What is Melasma?
Melasma is a common skin condition that can come at any age. These irregular areas of darkened skin tend to appear on the face, neck, and forearms and are typically tan, gray, or brownish. Melasma appears more often in women with darker skin types and is thought to be caused by sun damage or hormonal fluctuations, such as those that accompany pregnancy and menopause. Our team at New Life Medical Centers offers melasma treatment using the cutting-edge Harmony XL PRO laser from Alma. This innovative option utilizes powerful light energy to help diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation that is related to melasma.

New Life Medical Centers Reviews
Amazing doctor!!! I called him “my daughter’s angel” She was suffering with a “mental” disorder, unknown causes or cured. I knew this diagnosed was wrong. My daughter is literally living a New Life. Listen to your gut! Don’t believe everything that your regular doctors say to you, they don’t want to waste their time trying to find the root of you problem, they just send you medications to “stop” symptoms without the real cause.
I saw an ad for New Life Medical Center when I was researching causes for foot pain. I started treatment for neuropathy and I’m halfway through my treatment plan. It’s amazing how much better I feel already!
Dr. Hirshorn provides a very thorough examination of each patients medical history and current issues and uses the best diagnostic tools current science has to offer. Our family believes that discovering and treating root causes of disease is the best root to complete healing. Every member of the New Life staff has been wonderful to work with.

What causes melasma?
As a prevalent skin concern, melasma can occur anytime throughout a person's life. It's commonly believed to be caused by hormonal changes, including those that are experienced with birth control medications and pregnancy. Other factors that are commonly related to melasma include damage from UV rays, stress, and a genetic predisposition.
How does laser treatment for melasma work?
When utilizing the Harmony XL PRO laser, your technician will direct a targeted energy beam into darkly pigmented areas on the top layer of your skin. The laser will gently work to break down hyperpigmentation so that it can be absorbed naturally by your body. While areas of hyperpigmentation may darken at first, they should fade after about a week.
Does melasma come back after laser treatment?
While laser options can work to decrease the appearance of melasma, additional pigmented spots may emerge as time goes on. Additional procedures may be recommended.
What is the cost of laser melasma treatment?
At Aesthetics by New Life, the cost of laser melasma treatment is based on personal needs. Our team will develop a treatment strategy to help fit your desired outcomes and talk with you about payment options taken at our Greenville, SC office.
