What is Melasma?
Melasma is a condition, most common in women, characterized by patches of discolored skin that appear on the face. This condition often develops in response to hormonal changes, which can be triggered by a recent pregnancy or the natural aging process. In some cases, the condition can also be triggered or worsened by sun damage. Regardless of the cause, melasma is a chronic condition that cannot be completely cured. Instead, patients must rely on consistent treatment to manage the condition and its symptoms.
How is Melasma Treated?
Since melasma is a chronic condition, it has to be effectively managed for years to maintain a reduction in symptoms. For melasma treatment, we typically recommend topical medications. In order to keep the body from developing a resistance to these medications, we regularly rotate the products used. This ensures that patients can achieve lasting results from treatment.
When Will I Notice Results from Melasma Treatment?
Most patients notice an improvement in their melasma symptoms within a few months of beginning treatment. Since melasma is a chronic condition, patients will have to continue with regular use of their topical medication to maintain their results and prevent symptoms from worsening.
