Do you know the difference between dark spots and melasma? In this blog post, DrD explains the two skin conditions and advises on the best treatment options.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a form of bright energy that delivers a diffuse bundle of controlled light with the ability to penetrate the skin and heal from the deepest layers of the dermis all the way to the surface without creating skin damage.
Melasma is characterized by brown patches, usually irregular in size; that can appear on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, and nose. Women with a strong history of sun exposure are particularly at risk for developing melasma. Other factors to consider are: genetic predisposition and hormones.
