Melasma is a common skin disorder that can affect anyone but young women with brownish skin tones are at greatest risk. Melasma is often associated with the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. It is especially common in pregnant women, women who are taking birth control pills (oral contraceptives) and women taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during menopause. Sun exposure is also a strong risk factor for melasma.
Melasma is typically treated with creams containing a different combinations of tretinoin, kojic acid, hydroquinone, and other inhibitors of skin pigmentation. Chemical peels or topical steroid creams may also be used. In severe cases, laser treatments can be used to remove the dark pigment.
