Everything You Need to Know About Melasma and Pigmentation Treatment in Sydney

Some benign conditions can result in abnormal skin pigmentation. One of the most common of these is melasma, which is also referred to as the ‘mask of pregnancy.’ While melasma and most other pigmentation issues are primarily cosmetic concerns, there are ways we can treat them. For safe and effective melasma treatment in Sydney, many people have come to rely on Sydney Medical Cosmetics to regain the natural appearance of their skin.

Is There a Cure for Melasma?

Pigmentation issues often appear as darker areas of skin, sometimes resembling brown patches or an overall splotchy appearance. These darkened areas are usually referred to as ‘hyperpigmentation.’ Hyperpigmentation can occur in all skin types and affect people of varying ages and may be indicative of an underlying health condition. In the case of melasma, women who are pregnant or who are taking hormone replacements are those most commonly affected. Given the unsightly appearance that melasma can have, it is not surprising that so many women with melasma are looking for a ‘cure.’

Unfortunately, finding a cure for melasma is not so simple. Once melasma flare-ups appear, they tend to become chronic, and they will likely recur in the future. While there is no known ‘melasma cure,’ there are many ways that flare-ups can be effectively treated so that they do not have to impact your day-to-day life. Some of the best results can be achieved using laser treatment. At Sydney Medical Cosmetics, we offer advanced laser treatment for melasma and all other pigmentation issues.

If you are experiencing melasma or any other form of hyperpigmentation, you should consult a doctor to rule out any severe medical issues. Afterwards, you can explore your treatment options and see how a cosmetic physician may be able to help.

Exploring Your Options for Melasma Treatment

Laser treatment may seem daunting for those who have never considered it before. One of the major benefits of laser melasma treatment, however, is the fact that it is virtually pain-free and you will likely see results almost immediately. The entire procedure is minimally invasive and will not damage your surrounding skin.

As some pigmentation issues can be indicative of something more severe, such as skin cancer, we make sure to screen all incoming patients for malignant lesions before beginning your melasma treatment at our Sydney clinic. However, in the clear majority of cases, we can proceed normally and treat your melasma or other pigmentation problems within a few simple treatments.

If you’re ready to have a more even skin tone and reduce the appearance of your melasma or another pigmentation issue, Sydney Medical Cosmetics is here to help.
