Melasma Treatment in Fort Lauderdale

Be Free From Melasma

Our Dermatologists Specialize in Melasma

Up to 50% of women develop melasma during pregnancy.

However, melasma can affect men and women of any age and race. Although harmless, it’s impossible to determine when and if they will fade on their own.

At Galt Dermatology, our dermatologists can help you reclaim comfort and confidence in your skin through comprehensive melasma treatment in Fort Lauderdale.

What is Melasma?

Melasma is a common and harmless skin condition that causes tan or brown-colored spots to appear on your skin. While melasma most often occurs on the face, it can also affect your arms, neck, back, and beyond. Patients of all races can develop melasma, but people of Latin American, African, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean descent tend to be more susceptible.

What Melasma Treatments Address

How soon you see results from your melasma treatment will depend on lifestyle changes, treatment type, and the nature of your condition. Most patients notice visible improvements within 8 weeks of starting treatment. However, our doctors recommend following your plan and completing your full course of treatment to reduce the chances of your melasma returning.
