Pigmented Lesions

Freckles, Sun Spots, Age Spots and BirthmarksAlmost everyone has a pigmented lesion of some type. These areas of the skin contain especially high concentrations of melanin and are typically caused by an excess of pigment commonly due to sun exposure, aging or congenital factors. Pigmented lesions vary widely in size, shape and depth. Some are no bigger than a fingertip or even a pinhead, while others may be as large as a hand and occur in such conspicuous places as the face, neck or arms. They can be either raised or flat and are usually a cosmetic rather than a medical concern. However, certain moles or "sun spots" can be precancerous; removing these lesions is medically necessary.

What is Melasma?

Melasma is the presence of brown or grayish brown patches, usually on both sides of the face, especially on the cheeks, upper lip, nose, forehead or chin. This is caused by an excessive production of melanin, the pigment that causes skin to tan. Melasma can be mild, moderate or severe depending on how much of your face is affected and how intense the pigmentation appears.

Who gets Melasma and why?

Melasma is a common skin condition that occurs predominantly in women. Men rarely develop melasma. Although anyone can have melasma, it is more common in people with light brown skin. Experts believe the pigmentation is caused by normal hormonal changes that occur when a woman begins taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy or during the second or third trimester of pregnancy. Melasma is sometimes called the "mask of pregnancy" because of its visual appearance during pregnancy. Sun exposure is also a triggering factor.

What treatments are available for Melasma?

Fortunately, you don` t have to live with melasma forever. Your doctor will be able to help you chose the best treatment combination. GALDERMA has recently come up a new prescription treatment that can lighten moderate to severe melasma quickly and effectively.
