Unusual dark spots can often be a sign of melasma. This condition is dubbed “the mask of pregnancy” because it is most common among pregnant women. While these dark spots can resolve on their own after a few months, some can remain and cause you to feel less confident. The good news is that a relaxing chemical peel treatment is often all it takes to clear up this issue. Get in touch with our team here at Captivate Wellness to learn more about our peels!
What Causes Melasma?
Melasma is caused by the production of overactive cells. This can happen due to overexposure to UV radiation or major hormonal changes (such as those experienced during pregnancy). How this condition begins and how hard it can strike is tough to determine before symptoms appear. The dark spots that characterize this issue may show up very slowly or appear suddenly and without warning.
How Do We Address Melasma?
This condition is stubborn but can fade on its own. This usually happens when a trigger, such as a pregnancy or birth control pills, causes the issue to occur. When a woman delivers her baby or stops taking birth control pills, melasma can fade on its own over time. However, some people struggle with this problem for years or even a lifetime.
That’s where chemical peels come into play. These simple, non-invasive treatments are formulated to exfoliate your skin, eliminating its top layer and allowing clean, youthful skin to form. No downtime is needed after a peel, and the results can appear quickly – helping you feel like yourself again.
What to Expect From Treatment
The chemical peel process is simple. You will recline in a comfortable chair as we assess the needs of your skin. We will then recommend a personalized formula for addressing your concerns. Treatment times vary, and some peeling can be expected after a session, but no downtime is needed. We invite you to explore all of our chemical peel options to find the one that suits you best.
