Treating Melasma

Melasma is a common hyperpigmentation of the skin that typically develops on the face, often as a result of pregnancy. The overproduction of melanin causes the skin to produce brownish patches, which can be controlled but not cured. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Glynis Ablon demonstrates how lasers and chemical peels can be used to reduce melasma-related discoloration.
