Melasma, also known as chloasma, is a distinct type of hyperpigmentation and skin condition, which is marked by dark, discoloured patches of pigmentation on the skin.
Often referred to as “The Mask of Pregnancy.”
What are the causes?
Typically, melasma occurs on the cheeks, over the bridge of the nose, on the forehead, chin and above the upper lip.
Often referred to as “The Mask of Pregnancy,” melasma is a chronic skin condition that is commonly triggered for women during pregnancy as it is largely hormonally induced. However, women on hormonal contraceptives, women that have never been pregnant, and men may all experience melasma.
Since heat and inflammation can worsen melasma, only specialized laser treatments may be used to treat this type of hyperpigmentation safely.
