The Science of Flaw Correction
Perfect skin just isn’t a reality for most of us, but for those of us who were either born with imperfections or developed them later in life, even having normal skin might seem like an unattainable dream. While we can’t work miracles, our MagnifaSkin clinicians can greatly reduce, or sometimes even completely erase the appearance of these flaws. Contact us today for a free consultation and take the first step to having the appearance you deserve.
Melasma usually affects women between 20 and 50 years of age and appears as brown, tan or blue-gray patches on the face. In pregnant women, the same condition is known as chloasma (or pregnancy mask), and may trigger resultant melasma after pregnancy or make you more susceptible to it, although in most cases chloasma resolves itself after delivery.
The exact causes of melasma are unknown but it is believed to be a condition related to sun and age spots (liver spots) and is likely caused by exposure to the sun. This doesn’t mean that those affected have been overexposing themselves to the sun’s harmful rays, or using tanning beds, although these activities will certainly increase the likelihood of this condition. Some people simply seem more susceptible than others.
Before treating melasma with lasers, it is important to talk to one of our experts. The wrong laser treatment will make melasma worse, not better. Contact us for a free consultation.

Melasma Treatment with the Aerolase LightPod Neo
Actual patients treated for Melasma with the Aerolase Laser.
All laser treatments at MagnifaSkin MedSpa are delivered with the revolutionary new Aerolase® LightPod Neo® medical laser. Delivering light pulses 30 – 50 times faster than other lasers, the Neo provides virtually pain free treatment. In fact many patients report feeling nothing at all other than a slight warming sensation. Other lasers, which deliver higher energy pulses of light at much longer intervals, result in the sensation of having a rubber band snapped against your skin. This is due to the large amount of energy being delivered with each pulse. Because the Neo reduces the amount of energy delivered with each pulse while greatly increasing the number of pulses, energy delivery is ‘smoothed out’, resulting in little or no sensation for your sensitive skin.
