Melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark patches or spots on the face, most often on the cheeks, forehead, chin, and upper lip. It is more common in women than in men, and it is often triggered by sun exposure, pregnancy, or certain medications.
What Causes Melasma?
The exact cause of melasma is unknown, but it is thought to be caused by a combination of factors, including:
Sun exposure: Sun exposure can trigger the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. When too much melanin is produced, it can lead to melasma.
Pregnancy: Hormonal changes during pregnancy can also trigger melasma.
Certain medications: Some medications, such as oral contraceptives and certain hormone replacement therapies, can also trigger melasma.
Skin color: People with darker skin tones are more likely to develop melasma.
Melasma Treatment at Avo Medical Aesthetics
Avo Medical Aesthetics offers a variety of innovative treatments for melasma, if not treated properly you may develop hyperpigmentation.
LaseMD ULTRA is a state-of-the-art laser treatment that uses non-ablative fractionated technology to gently resurface the skin and reduce the appearance of melasma.

Topical medications, such as hydroquinone and azelaic acid, Kojic Acid can be used to lighten the appearance of melasma.

What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Pigmentation is the coloring of our skin. Hyperpigmentation is when sections of our skin may become darker than others, resembling brown spots in appearance. While this skin imperfection is typically harmless to our health, it can make people feel bothered by their appearance. If you are discomforted with how brown spots are affecting your image, consult with our medical staff and see which of our treatment options may be right for you!
What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is caused by the body’s extensive production of melanin, which is the component in our skin that is responsible for its coloring. The most well-known influence of hyperpigmentation is sun exposure. As our body soak up great amounts of UV light, our melanocytes (the cells in charge of skin coloration) are stimulated, creating darker pigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation and brown spots can also be created from pregnancy, as well as be a side effect for certain prescriptions like antibiotics.
