Have you discovered any unusual of dark spots on your skin that weren’t there before? If yes, then you might have Melasma. Most people tend to ignore these spots. However, if left untreated, these dark spots can worsen over time.
What exactly is Melasma?
Melasma is a skin problem that causes the formation of map-like dark spots on the skin. Its physical appearance is a bit similar to what we Filipinos refer to as pekas. However, it should be noted that it is different from the hereditary freckles. Melasma are group of dark spots with irregular shapes, while freckles are circular in appearance.
- Discoloration patches or dark spots on the skin, patches much darker when compared to your typical skin color are caused by Melasma.
- These dark spots usually appear on your face because this area of the skin is more exposed to sunlight compared to the other parts of the body.
- They look symmetrical and as a result, there can be matching dark spots on both sides of the face.
- The areas where the dark spots are the most sun-exposed areas of your body. These are commonly the: chin, bridge of the nose, forehead and cheeks, forearms and neck.
This condition is caused by overproduction of melanin in the skin (hyperpigmentation) which is triggered most commonly by over sun exposure. As the root cause is skin-deep, it is important to consider treatments that can care for your skin, both and inside and out. Other causes of Melasma include chemicals in cosmetics, pregnancy, etc.
If you are still unsure if you have Melasma, it is best to consult your dermatologist. Your dermatologist will not only be able to give you a proper diagnosis but also the proper treatments such as over-the-counter oral medications that can treat dark spots from within.
