Facial Pigmentation Treatment
Melasma appears as dark symmetrical spots on the face, most often on the forehead, cheeks and mustache area. Excess amounts of melanin (skin pigmentation) collects in different layers in the skin.
Melasma is a common skin disorder that can affect anyone, but young women with brownish skin tones are at greatest risk. Melasma is often associated with the female hormones estrogen and progesterone and is especially common in pregnant women, women who are taking birth control pills (oral contraceptives), and women taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during menopause. Sun exposure is also a strong risk factor for melasma.
