Restoration at the Cellular Level
Melasma is notoriously one of the most challenging skin conditions to treat, and it can become a source of insecurity. It occurs as a result of hormonal changes, sun exposure, or even a genetic predisposition. Often appearing during pregnancy, melasma affects women more often than men. Learn more about this treatment and how it works at Ciao Bella with Harmony XL PRO. Book a skin evaluation at our Frisco, TX, facility to determine whether laser melasma treatment can help restore your confidence and renew your complexion.
Numerous people develop melasma, a skin condition that involves the development of darkened skin patches on the face, neck, and forearms. Melasma appears more frequently in females with darker skin tones and may be triggered by sun exposure or hormones, such as those that occur during pregnancy and menopause. Our aesthetic specialists provide melasma treatment at Ciao Bella Medical Spa with the Harmony XL PRO laser. This minimally invasive approach uses powerful laser energy to help reduce the visibility of hyperpigmentation due to melasma.
You can expect your melasma spots to fade and become less visible after your laser treatments.
Laser melasma treatment is an excellent option for those who haven’t found success with lightning creams or other methods of getting rid of their melasma. Our laser, the Harmony XL PRO, allows for multiple modalities when treating melasma where we have the ability to protect the top layer of skin so there is no tissue damage.
For hyperpigmentation issues like melasma, Harmony XL PRO makes an excellent treatment choice.
The laser light energy targets melanin and breaks up pigmentation from the inside out. The result is a virtually painless treatment- with no downtime. In less than two weeks, you’ll notice the pigmentation lightening or disappearing all together. Sessions are around 45 minutes, and you’ll be amazed at the difference in just one treatment. However, our Frisco laser melasma treatment providers may recommend a series of 4-5 treatments for maximum results, depending on the severity of hyperpigmentation. You don’t have to let uneven skin tone wreak havoc on your self esteem! If you’re fed up with melasma or other hyperpigmentation, Harmony XL PRO might be right for you. For more information about Harmony XL PRO and how it can benefit you, please schedule a consultation. We look forward to seeing you.

How Does Harmony XL PRO Work?
The versatile Harmony XL PRO treats a wide variety of conditions. It utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) and potentially a Nd:Yag laser to effectively resurface the skin. But unlike other energy-based treatments that create micro-injuries on the outer layer of skin, the Harmony XL PRO technology leaves this skin unharmed. Instead, it penetrates deep into the underlying layers to create tiny holes in the tissue.
The body is spurred into action, sending healing agents and the building blocks of skin cells to repair the area. Essentially, Harmony XL PRO jump-starts your body’s natural collagen and elastin factory. At Ciao Bella, our laser melasma treatment takes 45 minutes to two hours, depending on the number of areas being treated and the size of those areas. After your consultation, the skin is prepped and (when necessary) numbed with a topical anesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience throughout your treatment. Next, you will be outfitted with protective glasses, and we will begin. You may feel light, tolerable, hot snaps as the laser moves over your skin.
Say Bye-Bye to Dark Spots
Following laser melasma treatment Frisco patients may notice their face feels hot and tight. Any immediate discomfort can be mitigated with a cold compress and/or an over-the-counter pain killer. You may notice any dark spots get darker in the two weeks after treatment; after this period, they will begin to dry up and fall off or they will lighten and diminish. You can expect smoother, more even-toned skin after your first treatment! The dark spots treated will be lighter and less noticeable. We may recommend a series of five treatments to truly learn about your skin and the severity of your hyperpigmentation. However, your skin specialist will better determine the number of sessions you need with a thorough consultation.
Say Bye To Melasma With Harmony XL PRO
Melasma is notoriously one of the most challenging skin conditions to treat, and it can become a source of insecurity. It occurs due to hormonal changes, sun exposure, or even a genetic predisposition. Often appearing during pregnancy, melasma affects women more often than men. No matter the reason, laser melasma treatment with the Harmony XL PRO can help.
Melasma can occur throughout all stages of an individual's life. It's generally thought to be caused by hormones, such as those that occur with pregnancy and birth control pills. Additional factors that are generally related to melasma include sun exposure, stress, and family history.
When using Harmony XL PRO laser technology, our staff will focus a targeted energy beam to treat dark spots on the skin. The light will gently help to diminish melanin (the substance that causes discoloration) so that it can then be absorbed by the body. Even though areas of hyperpigmentation could become darker at first, they should fade after a week or so.
At Ciao Bella Medical Spa, the price of melasma treatment with lasers is calculated based on your goals. Our team will design a treatment plan to help fit your desired outcomes and discuss the convenient payment methods we accept.
While laser therapies can help minimize the look of melasma, darkened areas can still appear in the future. Several procedures may be recommended to help extend your results.
