Melasma is a skin condition where your skin's melanocytes, or color-producing cells, create additional pigment for unknown reasons. It is frequently referred to during pregnancy as chloasma, or the mask of pregnancy.
Chloasma is an aesthetic issue. It has no effect on your baby and doesn't signal any other problems with the pregnancy.
A typical side effect of hormonal changes that may occur during pregnancy is skin discoloration.
It may manifest as hyperpigmentation, freckles, brown spots, age spots, and other conditions.
For our patients at Meddo Derma Clinics, we use laser therapy to alleviate such skin discoloration.
After giving birth and going through labor, mothers frequently find this treatment useful in recovering their cosmetic pre-pregnancy skin tone without the discoloration and freckles.
The powerful pulsed light laser, which targets and burns up the discoloured cells to diminish their pigment, can treat uneven skin tone and pigmentation. To discover more about your options, get in touch with our office right away.
You can regain the skin you cherished before becoming pregnant and going through hormonal changes. The laser therapy is quick, uncomplicated, and painless.
For obvious safety reasons, we do not advise undergoing this treatment while pregnant. It would be best to postpone aesthetic laser treatment until after childbirth and delivery are complete.
