• Description

    Melasma is one of the most common skin conditions that results in brown/tan pigmentation on the forehead, cheeks, chin, upper lip, and nose. Sun exposure, hormonal imbalance, birth control, and pregnancy can contribute to the development of Melasma. Melasma is a chronic condition that requires management with a combination of cosmetic and medication options.

  • Cause

    Melasma is primarily caused by the overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin coloration. Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during pregnancy or with the use of hormonal contraceptives, can trigger or exacerbate melasma. Sun exposure is also a significant contributing factor, as UV radiation stimulates melanocytes to produce more melanin, leading to the darkening of existing patches or the development of new ones.
