Melasma is a common acquired disorder of hyperpigmentation. A variety of treatment options has been suggested for the management of melasma. A range of different lasers had been tried in the treatment of melasma. Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (QSL) is the most commonly used laser in the treatment of melasma. Recently, laser toning or low-fluence, multi-pass technique has become popular in treatment of melasma. Authors aimed to review the procedure, its effectiveness, combination therapies using laser toning, and complications of laser toning. A PubMed search was made using keywords such as laser toning, QSL, melasma, and lasers in melasma, and relevant articles were reviewed.
