For melasma, if I’m Indian, which laser would be best?
Often a laser is NOT the best option for melasma, especially if it’s mild. Topical treatment with special high zinc sunscreens, 4% hydroquione preparations, antioxidants, light peels (done by someone with a lot of experience), and using contraceptives that do NOT contain estrogen, is far safer and more effective than a laser.
