Best outcomes are achieved with a series of 5 sessions, spaced a fortnight apart.

        What is the procedure like?

        Melasma treatment with the nano Spectra laser is gentle & fast, with each session taking less than 10 minutes to perform. The entire procedure is painless with zero recovery time. 

        How many pico laser sessions will I require?

        *Melasma is a medical condition. We can improve most, but not all cases of melasma. 10 to 15% of cases are resistant to medical therapy, including lasers.


        Our clinic provides competitive melasma laser packages with settings predetermined by our dermatologists & senior laser nurses. As a guide- 

        Single treatment Nano laser (melasma settings) $290

        What is the difference between Picosure & Nano Spectra laser for melasma treatment?

        Nano Spectra laser is a cost effective option for patients wanting to improve their melasma pigment, however the Picosure Pro is the leading laser for melasma, giving between 2-3 times faster results compared to Nano Spectra laser, with virtually no downtime. As a guide-


        Treatment type Speed of melasma clearance  Recovery  Cost per treatment 
        Picosure Pro +++ Super fast 30 – 45 minutes $$
        Nano Spectra laser + Slow 5 – 10 minutes $
        Cosmelan or Dermamelan peel +++ Super fast 7 to 10 days $$$$

        How do lasers compare to Cosmelan or Dermamelan peels?

        Though we offer Cosmelan, Dermamelan & Melapeels, lasers has many advantages over chemical peels in the context of melasma management, namely-

        • Better results with lasers
        • Less costs 
        • No downtime (peels require 7-10 days of recovery)
        • Better remission rate with Picosure Pro
        • Less chances of rebound & or side effects

        Will all cases of melasma respond to lasers?

        Our hit rate is over 85%. Resistant cases include dermal melasma or rebound melasma due to microneedling. Patients with a history of thyroid disorders are also more resistant to treatment. Your treating clinician will discuss the implication of your pigment pattern during the consultation.

        How do we incorporate lasers into your melasma treatment & maintenance protocol?

        At Cutis Dermatology we tailor each and every melasma case, taking into account your age, pigmentation onset, clinical findings such as depth of pigmentation, location as well as your ethnicity, lifestyle and where you live. From there our clinical team will discuss the best option for you. As a guide-

        • We rotate treatment topicals; eg. HQ, ascorbic acid, arbutin, botanicals, azelaic acid.
        • We formulate a laser package around your pigment taking into account the above variables.
        • In some cases we ‘pulse’ oral medications, based upon your history & clinical findings.

        Are lasers the best treatment for pigmentation?

        For hormonal causes of pigmentation such as melasma, Picosure Pro provides superior outcomes compared to Nano Spectra lasers, however they are adjunct to medical therapies including pigment inhibitors & vascular modifying tablets.

        Will nano spectra laser treat all types of pigmentation?

        Different types of pigment will respond to different lasers. Your clinician will discuss what types of pigment will resolve with the Nano Spectra laser. For better results, you may want to consider pico lasers; either Picosure Pro or Picoway laser.

        How are we different from other clinics that offer lasers?

        Our dermatologists & nurses are one of the most experienced laser operators in Australia, having worked with light based devices for over 20 years. We not only perform the procedure, but teach nationally & internationally. Our practice has produced numerous peer reviewed publications on the use of lasers for melasma.


        Dr Davin Lim & Allison Webb are key opinion leaders for Cynosure with their Picosure system & Candela, with their Picoway laser. We employ special settings on these devices to ensure the best results for our melasma patients. 

        How do I know if this laser is the correct treatment for me?

        At Cutis Dermatology we employ over 40 laser & energy devices. This ensures that you are receiving the most technologically advanced pigment removal for your skin. 


        Book a consultation with our nurses or dermatologists to see what is the best treatment for skin concerns.

        Do lasers cure melasma?

        No, however laser treatment can place melasma in remission for variable periods. Most patients will benefit from maintenance therapy which includes the use of lasers, topical pigment blockers & systemic agents to modulate pigment stimulation. 


        Your treating clinician will discuss the concept of rotation therapy, including the integration of lasers for managing your melasma pattern.
