TREATMENT

Melasma

Safe and efficient, the non-ablative photothermolysis fractional provides amazing results and can treat deep forms of melasma.  In some cases, treatment may be combined with depigmenting creams before and during two to six months after the treatment.  Sun protection with sunscreen is essential during and after the treatment.
