Is dermaroller treatment is permanent solution if I use all the precautions after the treatment? Is one time dermaroller treatment to my problem sufficient ?
Unfortunately it isn’t a permanent solution. There isn’t in fact any permanent solution for melasma as it is hormonally induced and has to resolve gradually on its own, with time. We are suppressing it with treatment. But yes after taking dermaroller, it will significantly improve and if you continue to protect yourself from sunlight, and use the creams as prescribed, it is possible that your pigmentation will not recur. However, I do find that quite a few patients need repeat dermaroller sessions 3-4 times a year.
Will pigmentation disappear immediately after the treatment?
It will take 3-7 days for the result to be apparent, post treatment.
Nevus of Ota treated with the QS-ND-YAG Laser
LASER is a very expensive way for tan removal. It carries a much higher side effect risk and longer downtime, which is the reason we do not recommend it as a method of tan removal. However the Q-switched Nd-YAG Laser is works very well for the treatment of melasma and some other pigmentary problems like Nevus of Ota.
The doctor will discuss all these options with you at the time of consultation. Irrespective of the type of procedure employed, you would be asked to use a sunscreen +- topical depigmenting creams.
