An overview of melasma
An extremely common skin condition, melasma occurs overwhelmingly in women, though men can be affected as
well. Although the condition typically develops on the face, the dark patches can occur on any part of the
body that is exposed to the sun. The development of melasma is caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy
- Hormone therapy
- Birth control pills
- Sun exposure

At Marcus Medical Spa, we take great pride in our ability to effectively treat and resolve melasma for our
discerning clients. As such, we are proud to offer the following options for among the best melasma
treatment Los Angeles has available:
The ActiveFX laser uses the latest fractional technology to treat skin that is affected by melasma and
other pigmentation issues, with very minimal downtime.
Fractional CO2 Laser.
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a highly effective, noninvasive way to treat a wide variety of skin
conditions – including melasma and other skin pigmentation disorders. It also stimulates collagen production
and encourages the skin to replenish itself from the inside out, ensuring a healthy long-term result.
Our chemical peels are particularly helpful for clients suffering with melasma. The treatment involves
using a powerful acid solution to help remove the damaged outermost layers of skin, along with any imperfections
that exist. In this way, the chemical peel treats the dark patches of color that concern you most and
reveals a brand new, undamaged layer of skin.
