Pigmentation and Melasma

pigmentation and melasma treatment at the skin clinic


Melasma is caused by the over production of pigment producing melanocytes. It is thought melasma occurs in those who have a genetic predisposition as well as being triggered by sun exposure, hormonal changes, pregnancy and certain medications. 

It is a frequent chronic skin condition causing dark discolouration over large skin surfaces. This increased skin pigmentation can cause concern and discontent in both men and women as it disrupts even skin tone and complexion.

It has a characteristic distribution over the cheeks, forehead and upper lip although it can affect other areas of the body.
