Melasma is a skin condition that is often associated with female hormones. Usually seen on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip and nose, this patchy brown discoloration of the skin can be very frustrating to get rid of. If you are able to fade the patchy, brown discolored areas caused by melasma, it is important to maintain a good skin care regimen and minimize sun exposure because it can return.

If you have persistent darkening of the face and are interested in treatments or skin care products to reduce or remove discoloration, call Gardner Dermatology & Med Spa and schedule a free consultation with one of the aestheticians, or call to schedule an appointment with the dermatology office.
