Melasma is a common pigmentation concern that can be treated with Sciton's BBL phototherapy machine. At The MW Clinic London, our experienced ophthalmologist and aesthetic doctor, Miss Meg Minasian, offers BBL phototherapy as a safe and effective option for addressing melasma.
- Melasma is characterised by brown or gray-brown patches of skin that appear on the face, typically on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. Sciton BBL phototherapy uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target and break up the excess melanin in the skin, leading to a more even skin tone.
- During a BBL phototherapy treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver pulses of light to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the excess melanin in the skin, causing it to break up and be absorbed by the body's natural processes. The treatment is quick and relatively painless, and there is no downtime required.
- BBL phototherapy can be an effective option for addressing melasma, as well as other pigmentation concerns such as sun damage and age spots. It is important to note that multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results, and results can vary depending on the severity of the condition.
- At The MW Clinic London, we take a personalised approach to each patient's treatment, tailoring our recommendations to their specific needs and concerns.
- If you are interested in BBL phototherapy for melasma or other pigmentation concerns, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Miss Meg Minasian to discuss your options and determine the best treatment plan for your specific concerns.
