Melasma (De-pigmentation) Treatment

If you live with melasma, you are likely well aware of just what it is. For those who are unaware, melasma is a common skin condition that typically causes discoloured pigmentation to form. Also referred to as chloasma, melasma is usually more common in women and tends to affect adults rather than children or adolescents. It is also often found in individuals whose skin is darker and those who typically live in sunny climates.

Melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment in Dubai is a common choice for many patients who visit Blue Tree Clinics. As mentioned above, those living in sunnier climates are often prone to melasma and Dubai with its scorching hot temperatures is certainly no exception. As the effects of melasma are more prevalent during the summer months, those living in Dubai are likely to struggle with this condition more than those living in colder countries.

Darker patches form as a result of melasma, and these are usually symmetrical in appearance and can appear in different locations such as:

  • Cheeks
  • Face
  • Forehead
  • Upper lip
  • Nose
  • Chin

The good news is that melasma is not an infection and, therefore, not contagious. Furthermore, the patches are not cancerous and are not life threatening. That being said, the appearance of melasma can cause emotional issues for most. If you’re living with melasma and searching for an effective solution, call Blue Tree Clinics now to find out more about melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment Dubai can rely on.

 

What causes melasma?

While the exact cause of melasma remains a complete a mystery, hereditary aspects have been observed. As such, there is a small possibility that the condition might potentially be passed from one generation to the next. Furthermore, various factors are believed to contribute to the development of melasma; factors such as:

  • Hormonal drugs (e.g. contraceptive pills)
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Pregnancy
  • Certain cosmetic products
  • Stress

Whenever melasma occurs, it rarely ever causes symptoms such as soreness or itchiness. In fact, the condition is purely cosmetic, though this is often small comfort. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, our melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment in Dubai is designed to address these causes, alleviate the symptoms and help manage against any potential reoccurrence of the condition.

 

How does our melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment in Dubai work?

Our melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment in Dubai is preceded by a full consultation in which we will assess your skin type, the extent of your condition and your medical history. We use this information to devise the most effective treatment plan, one that is tailored to your particular needs and guaranteed to provide you with the best results possible. We typically advise our patients that their skin not be tanned before commencing treatment.

At the start of your treatment session, your skin will be cleaned and exfoliated to remove any dead skin cells. Afterwards, a face mask containing all the necessary active ingredients will be applied by our specialists. As the most effective melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment Dubai has to offer, this treatment will eliminate unwanted skin blemishes including the signs of melasma.

This is possible as the active ingredients penetrate down into the skin delivering the treatment’s full benefits. Cells are turned over and pigmentation is treated; the process works by blocking the formation of melanin and inhibiting the production of enzymes that trigger pigment formation. This enzyme is referred to as tyrosinase.

Once the treatment is finished, the face mask can be removed. Certain symptoms may be observed. Symptoms can include tight and swollen skin, general redness, flaking and peeling (usually after a couple of days) and some itchiness or burning. Results can vary, though generally patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of melasma over time.

As the most effective melasma (de-pigmentation) treatment Dubai has seen, patients usually observe that their skin appears more luminous and their complexion is improved.
