Melasma may also appear on other areas of the body, especially those exposed to a lot of sunlight. These areas may include:

  • the forearms
  • the neck

Causes of Melasma

Melasma is a condition that doctors do not completely fully understand. It might be caused by a malfunction of the skin’s melanocytes (color-producing cells), leading them to generate too much color.

As a result, persons with darker skin tones are more prone to develop melasma than those with lighter skin tones because they have more melanocytes.

As a result, people with darker skin tones are more likely to develop melasma, as they have more melanocytes than people with lighter skin.

Potential triggers for melasma include:

  • changes in hormones during pregnancy (chloasma), hormone treatment, or while taking birth control pills
  • sun exposure
  • certain skin care products, if they irritate a person’s skin

Treatment For Melasma

Melasma does not always require treatment.

Melasma will disappear after delivery or after a person quits taking birth control pills if hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy or when using birth control pills, cause it.

Melasma can continue for years or perhaps the remainder of a person’s life in some cases. If the patches of melasma do not disappear over time, a person might seek therapy to help eliminate or fade them.

However, not all treatments work for everyone, and melasma may come back even after successful treatment.

  • Hydroquinone
  • Corticosteroids and tretinoin
  • Combined creams
