Melasma effect women from all backgrounds and is highly influenced by hormonal changes. These changes can be the contraceptive pill, pregancy or hormonal therapies, leaving a mask of pigment which is further effected by sun exposure.

Melasma is a chronic condition causing hyper-pigmentation of the skin. It is often identified as dark brown or greyish patches on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and chin. Our UV camera, the SkinObserv Analysis, is able to expose exactly where melasma has spread on the face, before it has become more apparent on the surface of the skin. This image allows our therapists to target the pigmentation with accuracy. Due to melasma’s chronic nature, melasma is often prepared with a course of topical retinoids or a short series of chemical peels to bring the pigmentation closer to the surface of the skin to better target with IPL or Ruby, Fractional, Alexandrite lasers. The laser technology emits highly focused length and depth pulses to break down undesired melanin for a result of even and toned skin. Regular treatments are required to maintain results.

During your consultation, your therapist will assess the area of pigmentation with a face to face assessment and our SkinObserv Analysis. You will be informed of pre and post care for optimal results and your therapist will conduct a laser test patch to ensure your skin reacts well before proceeding with treatment at least 48 hours later.


What does the treatment involve?

Depending on your skin, you may be advised to start a course of chemical peels or using topical retinoids such as tretinoin to prepare the skin for laser treatment to achieve the best results. When the skin is ready, the therapist will target your pigmentation with the laser and complete the treatment with an application of SPF 50. You will be advised to avoid sun exposure for at least 2 weeks post-treatment.

"I simply cannot rate this place highly enough. I’d give it 10 stars if I could. All the staff at Body-vie are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable. Dr Weber is someone with whom I trust implicitly. I went to another local aesthetics clinic before this one for a consultation and walked out feeling disheartened and very confused, I was made to feel like I needed to spend a lot of cash in order to get the desired result.
