Leading research in pigmentation and skin discoloration has revealed important innovations in the treatment of melasma and abnormal skin pigmentation on the skin. Melasma is a benign pigmentary problem that occurs on the face in women of childbearing age. The pigmentation is often characterized by dark discoloration that occurs in patches along the cheeks, forehead, nose, upper lip, and upper neck. The melasma is often associated with family history, a history of sun exposure, and internal or external hormonal load. Pregnancy and breast lactation can be internal causes of increased hormonal exposure to estrogen and progesterone. Birth control pills, hormone replacement, and even dietary changes can lead an external excess intake of estrogen and progesterone.
The Melarase AM and Melarase PM topical creams can help fight melasma and abnormal skin pigmentation. Melarase is scientifically proven to reduce epidermal and dermal melasma and can be used in combination with Melapads and Melapeels.
