Martinsville NJ, February 18, 2015 — Reflections Center for Skin & Body ( has several types of melasma laser treatment devices that are used to remove melasma, the brown patches that can appear on the faces of women and darken and enlarge over time.

“Some women get a melasma during pregnancy or from hormonal changes that occur during hormonal replacement therapy or the use of birth control pills,” said Dr. Mitchell Chasin, Medical Director for Reflections Center for Skin & Body. “Fortunately, we have a number of very good melasma laser treatment options to relieve this condition.”

Dr. Chasin warns that physicians doing laser treatment for melasma should have extensive experience treating a wide range of melasma conditions. They should also be experienced in using the many different melasma laser treatment devices. This is because the choice of device (or devices) depends on skin type, the density of the melasma and the color of the patient’s skin, and choosing the wrong device or being too aggressive can actually make the condition worse. Many times physicians will use topical medications in conjunction with the lasers to make treatment more effective.
