Melasma (or Chloasma or the mask of pregnancy) appears as brown patches on the face commonly on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, upper lip and chin.

Melasma is caused by hormonal changes, sun and genetic predisposition. Hormone changes include external hormones such as the oral contraceptive pill or internal hormones changes due to pregnancy, polycystic ovaries (PCOS) and the menopause.

It is more common in women aged 20 to 50 years but can also occasionally affect men. Women with olive or darker skin tones have a higher incidence. It is more pronounced in the summer.

Treatment Options for Melasma

  • ZO prescription skin care by Dr Obagi will effectively reduce the appearance of and effectively treat dark spots, brown patches and other signs of pigment changes and sun damage.
  • Skin Peels remove a controlled amount of the skin’s outer layers, including the dead cells on the surface. This promotes regeneration and repair and will result in the skin being smoother, tighter and a correction of skin problems.
