Melasma



Melasma is a common skin problem, found more often in women. It causes brown to gray-brown patches usually on the face, but can be seen on other areas that get a lot of sun exposure like the neck, chest and forearms, as well. As Melasma can have a hormonal influence, it can be harder to treat. There is no cure for Melasma but IPL can be effective in diminishing the appearance of the patches.
