Melasma Protocol


Melasma is a chronic skin disorder that presents as symmetrical, blotchy, brown facial pigmentation. This is sometimes called Chloasma, but as this means green skin, the term melasma (brown skin) is preferred. Melasma is more common in women than in men and generally starts between the age of 20 and 40 years, but it can begin in childhood or not until middle age.

There is no one cause of melasma. The pigmentation is a result of the overproduction of melanin (pigment).

Known triggers for melasma include sun exposure and sun damage, pregnancy, hormone treatments such as oral contraceptive pills and hormone replacements, certain medications, and underactive thyroid.

There are different types of melasma, epidermal, dermal, and mixed. These all respond differently to treatment; therefore, it is important to have a consultation with one of our skilled therapists who can advise the best course of treatment for you and your skin concerns.

The Melasma Protocol treatment is suitable for all skin types.

The procedure time takes no more than 60 minutes.

Your skin may become dry and flaky following your treatment. You may experience some light skin shedding; this usually occurs 1 – 2 days after your treatment and can last for 3-4 days. In rare cases this can last up to 12 days. Following your first treatment, you will be given an intense moisturiser which will help hydrate your skin during this stage.

Results will vary depending on the individual’s skin type and the type of pigmentation being treated. In most cases, patients with melasma will need to continue the use of the homecare mask and/or receive future maintenance treatments in order to maintain their results.
