  2. Complementary treatments such as chemical peeling, laser and IPL, how effective is it and what are the negative effects? Please allow me to explain as follows.

main treatment

The use of topical medications such as hydroquinone (Hydroquinone), arbutin, acelaic acid, vitamin C, soy protein. Mulberry and Mulberry extracts Vitamin A derivatives AHA acid is the main treatment.

For example, hydroquinone must only be prescribed by a doctor in a healthcare setting if used for a long time and not under medical supervision. will cause permanent melasma Which medically called “Ochronosis” (Ochronosis), which is very difficult to treat. or in some cases may be incurable in the past found Hydroquinone has been illegally used in cosmetics that claim to whiten the skin. which negatively affects the user

certain melasma medications There may be steroids added. To reduce irritation from potentially irritating mixtures such as hydroquinone and vitamin A, these drugs should be used only for a short time under the supervision of a physician.

At present, steroid substances are mixed into white face creams, bouncy face creams, and are sold in beauty salons. some hospitals as well as in the online world claiming to instantly whiten skin which resulted in negative consequences and difficult to fix and maintain In the first period after applying a cream containing steroids may whiten the skin But will find that there are many other side effects such as acne, thin skin, capillaries occur. a red rash from the skin being exposed to steroids and when you stop using the cream Your face will turn red and you have to use it again.

– TCA acid : is applied topically for topical peeling. in the area with a blemish It is a peeling of the skin in the deeper layers. After the treatment, black scabs will form, which the scabs usually peel off within 1 week.

2. Using a laser or IPL

This treatment is not recommended in the first place. because the treatment effect is not clear which is different from using a laser to treat freckles because if the power is not set properly And treating it too often can have lasting side effects. such as black cloth

The treatment of melasma with a Q Switch type laser several times in a row. By setting the power to low, there will always be white spots.
