Melasma may present as dark grey or brown patches typically on someone’s face. This condition is triggered by heat, humidity and hormones and is often associated with pregnancy due to its prevalence among pregnant women. However, it can occur in any gender at any stage of life.
When certain cells become hyperactive and start producing too much pigment (melanin), they create discolored blemishes on the forehead, cheeks and upper lip. This is similar to the mechanism that causes freckles and age spots, although melasma spots are typically much larger.
Melasma is just one form of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation occurs when certain areas of the skin develop more melanin, or pigment than others. While hyperpigmentation often develops due to melasma or age spots, it can also appear in tandem with other conditions such as acne.

A chemical peel works by removing the top layers of skin to reveal smoother, more even-toned skin beneath.
The Jessner peel is typically a medium depth peel, which means it removes skin cells from the top layer of your skin, the epidermis, and the upper portion of the middle layer, the dermis.
A MicroLaserPeel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve tone/texture and provide a more even appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth.
A HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
