Melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark, discoloured brown or gray patches on your skin. The cause of Melasma is complex, but simply, it is an overproduction of melanin (pigment in the skin). Also known as pregnancy mask, it is triggered by an increase in hormones in pregnant women. However, Melasma is not just limited to pregnant women, it is triggered by sun exposure or sun damage, hormone treatments, medication along with a variety of other factors.
Melasma is a condition that cannot be cured, but the good news is it can be managed. It’s a complex condition to treat and requires the medical expertise of a Board-Certified Dermatologist and his team of trained professionals. Heat from light therapies and lasers can make melasma worse, so a customized approach with specific laser settings set by our Board-Certified Dermatologist are effective for controlling melasma.
