What is Melasma?
Melasma is a pigmentation disorder that causes dark, discolored patches on your skin. Women are much more likely than men to develop this condition. The brown or grey-brown patches of melasma appear most often on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin.
Melasma can be due to hormonal changes during pregnancy or from sun exposure. Women with darker complexions and who are pregnant are at greater risk of developing melasma.
