What is Melasma?

Melasma is a common skin condition that causes patches of dark, discoloured skin to appear on the face, neck, and other areas of the body. It occurs when the cells that produce pigment in the skin (melanocytes) begin to produce too much melanin.

It is more common in women than men and can be triggered by hormonal changes, sun exposure, and genetics.

PicoSure® Pro Means Out with Dark Spots

Euphoria Wellness Spa in Peterborough uses this revolutionary technology so patients can realize effective results. Melasma can be a frustrating and challenging condition to manage, but with advanced treatments like PicoSure Pro many patients are able to achieve clear and even-toned skin.

How the PicoSure® Pro Procedure Works

  • PicoSure Pro laser technology is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultra-short pulses of energy to break down pigmented cells in the skin without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.
  • The PicoSure Pro laser delivers the energy in picoseconds, which is a trillionth of a second, allowing for greater precision and effectiveness in treating melasma. The laser energy targets and is absorbed by the melanin in the pigmented cells, causing them to fragment and break down, eventually being eliminated by the body's natural processes.
  • The PicoSure Pro laser is effective in treating melasma because it targets the deeper layers of the skin where the excess melanin is present without causing damage to the surface layer of the skin. 

Benefits of PicoSure® Pro Over Other Treatments

  • One of the main benefits of PicoSure Pro over other treatments for melasma is that it is a non-invasive and relatively painless procedure. Patients typically describe the sensation as similar to being snapped with a rubber band or feeling a slight burning or tingling sensation. There is a separate chiller that attaches to the handpiece and blows cool air onto the treated area to help minimize discomfort. 
  • Unlike some other treatments, which can cause significant discomfort and require a recovery period, PicoSure Pro treatments are well-tolerated and do not typically require downtime.
  • PicoSure Pro treatments also tend to be faster than other options, with each session typically taking about 15 minutes to complete. Most patients require a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
  • PicoSure Pro treatments are safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones, which may be more prone to hyperpigmentation than other types of laser therapy.
  • Overall, PicoSure Pro is an effective and safe treatment option for those looking to reduce the appearance of melasma and improve the overall quality of their skin without resorting to more invasive procedures.
