Greetings. Yes there are various treatment possible. Firstly we should determine whether your melasma is epidermal ( better prognosis ) or dermal in origin. U can try creams containing hydroquinone 2-4% , then slowly v can step up with chemical peels and Q switched NdYAg laser. Also, sunprotection is a must. Regards
