What is Melasma?
Melasma causes irregular tan, brown, or even blue/black patches on parts of the face including cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, jawline, and upper lip. It is most often symmetrical (matching on both sides of the face).
What Causes Melasma?
The cause of melasma is not fully understood. However, genetics, hormonal changes, and sun exposure are known to play important roles. For example, melasma often occurs with pregnancy, hence the term “mask of pregnancy.” Oral contraceptives can also trigger melasma.
How Is Melasma Treated?
There are several approaches to the improvement of melasma. Including our #1 treatment for Melasma, the Skin Lightening Peel.
We offer treatments for melasma and irregular pigmentation of the skin, including age spots, sun spots and Rosacea.
