Melasma is a localized hyper pigmentation skin problem that affects millions of people worldwide.

Melasma is an acquired disorder that primarily affects the sun-exposed areas of the forehead, upper lips, cheeks, and chin. Kassir Dermatology offers patients with Melasma treatments in the Dallas area to diagnose and treat this skin condition.

Melasma has different clinical patterns (where it occurs on the face and forehead) and various depths (epidermal, dermal, or mixed).

Several other conditions may look like Melasma, such as PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation), sun spots and freckles, drug induced pigmentation, congenital skin conditions (example: Hori's nevus), and other conditions.

Risk factors include but are not limited to: genetics, exposure to ultraviolet light (sun), pregnancy, and oral contraceptives.
A proper medical history, review of all medications, and a detailed physical examination are the keys to diagnosing and treating Melasma.

Melasma Treatments

As there are multiple forms of Melasma, treatment also varies. Sunscreens, camouflage, topical products, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, DermaFrac, and lasers and light sources are all used to treat Melasma.

Each patient's Melasma is as variable as the disease itself; therefore, we perform a detailed history and physical examination, take clinical photographs, recommend a specific skin care regimen and perform different procedures based on the patient's needs. If treated properly, Melasma can be well controlled, and eventually the patients may be on maintenance therapy.
