Spectra Melasma Treatment

/Spectra Melasma Treatment


What is Melasma?

Melasma is a very common skin problem that produces patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration that typically appears on the upper cheeks, upper lip, forehead, and chin.

Melasma is caused by melanin, the natural substance in cells that give color to skin, hair, and eyes.  Because melasma creams have had limited success and the heat of traditional laser treatments could actually darken these spots, there has never been a truly effective treatment for melasma.  That is, until now.

How the Spectra Laser Can Help

The Spectra laser can be used to successfully treat melasma and hyperpigmentation in all skin types.   During a series of quick treatments, the Spectra laser destroys abnormal brown pigment associated with melasma patches, restoring a more uniform skin complexion with improved texture and smaller pore size.  Your clinician can help determine if Spectra or another one of our other melasma treatments is best for you.

The Spectra Melasma Treatment has many benefits, including:

  • Reduces and eliminates appearance of melasma.
  • Even out skin tone.
  • Long-term results.
  • No downtime.
  • Safe for most skin types.
  • Comfortable procedure.

During the treatment, a light layer of carbon mask is put on the client’s face and then multiple passes of laser energy is applied.  The treatment is PAINLESS and has NO downtime.   It is safe for most skin types, yields long-term results, evens out skin tone, and leaves skin feeling smoother with a youthful glow.

This exciting treatment is a gradual process that requires multiple sessions, but produces effective, long-lasting results.  The number of sessions depends on the severity of your melasma. Plus, there is no downtime, so you can return to your everyday routine right away! Seeing the professionals at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa is the first step to a more beautiful you!
