Melasma is often referred to as the “Pregnancy Mask” since many women get melasma while pregnant or right after giving birth.. Exact cause of melasma is still unknown but risk factors include hormone changes, race and family history. Melasma is most prevalent in the summer months when the sun is the most intense. There are four types of melasma: • Epidermal • Dermal • Mixed • Unnamed type found in darker complexioned individuals.
