Melasma is an acquired disorder of hyperpigmentation that primarily affects the sun-exposed areas of the forehead, upper lips, cheeks, and chin. It can have different clinical patterns and occur at various depths. There are multiple forms of Melasma treatments in Dallas that can be effective. Sunscreens, camouflage, topical products, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, DermaFrac (microneedling), and lasers and light sources are all used to treat Melasma depending on the patients skin type, medical history, and physical examination.  If treated properly, Melasma can be reduced and controlled, and eventually the patients may be on maintenance therapy.
