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.

Damage occurs to the collagen and elastin fibers in the reticular dermis over time. Expression lines are caused by a gradual “denting” of these fibers from repeated facial movements. Just like a piece of metal that is bent multiple times, the fibers become weaker and weaker and thinner in the area of the constant bend.
