  • What is Melasma?

    Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 8:44pm

    Melasma is a form of facial pigmentation stimulated by hormone disturbances, like pregnancy and birth control pills and UV exposure make it worse. However, the underlying hormone responsible is melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH). This hormone increases the production of melanin, which is responsible for darkening the skin.

    Melasma appears on the face, especially on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead and upper lip. Melasma is a very common patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration, usually seen in women in the reproductive years.
