This article looks at the treatment options available from topical agents, chemoexfoliation and laser light therapy with an explanation of contraindications and unpredictable results, which can leave the patient and practitioner frustrated. This article clearly identifies the important role aesthetic nurses play in assessing, implementing, managing and evaluating treatment for their patients with melasma gravidarum.
