Laser removal for Melasma, sun and age spots
What is Melasma?
You may have melasma if you’ve noticed brown patches on your skin. This condition results in hyperpigmentation or overproduction of melanin. Melasma is often mistaken for other skin conditions, such as red or age spots. It affects people of any skin color, involves melanin within the epidermis or dermis microscopic level, and may present as an area of discoloration on the face. It typically requires a complex regimen to achieve a cure and avoid the reappearance of these pigments. Our Melasma treatment in Lebanon helps patients by addressing each factor.
At Crystal Care Clinic, we provide patients of all skin types with a comprehensive treatment that clears their melasma and hyperpigmentation!
Our 650-microsecond laser energy is delivered into the dermis and epidermis to break up melanin deposits while shutting down vasculature and inflammation. The treatment is highly tolerable with minimal risk of adverse effects compared to traditional topical or device treatments for melasma.
Management of melasma can be challenging and, with topical agents, may require long-term treatment. Our laser treatment, however, can help patients achieve clearance with fewer treatments. The laser treatment can be combined with a peel in a single treatment session for patients who want accelerated approval of their condition. First, the laser helps to break up the epidermal and dermal pigment. Then, the peel may be applied to speed up the cellular turnover of the epidermis.
Who can have this treatment?
This treatment benefits anyone experiencing any form of melasma, pigmentation, sun damage, or age spots, regardless of age. During your consultation, our doctor will discuss with you, assess the severity of your pigmentation and explain the benefits of this treatment for your skin type.
How many treatments do I need?
We will determine the number of treatments you will need depending on the type of pigmentation you have. However, you will see an improvement after just one treatment. You must commit to the recommended number of treatments at the proper interval for these results to last.

What is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation?
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that results from an injury to the upper layers of the skin. The area surrounding the injury becomes inflamed and injured, causing small blood vessels to break. This inflammation causes the skin to become red, swollen, and tender. As the injured area heals, it becomes discolored, and dark brown or black spots appear on the skin.

Various things cause skin discoloration, including acne, aging, and sun damage. To help reduce the appearance of dark spots on your skin, you should use a gentle cleanser and apply broad-spectrum sunscreen. You can also use a skin-lightening product to help even the discoloration on your face.
