregnancy”.
It may occur due to the malfunction of the melanocytes (the color-making cells) in the skin, causing them to produce too much skin color.
As a result, people with darker skin tones are more likely to develop melasma, as they have more melanocytes than people with lighter skin.
The primary symptom of melasma is the development of discolored patches of the skin. While it does not cause any other physical symptoms, some people find the appearance of these patches bothersome.
Also, there may be a genetic component to melasma, as people whose close relatives have experienced melasma, are more likely to develop it themselves.
The most common area for patches of melasma to appear is the face. Common locations include the upper lips, bridge of the nose, cheeks, and forehead.
Less commonly, a person may also have patches on their arms and neck.
Treatment of Melasma
Melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation occur spontaneously on the face and body or following spots, burns or some aggressive treatments in predisposed individuals.
When attempting to remove melasma using harmful treatments like dermabrasion or deep peelings, that aggressively remove the surface layers of the skin, following a temporary improvement, there is a risk of the melasma actually becoming worse.
But fear not, for BioCell Clinic is here to lend a helping hand with our cutting-edge approach to effectively treating Melasma.
First of all, at BioCell we understand the frustration and emotional toll that Melasma can take on individuals. That’s why we are committed to staying at the forefront of technological advancements and collaborating with renowned global companies. Our aim is to provide you with the most safe and up-to-date treatments available.
When it comes to Melasma, we believe in a multi-faceted approach that combines both advanced technology and personalized care. We utilize state-of-the-art treatments that allows us to precisely target the pigmented areas of your skin, while ensuring minimal discomfort and downtime.
At BioCell Clinic, we believe in a comprehensive and innovative approach to tackling Melasma. That is why we have developed a unique and highly effective method that combines injectable skin rejuvenation with topical skin resurfacing treatments.
Our approach focuses on targeting the underlying causes of Melasma at the cellular level. Through the use of advanced injectable treatments, we can deliver specialized ingredients directly into the skin, promoting cellular regeneration and reducing pigmentation. These treatments work to restore balance, regulate function of color-making cells and even out the complexion, resulting in a noticeable improvement in the appearance of Melasma.
Complementing our injectable treatments, we also utilize topical skin resurfacing treatments to enhance the overall results. These treatments work to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead cells and promoting the growth of fresh, healthy skin, as well as designed to prevent any post-treatment skin peeling. By combining these two approaches, we can effectively address both the superficial and deeper layers of the skin affected by Melasma.
In line with our commitment to excellence and personalized care, we want to emphasize that at BioCell Clinic, we prioritize the avoidance of post-treatment complications such as worsened hyperpigmentation.
In certain regions, like Africa, where the climate and skin type can make individuals more prone to hyperpigmentation, we take extra precautions to minimize the risk. As a result, we do not recommend treatments that may cause excessive peeling of the skin after the procedure.
By avoiding aggressive peeling, we can greatly reduce the chances of post-treatment complications, including the development of additional hyperpigmentation. Our approach focuses on achieving effective results through injectable skin rejuvenation and topical skin resurfacing treatments while ensuring the skin remains intact and protected.
Rest assured that our team of experienced professionals at BioCell Clinic will carefully assess your skin and customize the treatment plan to suit your specific needs. We will take into consideration your skin type, climate, and any potential risk factors to ensure the best possible outcome without compromising your skin’s health.
Our goal is to provide you with a safe and effective treatment experience while minimizing the risk of complications. We understand the importance of maintaining the health and integrity of your skin, and our approach reflects this commitment.
We understand that Melasma can have a significant impact on your confidence and emotional well-being. That’s why, in addition to our advanced treatments, we strive to create a warm and compassionate environment at BioCell Clinic.
