What is Melasma?
Many people have experienced melasma at some point in their lives, which causes areas of dark skin to occur on the face, forearms, and neck. These tan, gray, or brown patches most commonly appear on the forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, or upper lip. Women with darker skin tones have an increased risk of developing the condition, and sun damage or hormonal fluctuations may be the underlying reasons for its occurrence. Our team at Flawless Salon and Medical Spa proudly provides Harmony XL PRO from Alma to address melasma. This innovative approach works through targeted light energy to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Please schedule a consultation at our Butte, MT medical spa to determine if laser-assisted melasma treatments can help rejuvenate your skin's appearance!

"I have so many brown spots formed due to being in the sun for too long. Also, I am forming more wrinkles. Opus has changed the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots. My face looks younger and feels tighter. I have been working on laser hair removal on my arm pits and just with 2 times I have notices great results. Usually, I have to shave daily but with the laser hair removal its every 3 days. Patience has said a few more times and I won't have to shave any longer. Patience is so knowledgeable about all her services she is doing. She is professional and really takes the time to explain how the services are done and what to expect."- LG / Office Visit / May 24, 2022

laser melasma treatment faq
What causes melasma?
Melasma can occur anytime in an individual's life. Generally, melasma happens because of hormone fluctuations during pregnancy and from taking birth control pills. Other causes of melasma include damage from UV rays, stress, and genetics.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
When utilizing Harmony XL PRO laser technology, your provider will focus light-based energy on the hyperpigmentation patches on the top layer of your skin. The laser will break down pigmentation, which your body naturally absorbs. While these spots may look darker initially, they will most likely look less noticeable after a week.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
Although laser options can decrease the appearance of melasma, more patches may appear in the future. We can help determine how many sessions you need to help lengthen your results.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At Flawless Salon and Medical Spa, we base the pricing for laser-assisted melasma treatment on the size of your discoloration and how many appointments you need. Our experts will create a treatment plan to help meet your goals and talk with you about the convenient payment options we offer at our Butte, MT medical spa.
