Melasma is a common skin problem that results in dark blotchy patches on the skin of the face that are often symmetrical. It may also develop on the neck and forearms. It predominantly affects women, often first occurring between the ages of 20 – 40 years old, tends to run in families, and is more common in individuals with tanned skin. Melasma is often caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy, sun exposure, and some medications like contraceptives or hormone treatments.
Here at Jade, we help reduce the appearance of melasma by treating the surface of the skin, where the discolouration occurs. The result is noticeable improvements in the appearance of your skin – and a happy, confident you!
