Melasma is a common condition that causes patches of pigmentation on the skin, particularly on the face. It frequently occurs during pregnancy and can be quite distressing for those who experience it. Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Medical Corporation recently announced a pioneering new treatment that could bring lasting relief to those experiencing melasma.
Introducing Coolaser Treatments for Melasma
Coolaser is a new treatment exclusively offered by Epione Beverly Hills. This non-invasive treatment is FDA approved and combines Blue Light Therapy and Coolaser to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, restoring the skin to its former smooth and clear complexion.
It’s estimated that there are around six million women in the United States who are affected by melasma and that Hispanic-Americans and others with naturally pigmented skin are more likely to develop the condition. Dr. Ourian says that his new treatment will “finally bring hope and healing to those millions of women”.
Melasma can affect both men and women, but it is most commonly seen in pregnant women and those who are taking certain types of birth control. The pigmentation is often seen on the cheeks, forehead, nose and lips. Common treatments for melasma include creams and chemical peels, but these are not always effective and it can take a long time for the condition to fade.
Many women find that even if their melasma fades, it comes back after exposure to the sun. Coolaser treatment offers a simple and effective solution that produces smoother, pigment-free skin with a more youthful appearance. The results of these treatments should last longer than those from more traditional ways of managing the condition.
Restoring Confidence for Women With Melasma
Dr. Ourian’s Coolaser treatment is non-invasive and most women tolerate the treatment well. Some people experience mild swelling and irritation shortly after the treatment, but this can be managed easily with cool packs or ointments. Any irritation fades quickly, leaving fresh and youthful skin behind. In some cases, follow-up treatments may be needed.

Coolaser has attracted a lot of attention from the media since the treatment became available at Epione. Since the laser operates on a different frequency to traditional treatments, it can be used safely on those with darker skin types who may have previously been unable to receive laser treatment. Coolaser doesn’t just treat melasma, either, it can also treat other forms of pigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage and fine lines.
Some women who experience melasma find it impacts their self-confidence, and this makes it harder for them to succeed professionally and socially. Dr. Ourian hopes to support those women with his generally effective and fast treatment, allowing them to enjoy the vibrant lives they had prior to developing the condition.
