What Is The Melasma Treatment?

Also referred to as Hollywood Peel, it is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that involves using a combination of lasers and carbon lotion to target various skin conditions including melasma. Melasma is a common skin condition that causes discolored patches on one’s skin. These patches can be either flat or freckle-like and can vary in color from light to dark brown or even blue to grey. Some individuals experience worsening of this condition during summers due to an increase in sun exposure and may see improvements in their symptoms in the winter.

How Does It Work In Achieving Its Aim?

The goal is to reduce the production of melanin and improve the skin’s texture by encouraging skin rejuvenation. How it works is by using laser energy, it targets the carbon lotion that is present on the surface of the skin leading to a brightening effect on the patches of melasma. Along with that, it penetrates deeper into the skin giving a boost to collagen production and encouraging skin cell turnover leading to a more radiant complexion and an even skin tone.


The results vary for each individual depending on the severity of the condition. However, after a few sessions, individuals notice the lightening of hyperpigmentation. The overall result is an overall improvement in one’s tone and texture of their skin resulting in a smooth and even appearance.


Ideal Candidate:

  • Have dark spots on their face.

Read the guidelines given below to help you prepare for the treatment. These include:

  • Limit sun exposure prior to the treatment and after it to prevent the condition from worsening. Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day.
  • It is recommended to discontinue using products such as exfoliants as they could lead to the irritation of the skin. Your only focus should be on gentle cleansers and hydrating products.
  • Discontinue taking blood-thinning medications as well as supplements.
  • Avoid any kind of facial treatment such as chemical peels in the days leading up to your appointment.
  • Be sure to discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities you may have with your dermatologist.


The steps involved in the process include:

  • The first step includes consulting with a dermatologist. Discuss your medical history, your current health status, the type of skin you have as well as the severity of your condition. 
  • The area of treatment will be deeply cleansed to remove any impurities. 
  • Next, a thin layer of specialized carbon lotion will be applied to the area. During its application, you may experience a slight cooling or tingling sensation.
  • The dermatologist will then use a Q-Switched YAG laser. The laser energy will be directed at the carbon lotion that is applied earlier to the face. The carbon particles will absorb the laser energy and as they do, they will heat up and vaporize. Eye protection will be provided to you throughout the treatment.
  • Following the laser, the treated area will be cooled using a cooling gel. It will then be cleansed thoroughly to remove any remaining carbon lotion.
