Melasma & Freckles

Spots (Melasma) is cause by an increase in the number of pigments in the skin when it is exposed to sunlight. Melasma is more commonly found in middle age women. It is caused by several factors including  sunlight, hormones (pregnancy hormones, contraceptive pills, or hormone replacement therapy), and oral drugs that cause sensitivity to light (anticonvulsant medication, cosmetic allergies, genetics and stress). These factors can stimulate the skin causing well defined brown spots. These usually occurs on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, forehead, nose, above the eyebrows, neck, arms, or an area exposed to the sun. Spots occurs slowly and often on both sides of the face. Melasma can be categorized into three types: shallow, deep, or the combination of the two.

Freckles are usually flat brown spots with a size of 1-5mm occurring on the face and skin that is exposed to the sun caused by excessive production of melanin. It is commonly found in children and adolescents with a pale complexion. Freckles are genetic and becomes more pronounced with exposure to sunlight, they also fade with less exposure.

Treatment of melasma and freckles.
Melasma are not easily cured and often reoccur. Treatment depends on the cause and the specific type of one has. In cases that are caused by contraceptive or anticonvulsant drugs, the effects can abate slowly when the drugs treatments cease. The same applies for cases that occur because of pregnancy. In some cases the spots simply fades, but do not disappear because of other factors. Deep types are generally harder to cure than shallow types.

Currently there are several ways to eliminate melasma and freckles. Such as limiting the causes and stimulating factors, avoiding excess exposure to sunlight ( such as during the hours of 10am to 2pm ), exposure to extreme heat. It is recommended that you use sunscreen with an SPF > 30 and protects both UVA and UVB rays. This eliminates the over production of pigments caused by exposure to sunlight. Which is a key factor in curing and reducing the chances of a reoccurrence of the problem.
