Melasma Treatment

Melasma is a brown discoloration of the skin, frequently appearing on the face. Hormones are believed to be the trigger of melasma, as it is commonly seen in pregnant women and women who take the birth control pill. Treatment options include fading creams, Fraxel, lasers, and chemical peels. It is important to wear a daily SPF of 30+, as the sun will darken areas of melasma.
