Brown patches on areas of the skin that have been exposed to the sun are symptoms of melasma. Both women in their reproductive years and those with darker skin tend to experience this. (It is sometimes referred to as the "mask of pregnancy" or chloasma when it affects pregnant women.) Men are also impacted. Large, flat, brown patches with freckle-like markings on them are the hallmarks of melasma.

Frequently asked questions
Melasma is not an infection and is therefore not contagious. It is also not due to an allergy.
Hyperpigmentation is a common term used for all types of conditions involving the darkening of a particular region of the skin. It may involve different types of cases which are accompanied by dark spots on the skin such as liver spots, freckles, and Melasma. On the other hand, Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation.
It involves dark spots on a particular skin area such as the chin, cheeks, upper lips, and nose. While the reason for hyperpigmentation is the exposure of the skin to UV rays in the sunlight, the cause for Melasma involves hormonal changes during several conditions such as pregnancy.
Melasma causes patches of discoloration on the skin. The brown or grey-brown patches of melasma appear most often on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin.
It can be treated by laser therapy, chemical peel, microdermabrasion, dermabrasion or a light-based treatment.
Melasma is a common disorder found in many people across the world. People with facial skin covered with brown pigments and patches can consult our dermatologist for its treatment
Treatment of melasma is a slow process. It takes months for the patches to fade away and the discoloration to normalize. If the dark or brown pigments occur only on some areas, the treatment may take around eight or nine months to cure. But if it spreads over a wide region, covering major part of the face, then it takes even greater time and continuous treatment to disappear.
The outcome of the treatment is usually permanent if proper care and precautions be taken. Removal of pigmentation does not guarantee its longevity. The patches may again appear if the skin is exposed to severe sunlight or if there be some hormonal imbalance. To prevent such, use of sunscreens and protective masks during long outdoor stays under the sunlight is essential.
