Annoying skin conditions can happen to anyone, no one is immune. Even celebrities deal with skin issues that plague them that they struggle to properly treat and get rid of.
This was certainly the case when Jenna Dewan Tatum started noticing patchy sections of skin on her face following the birth of her daughter, Everly. The hormonal switch of pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can sometimes cause the skin to change drastically. This was the case for the dancer and actress.
She and husband Channing Tatum welcomed their daughter back in 2013 and after giving birth, Jenna noticed dark patches forming on her face. Once she visited her dermatologist she found out that those patches were actually very common and are called melasma. They are brought on by sun exposure and hormonal fluctuations.
In her case, they were likely brought on by the enormous shift in hormones that occur while pregnant versus directly after giving birth.
Now, in 2017, the 36-year old is finally feeling like she’s got her skin under control and can be confident wearing little to no makeup.
Jenna took to Instagram to sing the praises of a tool called The Coolaser that has managed to fade the melasma markings and even out her skin tone.
Ok- I don't normally post about this stuff but I have to share because this is amazing! That's the side of my cheek close up so you can see- I have melasma from pregnancy and I swear nothing has worked (and i tried it all!) except this. The Coolaser from @simonourianmd1. The hype is real people. And no I'm not being paid??
The Coolaser was founded by popular plastic surgeon Dr. Simon Ourian, who also treats the likes of Kim Kardashian. One of the great things about this particular procedure is it’s noninvasive and there’s very minimal downtime.
“It works by cooling the skin with super-cooled air, then a rapid pulse laser is flashed on the treatment area, essentially evaporating the top layer of the skin and stimulating new cell growth. It’s popular because the cooling process reduces pain (discomfort is typically described as mild) and because a broad spectrum of patients are candidates for it since it is safe for olive and darker complexioned skin,” explains Dr. Ourian.
The treatment does come with a hefty price tag as a session can run you anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000.
It’s also known to be highly effective for a myriad of skin issues such as undereye circles, scars, wrinkles and overall skin texture.
