Dark spots / Melasma

About This Project



Although melasma is considered a condition with a primarily aesthetic connotation, it can cause emotional impact and consequently affect family, social and professional life.


Melasma occurs when melanocytes – the cells which produce pigment in the skin (melanin) – produce too much pigment, leading to the development of brownish-colored patches, symmetrical in exposed areas of the skin, especially on the face.


Causes that can enhance its appearance:


  • exposure to ultraviolet rays and visible light
  • hormonal factors, especially pregnancy and the use of oral contraceptives
  • heat
  • severe dryness of the skin
  • some cosmetics
  • inflammation
