Melasma before and afterAre you struggling with stubborn melasma that just won’t fade away? Try the innovative combined treatment approach using ND YAG and Fractional CO2 lasers at Sydney Plastic Surgery. Melasma, a common skin condition characterized by dark patches on the face, can be challenging to treat, but with our advanced laser technology and expertise, we can help you achieve clearer, more even-toned skin.

Melasma is a complex skin condition characterized by brown or grayish patches, typically appearing on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip, and chin. While the exact cause of melasma is not fully understood, factors such as hormonal changes, sun exposure, and genetic predisposition can contribute to its development. Melasma can be difficult to treat and often requires a comprehensive approach to achieve satisfactory results.

How ND YAG & Fractional CO2 lasers work:

Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment

ND YAG Laser: The ND YAG laser targets melanin, the pigment responsible for darkening the skin in melasma patches. By emitting high-energy light pulses, the laser breaks down excess melanin, leading to a reduction in pigmentation and a more even skin tone. ND YAG laser treatments are safe for all skin types and can be customized to target specific areas of concern.

Fractional CO2 Laser: Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a highly effective treatment for improving skin texture, tone, and pigmentation irregularities. By delivering precise beams of laser energy to the skin, Fractional CO2 stimulates collagen production and promotes skin renewal, resulting in smoother, healthier-looking skin. When used in combination with ND YAG laser therapy, Fractional CO2 can further enhance the results of melasma treatment by addressing underlying pigmentation issues and promoting overall skin rejuvenation.
