Melasma

Melasma

Melasma is a disorder of pigmentation that most commonly afflicts women during the reproductive years (90% of all cases) and presents with brown patches on the face. The brown pigmentation most commonly occurs on the cheeks, around the eyes, the bridge of the nose and forehead. The disease has a predilection for darker-skinned individuals, particularly Hispanics, Asians and individuals from the Middle East and northern Africa.
