How to differentiate Superficial sunspots/pigmentation (top layer of the Epidermis) from deeper pigmentation Melasma (bottom layer or the Dermis)?

FDA Approved Melasma Tx:

Spectra : Yes 

Picosure: No

Sun Spots are
1. Discrete and have defined borders
2. Darker in appearance because it is more superficial
3. Mostly circular in shape
4. Can occur on any part of the face

Melasma are
1. Bigger than sun spots but the borders are not well defined because it is deeper
2. It is lighter than sunspots because it is deeper
3. Mostly patchy
4. Mostly around cheek area(s) on both sides, although any parts of the face can be involved.

 Below patients some of them have PIH ( pigmented scars) over their melasma from trying to treat initial melasma.   So melasma and PIH is often mixed together.  Both are cleared with same Spectral laser at the same time. 

Melasma IPL Green Laser - Fraxel and Spectra Laser For patients that have Melasma, you will need a laser treatment that can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Since IPL cannot achieve this, the Spectra Laser is the solution for you. Our laser is from Korea and it’s called the Spectra Laser by Lutronic. It is ideal for ethnic skin.

At Skin Perfect Brothers, we’ve been treating Melasma for the past 12 years. We use a laser that involves minimal to zero heat source.  There is no pealing of skin. Unlike other lasers or chemical peel methods, the Spectra laser penetrates deep into the Dermal layer, and shatters the patch of Melasma into dust particles thanks to Shock Wave technology. The lymphatics in the body then removes it by detoxing it out of the body!
