This common skin condition presents as brown discolouration or shadow-like patches of pigmentation, typically on the face.
The primary symptom of melasma is the development of discoloured patches of skin, appearing most commonly on the forehead, upper lip, temples and cheeks.
Unfortunately, melasma is a chronic condition that can be difficult to treat. There is no permanent cure, but melasma treatments at Skin Science Dermatology, in combination with at-home skincare and sun protection, can effectively reduce and manage its appearance.
A thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, Dermatologist, will be an important first step in developing an effective melasma treatment plan.
Your treatment plan may include topical treatments such as hydroquinone, a depigmenting agent, and medical-grade skincare such as SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense or Metacell B3 to effectively reduce and manage the appearance of melasma.
