In brief: Melasma cure?

Melasma is very challenging to treat and there is no cure.
The goal is pigment control. Combination therapy is the typical strategy. Peels, topicals and laser treatments may be used to reduce pigment deposits. Daily spf use cannot be overstated. Consult with a facial cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist that specializes in treatment of melasma and other pigment disorders for a regimen that's best.

In brief: No

Unfortunately no.
Some treatments help but this is a very frustrating condition to treat but even more frustrating for the patient to have.
