Melasma, or chloasma or the ‘mask of pregnancy’ as it is also called, are tan or brown spots which discolor the skin. It is most commonly found among woman, especially pregnant women or those taking hormone replacement therapy medications.

Generally the symptoms include dark patches and spots on the cheeks, nose, forehead or upperlip. They may develop and worsen over time.

Genetics, hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, and extrinsic factors such as sun exposure are thought to be the cause of Melasma. Hormones stimulate the production of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in our skin, as they become exposed by the sun. The increased melanin production causes the spotting we see with Melasma.
