Sudden dark spots on the face aren’t necessarily a sign of concern. Melasma is a common issue, especially in women who are pregnant, and it’s thankfully only superficial. However, just because something doesn’t pose a health risk, it doesn’t mean that we have to accept it. At Infinity Wellness, we provide effective melasma treatments in the form of microneedling. Schedule your consultation to learn more today.


What Causes Melasma?

Melasma is a superficial concern 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 Is This Issue Addressed?

Microneedling can significantly reduce the appearance of melasma. This treatment relies on small needles to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. Moreover, the pinpricks caused by microneedling act as a conduit for topical medications that reduce melasma pigmentation. The inclusion of radiofrequency can further enhance this treatment.

What Can I Expect?

A topical anesthetic will be used during your microneedling session to minimize any discomfort you may feel. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the microneedling handpiece will be glided along the treatment area. This process usually takes less than an hour, but treatment time varies from person to person.
