WHAT IS MELASMA
Melasma, also known as cholasma, is characterized by irregular patches of dark skin on the face. These tan or brown patches usually occur symmetrically on the cheeks, upper lip, nose, or forehead. The symmetry of melasma distinguishes it from other conditions that cause darkening of the skin.
CAUSES OF MELASMA
Melasma can be confusing, because it is not fully understood. Genetics, hormonal changes, and sun exposure are known to play important roles. Melasma often occurs with pregnancy, which is where the term “mask of pregnancy” came from. Basically, anything that wreaks havoc on hormones can trigger melasma (birth control, pregnancy, menopause etc.).
Kristin Gunn BS, CLT, LMA has been able to effectively treat melasma with different modalities. She is known as an authority on treating melasma and pigmentation.
