To Our Valued Patients
 
We have temporarily closed our office in order to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to keep our patients and staff safe. Patients who have appointments on March 18 who we were unable to reach in time to cancel, will be accommodated. We hope to reopen on March 30, 2020. We will be closely monitoring this evolving situation and will keep you informed of any changes via email, Facebook, Instagram and our website.
 
Limited staff will be available in the office for any urgent concerns or medication refills, M – F from 9-3:00 pm. In the meantime, we are continuing to explore the options for tele-dermatology appointments for patients with urgent concerns who don’t wish to travel to the office.
 
We appreciate your patience during this difficult time. Our priority is and always will be the health and welfare of our staff, loved ones, each and every one of you, and our community as a whole.
 
Stay well,
 
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.
