What is melasma?
If you have noticed dark brown/grey patches on your skin then you may be suffering from melasma. Melasma is a form of skin pigmentation that appears in the form of these small, dark patches. It is not a serious condition, and is very unlikely to lead to anything more serious, but it is still an unsightly issue for your skin.
How is is treated?
At Gerka Clinic we use cosmelan to treat the appearance of melasma. At your first session we will apply a layer of cosmelan peels onto the target area, which you must leave on for 6-8 hours. After that, you’ll be given clear instructions on how to apply the cosmelan cream over a six-month period.
Are there any side effects or downtime?
After your first treatment you may see some redness or peeling around the target area. However, these effects are normally mild and tend to clear up quite quickly.
After the first treatment you’ll have to apply the cream at home over a six-month period, during which time you should see progressive improvements for your skin.
