{Melasma Treatment at vivaMD Medical Spa & Weight Management}

vivaMD Medical Spa & Weight Management employs LightPod Neo by Aerolase in the treatment of Melasma. The LightPod Neo laser is effective and gentle for the treatment of melasma. Its high power laser energy with a unique 650-microsecond pulse duration heats the melasma quickly for higher clearance. It also penetrates much deeper into the dermis as compared with Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers, affecting deeper layers of melanin and providing better clearance.

Melasma is a significant cosmetic concern for many patients. Common factors that contribute to it include genetic predisposition, hormones, sun exposure and inflammation of the skin tissue. Melasma is commonly treated with prescription creams containing bleaching agents, particularly hydroquinone; treatment efficacy can vary, and a variety of side effects are linked to hydroquinone including allergic reactions and skin irritations such as redness, blistering, dryness and itching. LightPod Neo represents a powerful tool for the skin practitioner, enabling treatment of melasma while simultaneously disrupting excessive melanin formations in both the epidermis and the deep dermal tissue.
