What is Melasma?

Melasma, also referred to as chloasma, happens when uneven patches of darkened skin show up on the face or forearms. These tan or brown patches typically occur symmetrically around the forehead, cheeks, nose, or upper lip. The appearance of melasma sets it apart from other skin conditions that cause dark patches on the skin. Melasma is a common condition and is found more frequently in women. It may be caused by sun damage or by hormonal changes, such as menopause and pregnancy. People with darker skin types are more inclined to melasma than people with lighter complexions. One of our licensed team members treats melasma utilizing a laser at Living Water Medical Spa in Johnson City, TN.

How Does Laser Melasma Treatment Work?

Before your laser melasma treatment starts, we might apply a topical numbing gel to lessen discomfort. A team member will then pass the laser handpiece over your skin where the non-ablative laser energy will be delivered into melasmic patches. The light energy will effectively work to diminish pigmentation, which your body can absorb naturally to reveal a brighter, more even skin tone. Usually, patients only need a few treatments; however, depending on their skin condition, several treatments may be required to achieve the best results.

I went in for treatment for a vein on my nose and I left with the vein already disappearing! Dr. Berry was so kind during the entire process and even took the time to show me how the process works! He knew exactly how to treat my vein in the most effective way, as I have already had 6 treatments at a different place with no results. The staff in the office made me feel so welcomed, they were all smiling and so friendly! I would recommend anyone as my experience all around was phenomenal!!!

I saw Dr.Berry for treatments for my varicose veins. He and each of his employees treated me with the upmost respect, compassion and care during my visits.The main reason I chose Dr Berry is the fact his practice is a faith based practice. I have recommended Dr Berry to friends and will continue to do so.
