    Before & After


    • Melasma is a common skin problem causing dark, discolored patches on cheeks, forehead, bridge of nose, chin, neck, shoulders and forearms.
    • Other areas of the body that are often exposed to sun may develop melasma.
    •  The pigmentation in melasma is deeper and denser than regular sunspots.

    Melasma occurs due to the malfunction of Melanocytes (the color-making cells). Potential triggers of Melasma include:

    • Hormonal sensitivity (Estrogen and Progesterone)
    • Pregnancy
    • Birth control pills
    • Stress
    • Thyroid disease
    • Sun exposure
    • Genetics

    For some women, melasma disappears on its own, this typically occurs when it is caused by Pregnancy.
