Achieve even skin tone and clarity
Melasma is a very common skin disorder that presents as brown patches on the face, and is associated with female hormones and sun exposure. It is particularly common when pregnant, or when taking an oral contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy.
If you suffer from melasma, dramatic improvements can be made with an intensive skin care regimen. There may be further therapies recommended to enhance your results such as chemical peels and laser treatments.
