Melasma Treatment in Newport BeachMELASMA – WHAT EXACTLY IS IT? Melasma is a natural darkening of the skin caused by excessive production of melanin – melanin is the pigment that causes your skin to tan. That’s why the sun, which increases melanin production, usually makes your melasma worse. Melasma only occurs on the areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun. It can be mild, moderate or severe.

Melasma is a common skin condition that occurs predominantly in women. It seems to be more common in people with light brown skin, especially Hispanics and Asians. Sometimes it will just fade away but if it doesn’t, the dark patches can take a long time to lighten.

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with melasma. There are different prescription and over-the-counter products that can be used alone or in combination to treat melasma. Tri-Luma Cream is a triple-combination product that your dermatologist can prescribe to lighten your moderate-to-severe melasma quickly.
