List of Services.


Melasma (also known as ‘pregnancy mask’ or Chloasma) is a symmetrical hypermelanosis (pigmentation) of the face that effects up to 30% of women. It is influenced by genetics, sun exposure and female hormones; and is a condition that can be complex to understand and successfully treat. 

Melasma is a chronic skin condition characterized by abnormal production of melanin pigment, leading to visible dark “patches” on the skin. Typically these dark brown patches are seen on the cheeks, upper lip and forehead. Melasma appears to be associated with sun exposure, hormone changes (pregnancy) and genetic predisposition (hereditary factors).
