Melasma is seen as brown to gray/brown patches on the skin – mainly found on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, the forehead, chin and above the upper lip.
Woman are more likely to have melasma than men, and the hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy increases the chances of experiencing this skin condition – sometimes known as “the Pregnancy Mask”.
Healthy skin has healthy melanocytes with an even distribution of melanin (pigment) in the skin. Pigmented skin and uneven skin tone occurs when melanin production is increased in the epidermis/dermis and is often associated with UV exposure in addition to other risk factors.
