Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure for melasma
Melasma is a common disorder where there is increased pigmentation of the skin, usually of the sun exposed areas of the face. It is more common in women with darker skin tones, and women who are on birth control pills, taking hormone replacement, or pregnant. It is also seen in certain diseases involving the hormones.
Creams that contain lightening agents (for example hydroquinone, kojic acid, and retinoids) may be helpful in treating melasma, as may chemical peels or laser therapy. However, melasma is very difficult to treat and returns easily, especially after exposuer to sunlight.
No permanent cure for Melasma
There is no permanent cure for melasma. Melasma can be triggered by hormones and sun exposure makes it worse. There are many treatments that can improve the pigment changes caused by melasma but if sun exposure persists without sun block, the pigment returns.
