If you’ve been suffering with melasma that’s not reacting well to treatments, or is maybe even getting worse after lasers, chemical peels, or skincare trial-and-error, this is a treatment our doctors would love to discuss with you.

If you’ve been suffering with melasma that’s not reacting well to treatments, or is maybe even getting worse after lasers, chemical peels, or skincare trial-and-error, this is a treatment our doctors would love to discuss with you.

Tranexamic acid works wonderfully for dark spots when they’re caused by melasma, and when it’s used either as a prescription pill or injected into the skin directly. There are more risks with taking tranexamic acid as a pill since it will interact with all of your body and not just the skin on your face (unlike when it’s injected).

Tranexamic Acid (often abbreviated as TXA or TA) is a synthesized amino acid that is used to treat moderate to severe melasma, especially in patients that have not had success with other treatments like lasers, skincare (sunscreen), and other prescription medication. TXA Restore uses precision micro-injection to deliver this groundbreaking drug along with other brightening agents like vitamin C, in a safer, more effective treatment.

How is Tranexamic Acid Used to Treat Melasma?

TXA Restore to Treat Melasma

Tranexamic Acid (abbreviated as either TA or TXA) can be delivered in a variety of formats (pills, topicals, injections, etc.), but it always functions the same way to treat melasma. This synthesized amino acid interrupts the creation of new melanocytes, which are the cellular precursors to melanin, the cause of the dark brownish-grey patches that are characteristic of melasma. You can learn much more about TXA and how it’s used to treat melasma on our tranexamic acid page.

During TXA Restore, Tranexamic Acid is Precision-Injected Using A Computer-Controlled Micro-Injection System

This unique treatment overcomes the main obstacles we as doctors have known for some time as the best way to use TXA in treating melasma, which is to inject it into the layers of the skin. Previously, injecting TXA relied on the doctor’s hand precision and endurance and was a long and arduous process of repeating hundreds of tiny injections with precision throughout the entire face. It was nearly impossible for both patient and doctor.

This new treatment technology harnesses a computer to manage the flow of Tranexamic Acid and other brightening agents like vitamin C through hollow-tipped needles. It also controls the depth of injections, and it does this with a micro-needling-esque handpiece that delivers many, many injections with each stamp. The process is precise, much faster, and much more comfortable for the patient. The experience for the patient is most similar to an RF microneedling treatment.
