Age spots, also called “liver” or brown spots, show up as small deposits. Melasma, however, can cover large areas. It can also affect people who’ve had minimal sun exposure, simply due to genetics and hormones.

Are there cures for melasma? Skin-bleaching and dark spot-lightening creams have been widespread, yet they can produce unimpressive results, and some contain unsafe ingredients. Likewise, the safety profile of lasers for dark skin has kept it off-limits, but that’s changed now.

StarWalker has changed the face of melasma treatment for people with all skin tones, and the results are better than ever.

Melasma & Rosacea Q & A

What are melasma and rosacea?

Melasma and rosacea are common conditions that cause skin pigmentation issues. Rosacea is associated with blushing, swelling, or redness, and melasma causes darker brown patches or spots. While both of these conditions aren’t cause for concern, they might make you feel self-conscious. Treatment at Medrein Health & Aesthetics offers you clear, beautiful skin.

What are the risk factors for melasma and rosacea?

Common risk factors for developing rosacea, melasma, or other skin pigmentation concerns include:

  • Family history or melasma or rosacea
  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Smoking
  • Having skin that burns easily in the sun
  • Hormone treatments or contraceptives
  • Being female
  • Having fair skin

The exact cause of developing skin issues isn’t always known. Fortunately, treatments at Medrein Health & Aesthetics are highly effective and long-lasting.

Do I have melasma or rosacea?

To find out if you have melasma and rosacea, Dr. Mikki discusses your symptoms and medical history. She takes a look at affected skin on your face or other areas of your body to determine what treatment will be right for you!

How are melasma and rosacea treated?

The most common treatments for melasma and rosacea include:

It's important to always protect your skin from the sun using sunscreen or protective clothing. Dr. Mikki may prescribe medicines to clear up your skin. Laser treatment is a noninvasive way to disperse pigmented cells and achieve the even-toned skin you long for.

If you’re a candidate for PRP or PRF, Dr. Mikki takes a sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the solids from the liquid plasma. She then collects the platelets and reintroduces them into the clear plasma, creating a concentrated solution that she applies to skin treated with microneedling to enhance anti-aging results. 

Dr. Mikki may combine more than one type of treatment to offer highly effective anti-aging results that include clearer skin and an exceptional quality of life. She makes changes to your treatment regimen whenever needed to ensure beautiful skin with a healthy glow.
