#Melasma Treatment

Understanding Melasma

Melasma is often triggered by hormonal changes, sun exposure, and genetic predisposition. It commonly affects women, particularly during pregnancy (known as chloasma or "the mask of pregnancy"), but it can also occur in men and individuals of all ages and skin types. Melasma patches are typically brown or grayish-brown in color and can vary in size and shape.

What is melasma?

The exact cause of melasma is not fully understood, but it is believed to be influenced by factors such as hormonal changes (e.g., pregnancy, oral contraceptive use), sun exposure, genetics, and certain medications or cosmetics. Hormonal fluctuations, such as those experienced during pregnancy or while taking hormonal contraceptives, can trigger or exacerbate melasma.

Melasma Treatment Process at AlKhaleej Clinics

Initial Consultation::

  • The process usually begins with a consultation with a dermatologist or skincare specialist. They will examine your skin, discuss your medical history, and diagnose the condition as melasma.

Skin Care Regimen:

  • Dermatologists often recommend a daily skincare routine tailored to address melasma. This usually includes gentle cleansing, sunscreen with high SPF, and topical treatments such as hydroquinone, retinoids, or kojic acid.

Chemical Peels:

  • Chemical peels containing ingredients such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can help exfoliate the skin, reduce pigmentation, and improve overall skin tone.

Laser Therapy:

  • Laser treatments such as fractional laser resurfacing or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy may be used to target and break down excess melanin in the skin, resulting in a more even complexion.


  • Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin's surface to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. It can also be combined with topical treatments to enhance their effectiveness in treating melasma.

Ongoing Support:

  • Our team is committed to providing ongoing support and guidance throughout your melasma treatment journey. We'll schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, assess treatment efficacy, and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
