What Is Melasma?

Melasma is a common skin condition that causes brown or gray patches to appear on the skin, typically on the face. It occurs when the cells that produce melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, become overactive and produce too much melanin in certain areas of the skin. Melasma is more common in women than men, and it can be triggered by various factors, including pregnancy, birth control pills, hormonal imbalances, and exposure to UV rays.

Symptoms of Hyperpigmentation & Melasma:

  • Brown or gray patches on the skin, typically on the face
  • Patches that are darker than the surrounding skin
  • Patches that have irregular shapes or borders
  • Patches that may look like large freckles
  • Patches that may worsen with sun exposure or hormonal changes

Possible Causes of Melasma:

  • Overexposure to sunlight, which triggers the production of melanin in the skin
  • Hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy or menopause
  • Genetics, as some people may be more prone to hyperpigmentation than others
  • Inflammation or injury to the skin, which can cause the skin to produce more melanin

At The Med Spa of New Smyrna Beach, we understand that every patient’s skin is unique and requires a personalized approach to treatment. This is especially true when treating melasma, which can have several causes and may require different treatment options.
