To Our Valued Patients:

 

To protect our office staff and patients, we are requiring that patients wear a mask while in the office.  Due to a national shortage of masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE), we kindly ask patients to bring a mask with you to your appointment.

 

 In order to maintain appropriate social distancing in the office, we are not overlapping scheduled appointments. In order to support this plan, we kindly ask patients not to bring family members or friends to their appointments unless needed for translation or other necessary services. Additionally, if you arrive early, please wait in the parking lot until your scheduled appointment time.

 

Thank you for your understanding,

Drs. Calkin and Boudreaux and the entire CB Team

Brown Spots, Hyperpigmentation & Melasma

Melasma

Face with open pores and melasma before and after make up or treatment concept.
Melasma is a common skin condition where patches of skin on the face turn brown. The most commonly affected areas are the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead and upper lip. Melasma mostly affects women. Causes include exposure to ultraviolet light and hormonal changes resulting from pregnancy or birth control.

Treatments for melasma include:

  • UVA/UVB Sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher
  • Sunblock Lotions
  • Avoidance of Any Irritating Cleansers, Creams or Makeup Products
  • Discontinuation of Birth Control
  • Bleaching Creams including Hydroquinone
  • Glycolic Acid Peels

Treatment by a dermatologist often improves the appearance of melasma and prevents future recurrence.
