What is Melasma?

Melasma loosely translated means "black spot" and is a common skin disorder. If you experience some light or dark brown, blackish or even blue-grey patches on your skin, you possibly have melasma. Melasma may also be known as chloasma.

Melasma can appear on your skin as freckle-like spots or flat patches. They can surface on your face, cheeks, upper lip, forehead and even on the forearms.

Melasma is sometimes called the "Mask of Pregnancy" because it frequently affects expectant pregnant women. Melasma can darken and lighten over time. It often improves in winter and worsens in the summer months.

Although melasma is harmless, the pigmentation may make some people feel self-conscious and less confident.

How common is Melasma?

Melasma is very common, especially among pregnant women, some 15-50% of women experience this skin disorder during pregnancy. It predominantly occurs during the female reproductive years and usually between 20-40 years old. While women are the majority of the population who get melasma, some 10% of men may also experience it.

What causes Melasma?

Your skin the largest organ of your body and is your body's barrier to the external world protecting your internal organs from the elements and more. The outer layer of the skin is the epidermis, the middle is the dermis, and the deepest layer is the subcutis.

Your epidermis contains cells called melanocytes. These cells store and produce a dark color pigmentation known as melanin. The melanocytes produce more melanin in response to light, heat, UV rays or by stimulation from hormones, and causes your skin to darken.

During pregnancy, women have increased levels of estrogen and progesterone hormones and these hormones are possibly the cause of melasma during pregnancy. The dark skin tone usually fades after pregnancy.

Is Melasma harmful and permanent?

Melasma is a chronic skin disorder which means that it is long-lasting and stays for more than 3 months. Some people may have melasma for a long period of time over many years or their whole lives. On the other hand, some people may only experience it for a short period for example during pregnancy.

Fortunately, melasma is not painful, itchy, or uncomfortable in anyway except that it may be aesthetically concerning for some people. Melasma is harmless and not cancerous. However, it is necessary to check with your dermatologist to confirm that your skin pigmentation is melasma and not other skin conditions which may be cancerous.
