Martinsville NJ, April 7, 2015 — Reflections Center for Skin & Body ( notes that, while melasma has often been called “difficult to treat,” augmenting traditional topical medications with laser melasma treatment has yielded remarkable results for many patients.

Melasma is one or more dark patches of skin that appears on the face. It is more common in women and those with dark skin. It can also occur during pregnancy and in women taking birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy. Heredity also is a factor. The dark spots appear due to excessive melanin production in the area.

“Lasers, used properly, can help reduce melanin in affected areas,” said Dr. Mitchell Chasin, Medical Director for Reflections Center for Skin & Body. “An important component that is critical to successful laser melasma treatment is using the right laser and really dialing in the energy levels — being too aggressive during melasma treatment can actually make the condition worse.”

Reflections has several lasers that are used for treating melasma. Their physicians are trained to be gentle but results-oriented when treating melasma with lasers to ensure the best possible outcome.
