What is a Melasma?

Melasma is a skin condition that causes brown patches on the skin. Melasma most commonly presents on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, neck and forearms.

This condition is most often seen on women and is many times triggered by hormonal changes in those who are pregnant or taking oral birth control. Melasma can also be exacerbated by sun exposure.

Melasma Treatment

Treatment includes topical lightening creams, sunblock, sun protective hats and clothing, as well as in office treatments. It’s important to protect your skin when spending time in the sun to prevent melasma from forming and returning. In mild to severe cases, Dr. Kingsley also formulates personalized treatment plans consisting of chemical peels, microneedling and ultrapulse RF microneedling (SylfirmX).
