Melasma

What is Melasma?

Before you ask “how to get rid of age spots”, one should realise, those age spots might actually be another form of hyperpigmentation called Melasma.

Melasma is a common dermatological condition that causes patches of greyish - brown pigmentation on the face. It develops when the melanocytes in the skin overproduce melanin, leading to discoloration on certain parts of the skin. The severity varies significantly, and can lead to embarrassment and psychological distress.
