Melasma

What is Melasma?

Melasma is a medical condition where the face becomes discolored leaving brown, blue-grey or tan spots on the face. 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. Our experienced team of dermatologists can diagnose your melasma and create a therapy for you.
