I’m sure many individuals dislike having pigment on their faces, and one of the common skin concerns is melasma which can be both physically and emotionally distressing, often affecting one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Melasma can make individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance, prompting them to seek solutions to address the condition. In this article, we are going to discuss the Pico Laser battle against melasma.
What Is Melasma?
Melasma is a common skin condition that is usually more commonly seen in women than men. They are dark spots that appear as light brown, dark brown or blue-gray spots on the skin’s surface. These patches typically appear on the face that are often exposed to sunlight, such as the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip.
How Does Melasma Occur?
Melasma is often related to hormonal fluctuations due to elevated levels of estrogen and progesterone that stimulate melanocytes, known as the pigment that produces an excess of melanin. This overproduction leads to the formation of dark patches or hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Why Do I Have Melasma?
Sun exposure, genetics, and pregnancy could be one of the factors in melasma. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can stimulate the production of melanin, known as pigment responsible for skin color. Individuals with light-brown skin tone are more prone to melasma.
Pregnancy is also one factor that triggers melasma. This occurrence is primarily due to hormonal changes that happen during gestation
