Melasma - What it is

Melasma is an unsightly dirty-looking pigmentation found most often on the faces of women after childbirth ("mask of pregnancy"). It looks patchy and can be brownish, greyish, or a combination of these colours. Ultraviolet and visible light exposure, hormonal changes (such as pregnancy and consumption of oral contraceptive pills) and genetics play a role in causing melasma.
