What is Melasma Laser Treatment?
The original FDA approved laser for treating and reducing melasma, Lutronic’s Spectra dramatically reduces the appearance of those stubborn brown patches and hyperpigmentation. Here at Emmanuel Skinscience MedSpa, we can spot-treat areas big or small and dramatically reduce the appearance and reappearance of those darkened melasma areas. Unlike BBL and IPL, the Spectra Laser does not use heat to seek pigment, but rather, the photo vibrational aspect of the spectra laser physically breaks up pigment into smaller fragments so that the lymphatic system can naturally carry and clear out the pigment. Improved results can be seen in as little as a single treatment, but multiple treatments are recommended for optimal and lasting results. Depending upon the density of the melasma, the number of treatments recommended will vary. A series of treatments every 4 weeks with proper follow-up and UVA/UVB sunscreen protection is our protocol for optimal results.

Melasma Laser Treatment: Frequently Asked Questions
Melasma laser treatment is a procedure that uses light-based energy to reduce the appearance of melasma—a type of discoloration on the face caused by UV exposure and hormonal changes. The laser breaks up the melanin, or pigment in the skin, allowing it to gradually fade away.
Melasma laser treatment works by delivering light-based energy into the area of the skin affected by melasma. This energy encourages the production of new collagen, which helps to lighten the pigmentation and reduce the visibility of spots. Depending on the severity of your melasma, multiple treatments may be needed for optimal results.
Anyone with melasma caused by UV exposure or hormonal changes can benefit from melasma laser treatment. It is an excellent option for those who have tried other forms of treatment such as bleaching creams or chemical peels but found that they did not work adequately. It can also be used in combination with other treatments for optimal results.
You can expect gradual lightening and fading of hyperpigmented areas over multiple sessions. In most cases, complete removal may not be achieved with this procedure alone but significant improvement should be seen after a few sessions. Results may vary from person to person depending on their individual skin type and condition.
The most common side effects associated with melasma laser treatment include redness and swelling in the treated area, as well as some minor discomfort during and/or after the procedure has been performed. In rare cases, infection or scarring can occur in the treated area, so it’s important to only use a reputable professional when undergoing any kind of facial laser treatment.
The cost of melasma laser treatment can vary depending on your location and provider but generally ranges between $200-$1,000 per session. Many providers also offer packages of multiple sessions at a discounted rate if you wish to do more than one session at once. Talk to your provider about your options before committing to any particular plan.
It’s important to research any practitioners you are considering before booking an appointment so you can check their reputation and experience in performing this type of procedure before proceeding with any treatment plans.

Results typically last anywhere from 6 months – 2 years depending on how well you take care of your skin during that time period (e.g., using sunscreen regularly). As long as you protect yourself from UV exposure via proper sunscreen use and protective clothing/accessories, maintaining results should not be too difficult!
