Melasma Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

schedule free consultation

At Celibre, we understand that Melasma can be an extremely frustrating condition. That's why when we talk to patients about our treatment programs, we are careful to set the expectation that Melasma is a condition that is managed rather than cured. If you have Melasma (also called the “pregnancy mask") there are good treatment options, but understanding that Melasma is a condition that needs to be diligently managed is important to your success.

Melasma is a stubborn skin condition that can affect anyone. It occurs most often in women - especially those with darker skin types. Melasma is a condition that causes dark pigmented patches on the face, and is normally brought on by hormonal changes resulting from pregnancy or the use of oral birth control (thus the name "pregnancy mask").

Celibre’s Treatment Plan for Melasma

Melasma can best be described as “patches" of dark brown pigment (sometimes refered to as brown spots) or blotches and results from a higher than normal accumulation of melanin (the pigment in our skin). These dark patches occur most commonly on the forehead, cheeks and neck. Although Melasma does not pose a serious health risk, it is worsened by exposure to the sun, heat and humidity.
