SkinBRIGHT® Membership

Treating discoloration can be a frustrating experience, as it is a difficult condition to manage, lasers can make it worse, and certain skincare treatments can be ineffective. We see many patients who are incredibly skeptical in starting a new skincare routine, because they have tried so many treatments and invested so much money without results.

What is Melasma?

One of the most common forms of discoloration that we treat at La Jolla Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center is Melasma.

Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder that causes brown patches to appear on the skin, primarily on the face. The most common areas for melasma to appear are on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip and nose. Melasma can be due to sun exposure, hormonal changes during pregnancy or from birth control.

Melasma is a chronic skin condition that needs to be managed 12 months out of the year. Chronic conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and melasma take constant management and are never “cured,” which is why we developed an ongoing membership to help you manage your skin condition.

What is the treatment for Melasma?

Dr. Shirazi sees her Melasma patients every 2-3 months to adjust their skincare regimens depending on the status of their discoloration and the seasons/time of year. CONSISTENCY is one of the most important factors in resolving discoloration, and adherence to a skincare regimen and sun protection is of upmost importance.

Dr. Shirazi’s melasma patients are on a combination of both “over-the-counter” AziMD Skincare that can be purchased online AND prescription AziMD products, which can only be issued to patients of Dr. Shirazi who have been treated via virtual appointment.

For the best results in completely treating your discoloration or for more complex conditions such as melasma, a medical evaluation and other prescriptions may be necessary in order to achieve desired results.

How does delivery work?

Once you’ve received an evaluation from Dr. Shirazi through the Photo Evaluation portal, we will send you a personalized custom link to shop your recommended skincare and prescriptions right form our online store, at below retail prices.

Since Melasma treatment needs to be continually managed and products need to be changed based on the season, your skin’s progress, and sensitivities, we will remind you via email to submit another set of photos for Evaluation every 60 days, and Dr. Shirazi will update your recommended skincare kit and send you a new link.

What kind of discount am I getting?

SkinBRIGHT® members receive AziMD Skincare Products and AziMD Prescriptions below retail value and tailored skincare regimens.

What are the terms of the SkinBRIGHT® Membership?

There is no commitment, sign-up fee or monthly cost for the SkinBRIGHT® membership program. However, as Melasma is a chronic skin condition that needs to be managed 12 months out of the year, to achieve your desired results, patients must be compliant with their regimen 12 months of the year.

When will I have my photo consults?

A photo consult is strongly recommend every 60 days. Dr. Shirazi will adjust your prescription skincare regimen if needed at each photo consult.
