Skin Discoloration
& Melasma

Is your skin discolored with brown spots, patches or patterns?? Do you look like you have a mustache?? Do you have uneven skin tone?
You may have a condition called “Hyperpigmentation” or “Melasma”.

Hyperpigmentation is the overproduction of melanin in the skin secondary to ultraviolet exposure, trauma or inflamation. Does your acne leave behind a dark spot for months after the pimple is healed?? This is your skin reacting to inflamation. Does your skin discoloration worsen with sun exposure? Hyperpigmentation also accompanies sun damage.

Melasma or “pregnancy mask” is a deeper production of melanin usually due to hormones. Often, having a baby can leave your skin with a pattern of brown patches over your upper lip and cheeks. This melasma gets worse in the sun and seems to have darker and lighter periods.

Hyperpigmentation and Melasma CAN be treated!! Although there is no cure, the very products & treatments that help to block the path to brown spots can also help with anti-aging by improving skin texture, fine lines, and helping to prevent pre-cancerous skin lesions!!
