What Causes Melasma & How Is It Treated?

Melasma is a common skin condition that results in patchy brown, tan, or gray-ish skin discoloration. It is mostly found on the forehead, nose, neck, upper lip and other places that experience a lot of sun exposure. Although anyone can get melasma, women between the ages of 20 and 50 are more likely to experience this skin condition as it is often linked to hormonal fluctuations, sun exposure and pregnancy. Women of Latin, Asian and Middle Eastern descent are more susceptible to melasma than other ethnicities.

Preventing Melasma

At Laser Aesthetic, we specialize in professional and proven skin treatments for individuals with melasma and other skin conditions. For those looking to prevent melasma from developing or worsening, we always recommend using sun protection in the form of hats as well as sunscreen and sun avoidance whenever possible.
