Melasma is a common pigmentary skin condition marked with brown to grey-brown splotches, usually on the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, and upper lip. Factors that can trigger or exacerbate include sun exposure, heat, changes in hormones, and irritating skin care products. For the majority of patients, melasma is stubborn and lasts years to a lifetime.
