What is Melasma?  

Melasma appears as dark symmetrical spots on the face, most often on the forehead, cheeks, and above the lips. The medical condition is caused by excess amounts of melanin, which is responsible for skin pigmentation, collecting in different layers of the skin.

What Causes Melasma?

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.

Do I Have Melasma?

Melasma is fairly simple to diagnose, but nevertheless, you should see a dermatologist or skin expert to make sure you get the correct diagnosis. Melasma appears as a patch of discoloration on the skin, usually brown or tan in color. It mostly occurs on the face, congregating on your forehead, cheeks, around the mouth, and upper lip. While melasma is most common on the face, the skin condition can occur on any part of your body that is exposed to the sun.
