Get rid of unwanted dark patches and pigmentation from your face with melasma treatment in Chandigarh offered by an expert and top skin doctor at Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics.
Melasma is a familiar aesthetic skin concern, a type of hyperpigmentation, primarily characterised as facial pigmentation disorder. It manifests as tan, brown, greyish brown, or bluish-grey symmetric macules with irregular borders or hyperpigmented patches on an individual’s skin. Usually, it develops on areas like the chin, forehead, cheeks, nose, and above the upper lip. For some people, melasma may affect the skin of their jawline, neck, arms, or other body sites. The varying dark coloration on the skin in the form of spots or patches is because of the unique skin tone of an individual.
Melasma is more likely to develop in women aged between 20-40 years, possibly due to hormonal fluctuations. The risk of developing melasma is greater if one has a family history of melasma or/and has a medium or dark skin tone. Melasma is not a painful or itchy skin condition. Having melasma can make an individual self-conscious of his/her appearance.

There is no specific cause for melasma. Still, more research is required to figure out the cause of melasma. Some researchers have discovered that in melasma patients, the melanocytes are more active. Melanocytes are the specialised cells known to produce melanin- a coloured pigment. Melanin is what gives one its unique skin, hair, and eye colour. Overactive melanocytes mean more melanin production. Excess melanin deposits in the skin of specific areas cause the skin to darken in contrast to surrounding normal skin. This darkening of the skin in spots or patches is known as hyperpigmentation. Thus, melasma is one of the kinds of hyperpigmentation.
Even after the discovery of overactive melanocytes in melasma patients, the reason behind this happening remains still unclear. The researchers have also seen that melasma is a response to some triggers. Something triggers the melanocytes in the skin to go into overdrive. Here are some of the possible triggers of melasma:
Melasma can fade away on its own like after childbirth or after stopping taking certain medications. For some, melasma can last for several years, maybe for a lifetime. Although melasma does not harm the body, some people want to treat it to improve their appearance.

People with melasma can achieve a more even skin tone by following these skin doctor’s - recommended tips:
Is Melasma Curable?
Yes, but the process is very slow. Melasma is a challenging skin condition in terms of its treatment. That’s because there is no definite cause of melasma. There is no single treatment known to remove the skin pigment. The cure is hardly possible if the pigmentation of the skin is very deep. Also, sometimes there is a chance of recurrence of melasma.
Can Melasma Resolve on Its Own?
Yes, there is a possibility of melasma spots/patches resolving on their own within a few months of their appearance. But, this is not much likely to happen if the affected individual is pregnant or taking oral contraceptives. There are also chances of melasma returning. To avoid worsening the melasma condition or re-occurrence of melasma in areas where it's fading away, skin specialists can suggest some preventive steps.
