Are there risks of Moxi laser making melasma worse?

Yes, there is a risk that Moxi Laser could worsen melasma, especially in those with darker skin tones. Here’s why:

  • Melasma and Heat: Melasma is a complex skin condition that is highly sensitive to heat. The thermal energy from the Moxi laser, while gentle, can sometimes trigger the production of more melanin.
  • Individual Sensitivity: Everyone’s skin reacts differently, and some individuals with melasma may be more prone to worsening after laser treatments.

What House of Aesthetics Recommends:

  • Expertise Matters: If you have melasma, seeking treatment from a skin specialist with experience in treating this condition is crucial.
  • Alternatives: We may recommend alternative treatments that are safer and more effective for melasma, like chemical peels, topical therapies, or other light-based options.
