PERSONALIZED TREATMENT

EACH PATIENT IS UNIQUE

Melasma, also known as pregnancy mask, appears as hyperpigmented brown spots or patches on areas of the skin exposed to the sun, like the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, etc. Melasma is more common in women. Hormones, pregnancy, sun exposure and genetic predisposition are the main causes of this skin condition. It can present itself in different ways on different patients, which is why each melasma treatment is tailored to the needs of each patient.

FAQ

Everything you need to know about this treatment

WHAT WILL MY FACE LOOK LIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER MY APPOINTMENT ?

You should expect to have some normal inflammatory reactions. You will have redness, edema, a feeling of heat, and slight tenderness. There might even be a few dried blood droplets on the treated area. Do not worry; these reactions will not be permanent. They should last between 3 and 7 days. You will need to follow the post-treatment instructions that your professional will explain to you. He will give you a written copy to take home.
You will have normal side effects, including redness and swelling, for about 5 days after your treatment. You may find it uncomfortable to go out in public as long as your skin isn't completely healed. Be aware that depending on the intensity of the treatment you have received, determined in advance by your professional, your recovery time may be faster. It is at your own discretion to refrain from going out during this time.
Absolutely. Even though normal aging reduces the number of collagen fibers, you will still have a certain amount that can be stimulated. It is therefore never too late to start cosmetic treatments that will stimulate your collagen. However, the earlier you start, the faster the results will be obtained and the better those results will be.
It is not recommended to have direct sun exposure for 4 weeks after your treatment. After this time, we recommend to use good sunscreen if you go in the sun. Be aware that you should never be in the sun without protection.
