What is Melasma?
Countless people develop melasma at times in their lives, which occurs when irregular patches of darkened skin show up on the face, neck, and forearms. These gray, tan, or brown patches generally develop symmetrically over the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip, or chin. Melasma occurs more often among women with darker skin colors and is thought to be caused by sun exposure or hormonal fluctuations, such as those that occur during menopause and pregnancy. Our team performs melasma treatments at Cameron Wellness Center and Spa with Harmony XL PRO laser technology from Alma. This minimally invasive treatment works through gentle laser energy to help diminish the appearance of darkly pigmented areas. Schedule a skin evaluation at our Salt Lake City, UT facility to determine if laser treatment for melasma might help increase your self-confidence and refresh your skin's appearance!

What causes melasma?
As a common skin condition, melasma can occur anytime throughout life. It's generally thought to be the result of hormonal fluctuations, like those that accompany birth control medications and pregnancy. Less prevalent sources that are commonly associated with melasma are damage from UV rays, stress, and a genetic predisposition.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
To perform melasma treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser, our team will direct a targeted beam of light into darkly pigmented areas on the skin. The laser will gently help to diminish pigmentation, which can be absorbed naturally by your body. While areas of hyperpigmentation could take on a darker appearance at first, they should diminish after a week.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
Even though laser options can work to lessen the appearance of melasma, new brown, gray, or tan spots could develop in the future. A series of visits might be recommended to help lengthen your results.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At Cameron Wellness Center and Spa, the pricing for treatment for melasma with laser technology is calculated according to personal skin concerns. Our experts will customize a treatment plan to help fit your desired outcomes and talk with you about the simple payment methods accepted at our Salt Lake City, UT facility.
ClearLift starts at $350 with an average treatment time of 60 minutes. Recovery time is 1-3 days and the next appointment should be every 4 weeks.
