Melasma: Discoloration of the Skin
Melasma is a discoloration of the face. Sometimes it is referred to as “pregnancy mask” although it may not be related to pregnancy at all. It is characterized by splotches of brown pigmentation on the face that is typically symmetrical in nature, for example a spot on the left side will likely be on the right side.
Melasma is hormonal in nature, whether it be related to natural fluctuations, birth control, pregnancy or thyroid. Due to this, there is no cure but there are ways to manage it.
How we treat it
Chemical peels are keratolytic agents, meaning they cause skin to peel on the surface. This will not remove melasma, but exfoliating the surface of the skin and help to reduce the appearance of the hyperpigmentation.
