Chloasma Treatment in Vancouver & Burnaby

Chloasma is a skin condition that is characterized by dark skin patches of irregular shapes on your face. The condition, also known as melisma, mostly affects women of reproduction ages and is triggered by sun exposure and hormonal changes. When it affects pregnant women, it becomes chloasma.
The condition is more prevalent in people with a darker-skinned complexion (those from Asia, Latin countries, North Africa, and the Middle East). It is harmless, but it can make victims become more self-conscious and affect their self-esteem.

If you are looking to restore your skin’s glory by undertaking a chloasma treatment, Orchid Skin Care is proud to be at your service.

How Much Will My Chloasma Treatment Cost?

The cost of chloasma treatment can and will vary depending on the individual circumstances and the treatment method of choice. Once you come to our clinic, we will determine the severity of the condition and the treatment technique and advice accordingly.
Our clinic uses state-of-the-art equipment to take UV photographs that allow us to see how far the condition has gone below your skin’s lower layers. We also do a further physical examination and dig deep to know your medical history. The information will help our dermatologists recommend a specialized treatment and give you the advice you need.
Please note that you may need several treatments before your skin condition is completely treated. Knowing the exact figures for your treatment would therefore be difficult. However, a visit to our clinic will clear things up and allow you to plan your budget accordingly.
We are looking forward to seeing you at Orchid Skin Care.

FAQ

Chloasma is a skin condition that causes dark skin patches on the face. It is more common in women and is triggered by sun exposure and hormonal changes.

Chloasma is more common in women, especially those who are pregnant or have hormonal imbalances. It is also more common in people with a darker skin complexion.

The most common symptom of chloasma is the appearance of dark skin patches on the face. These patches are usually irregular in shape and can be anywhere from a few millimeters to a few centimeters in size.

Chloasma is usually diagnosed by a dermatologist. The dermatologist will examine your skin and ask about your medical history. They may also take a biopsy of the affected skin to confirm the diagnosis.

Chloasma can be treated with a variety of methods, including:

  • Topical creams and ointments
  • Laser therapy
  • Light therapy
  • Chemical peels 
  • Microdermabrasion

The time it takes for chloasma to go away depends on the severity of the condition and the treatment method used. Most people see some improvement within a few weeks of treatment, but it may take several months for the dark skin patches to completely disappear.

Chloasma is not permanent, but it can be a very persistent condition. In some cases, the dark skin patches may fade away on their own after a few months or years. However, for most people, chloasma will require treatment to completely go away.

There is no sure way to prevent chloasma, but there are some things you can do to reduce your risk, such as:

  • Avoiding sun exposure, especially during the peak hours of the day
  • Using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day
  • Wearing a hat and sunglasses when you are outdoors 
  • Managing your hormonal imbalances, if you have any

There are a few things you should avoid if you have chloasma, such as:

  • Using harsh soaps or cleansers on your face
  • Exfoliating your face too often
  • Using tanning beds 
  • Taking certain medications, such as oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy
