Melasma Laser Treatment in Dubai.
Melasma normally presents itself as darker pigmented patches on the face with the most common areas including eye-area, forehead, cheeks and upper lip area. It can occur at any age, darkening in the summer and lightning in the winter. Now at our clinics, at La Mar Aesthetic Surgery Centre, we offer a skin treatment procedure to remove Melasma.
How does the treatment work?
Lasers work on irradiating the skin in a very precise manner to target and eliminate the organelles (within skin cells) containing the melanin, also known as melanosomes. Once these melanosomes are destroyed, the body removes the remains through a shedding process. Typically, there is a brief period where the skin becomes hypopigmented and appears lighter than normal. This is then followed by a re-pigmentation phase where the skin tone is restored.
What causes Melasma?
Melasma commonly coincides with hormone fluctuations, particularly estrogen and progesterone. This is why it often appears during pregnancy and has earned the nickname, “mask of pregnancy.” It can also appear on females who are taking oral contraceptives.
Each person genetically has a skin type that may have more melanocytes present in the skin. Therefore, they are more predisposed to pigment conditions when exposed to UVA/UVB. Rays from sunlight cause a biochemical peroxidation process to occur in lipids, a component of the cell membrane. Essentially, the lipids are oxidized, losing electrons to free radicals. As a defense mechanism, melanocytes (structures within skin cells) react to these changes by producing more melanin, which has been described as the skin’s own natural sunscreen.
