What is Melasma?
Melasma is a skin condition in which causes the skin to appear patchy. The condition usually presents itself on the face with patches of more pigmented skin in comparison to your normal skin tone. Radiation from the sun and its UV rays are often the main cause of melasma. Often pregnancy and the influx in hormones can also cause this change is skin pigmentation. The formation of this condition can also serve as a biomarker for other, more serious conditions such as liver disease. This therefore highlights the importance of an in-depth medical consultation before treatment to allow us to access your current state in the most effective way.
