TCA Peels for Melasma
You’ve heard of chemical peels before, but TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels are specially designed to improve melasma spots and symptoms. Available in various strengths and intensities, TCA peels encourage the shedding of dead skin, oils, and toxins, while promoting the development of healthier cells.
TCA peels come in superficial, medium, or deep varieties depending on your skin sensitivity and desired outcomes. Past studies have demonstrated a link between TCA peels and the successful reduction of melasma spots.

Pico Laser Treatments for Melasma
For many of us, melasma can be a lifelong condition, starting in our 20s or 30s. For others, a sudden change in hormones (such as pregnancy) can lead to dark splotches on our faces. Thankfully, for both chronic and rapid-onset melasma, pico laser treatments offer a way forward.
The pico laser (so called because it delivers energy in picosecond bursts) works by honing in on the pigment responsible for melasma patches. Light energy translates to heat energy in these pigments alone, breaking them up so that they can be processed out of the body. What remains is smooth, naturally-pigmented facial skin and a boosted sense of confidence with less likelihood for melasma outbreaks in the future.

Melasma Treatment FAQs
Melasma has two known common causes: light and hormones. Melasma occurs when groupings of pigment-producing cells in your skin overproduce, causing discolorations across wider areas. Certain wavelengths of light (UV, infrared) can trigger pigment overproduction, as can sudden changes in hormone levels (such as pregnancy). Additionally, certain medications may contribute to the development of melasma patches. Melasma is also thought to be a hereditary condition in some cases.
Unfortunately, melasma is a chronic condition with no known “cure.” That said, melasma has an abundance of successful treatment options—one of which is bound to suit and make a difference for you. From laser light to skincare products to TCA peels, you can find relief from chronic melasma.
Melasma is most troublesome when it occurs on the face, usually on the cheeks, forehead, chin, nose, and above the upper lip. In less frequent cases, melasma spots can also appear on the chest, arms, and back.
