Cutting-edge technology and expert care are combined to address numerous forms of skin discolouration, offering solutions tailored to rejuvenate and enhance your skin’s natural beauty.

What is melasma?

Melasma is a common skin condition marked by brown or grey-brown patches, primarily on the face. It occurs due to the overproduction of pigment in the skin, often triggered by sun exposure, hormonal changes, or the use of the oral contraceptive pill. This excessive skin pigmentation results in uneven skin tone and discolouration.

What causes skin pigmentation?

Skin pigmentation, including conditions like melasma, arises from the overactivity of pigment-producing cells in the skin. Factors contributing to this include sun damage, genetic predisposition, hormonal changes (e.g., pregnancy or oral contraceptive pill), and certain medications. These influences lead to uneven pigmentation and changes in skin colour.

What treatment options are there for melasma?

There are several options for treating melasma, each tailored to the individual’s skin condition and the severity of their melasma:

  • Herbal Peels: Exfoliate the top skin layers, promoting new, lighter skin growth.
  • Laser Treatment: Targets pigment-producing cells to reduce dark patches.
  • Skin Needling: Used in conjunction with other skin treatments is very effective.
  • Topical Creams: Includes hydroquinone, corticosteroids, tretinoin, azelaic acid, or kojic acid to lighten dark patches.
  • Sun Protection: Essential to prevent worsening of melasma, including sunscreen use and protective clothing.
  • Oral Medications: Like tranexamic acid, used to reduce melanin production.
  • Combination Therapies: Often, multiple treatments are combined for more effective results.


Am I a good candidate for
pigmentation removal?

Good candidates for pigmentation removal in Sydney are those with skin conditions like melasma, sun damage, or acne scars, who experience uneven skin pigmentation. Factors such as skin type, the extent of pigmentation, and overall skin health are crucial in determining suitability for treatments like laser pigmentation removal or herbal peels.

Are there any possible risks or side effects of melasma treatment?

Melasma treatments, including laser treatment and herbal peels, can have side effects like redness, peeling, or temporary darkening of the treated area. There’s also a risk of skin discolouration, particularly in those with darker skin tones. One of our skin professionals will detail all potential risks during your consultation, ensuring you are fully informed and comfortable before proceeding with treatment.


How is melasma treatment in Sydney
carried out at Face Plus?

At Face Plus Aesthetics we offer two different options for melasma treatment in Sydney:

Herbal Peels

Herbal Peels are a popular method for treating melasma, particularly when dealing with hyperpigmentation. In this procedure, an herbal solution is applied to the skin, which causes the top layers to peel off for days. As the old skin sheds, new, less pigmented skin replaces it.
This treatment can vary in depth from superficial to deep, depending on the type and concentration of the peel used. Superficial peels are typically used for mild cases of melasma, while deeper peels are reserved for more severe hyperpigmentation. The process not only helps in lightening the dark patches but also improves skin texture and tone.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment for melasma involves using concentrated beams of light to target and break down the pigment-producing cells causing hyperpigmentation. Different types of lasers can be used, with some being more suited to lighter skin tones and others designed for darker skin.

The procedure is performed in a series of sessions, with each session helping to gradually lighten the affected areas. Post-treatment care is essential, including protecting the skin from sun exposure to prevent the recurrence of melasma. Laser therapy is often considered for cases where topical treatments and peels are ineffective.


How much does melasma treatment in Sydney cost?

The cost of melasma treatment in Sydney can vary widely depending on the type of treatment and individual needs. Factors such as the severity of the condition, the chosen procedure and the number of sessions required can all influence the final cost.

An accurate cost estimate will be provided at your initial consultation, where a tailored treatment plan will be developed based on your specific condition and goals.

The best melasma treatment in Sydney often includes a combination of approaches such as skin peels, laser treatment, and topical agents.
