Winning The Fight Against Melasma

A comprehensive guide for therapists

A common skin condition seen in the treatment room is a pigmentation disorder known as melasma. Occurring often in women and in about 10% of men, melasma is characterized as dark-colored patches on the face that commonly appear in areas highly exposed to the sun.

For women struggling with melasma, the cause is typically hormone-related and/or a direct result of pregnancy. However, many internal and external factors can contribute to this condition, such as inflammation, heat, sun exposure, autoimmune disease, and certain medications, particularly oral contraceptives, which increase estrogen and progesterone levels in the body and can trigger a melanin response.

ACHIEVING THE BEST OUTCOME

Due to intrinsic factors, tackling melasma requires a thorough approach that focuses not only on professional treatments and products but also on addressing the underlying cause, the client’s lifestyle, and daily habits. Successful treatment of melasma will be based not only on the therapist’s expertise but also on strict client compliance.
