Melasma is a common skin condition caused by cell overproduction that changes the color of pigmentation. This harmless skin disorder usually fades within a few months. Some individuals may have this disorder for a lifetime. Melasma treatment is provided at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville for individuals throughout Gwinnett County. These cutting-edge treatments can effectively mitigate symptoms to improve overall quality of life.

Causes of Melasma

Melasma is mainly caused by hormones and radiation exposure. Other potential causes for this skin disorder can include birth control, anti-seizure medication, estrogen, genetics, hypothyroidism and LED screens. Certain cosmetics, soap and skin care products can make melasma symptoms worse. A consultation with a dermatologist can help determine a cause in order to recommend the best course of treatment.

Symptoms of Melasma

The symptoms of melasma include dark brown or blue and gray skin patches. These spots can appear as flat patches or freckles on your face or forearms. It typically affects pregnant women between 20 and 40 years old. You can be at higher risk for developing melasma if you take hormones or oral contraceptives.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
