Melasma and Hyperpigmentation at DermWellesley

Are you dealing with an uneven skin tone with prominent spots that appear darker than other areas of the skin? Melasma and hyperpigmentation is a common issue that many people deal with, and it isn’t all that easy to get rid of. Fortunately, DermWellesley proudly provides patients in Wellesley, MA, safe and effective treatments designed to help reclaim their skin.

Treating Melasma and Hyperpigmentation

Aerolase allows patients of all skin types to comprehensively clear their melasma and hyperpigmentation. As a multi-factorial condition that can involve epidermal melanin, dermal melanin, and a vascular component, melasma typically requires a complex treatment regimen to achieve clearance and prevent a recurrence.

How Does Aerolase Neo Work?

The Aerolase Neo helps patients to achieve clearance with a safe, effective, and tolerable treatment by addressing each of these factors. The Neo’s 650 Microsecond laser energy is delivered into the dermis and epidermis to break up melanin deposits while shutting down vasculature and inflammation. Due to the unique parameters of the Neo’s energy, treatment is highly tolerable with minimal risk of adverse effects compared to traditional topical or device treatments for melasma.

Complementing Aerolase Neo With a Chemical Peel

Management of melasma can be challenging and, with topical agents, may require long-term treatment. The Neo, however, can help patients achieve clearance with fewer treatments. For patients who want an accelerated clearance of their condition, the Neo can be combined with a peel in a single treatment session.

First, the Neo helps to break up the epidermal and dermal pigment. Then, the peel may be applied to speed up the cellular turnover of the epidermis. While the Neo may be used alone as a single treatment, the combination of these two treatments offers patients a great “one-two punch” to clear their condition.

What to Expect During the Aerolase Neo Treatment

Aerolase Neo melasma treatments typically take 15-20 minutes. Neo melasma treatments are safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types and all forms of melasma. Treatment may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.
