Melasma is a common condition that affects more women than men leading to pigmentation on cheeks, upper lip, jawline, nose, neck and arms. At present, the cause has not been identified. Common triggers include hormone change (pregnancy, hormonal therapy such as birth control), sun exposure, underactive thyroid. Melasma is often recurrence and in some cases, clearance can be difficult to achieve.
