What is Melasma?
Melasma is a dark skin discoloration found on sun-exposed areas of the face. It is a very common skin disorder. Though it can affect anyone, young women with brownish skin tones are at greatest risk. Melasma is often associated with the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. It is especially common in pregnant women, women who are taking oral contraceptives, and women taking hormone replacement therapy.
Melasma is treated in the Kovak Laser and Dermatology Institute offices by undergoing microdermabrasions, Intense Pulsed Light lasers, utilization of a Mandelic Acid skin product, laser peels and specific skin care products.
