I'm 48 year old South American living near Sydney Australia who until 7 years ago never had a mark on my face. One IPL laser treatment that went terribly wrong, in conjunction with the contraceptive pill and years of self medicating left me with pigmentation on my lip, cheeks and forehead that... READ MORE

I have had chemical peels which led to more hyperpigmentation. Originally these mesoestetic peels were made to reduce some hyperpigmentation, but now it is even worse. It failed. I just think, I got a really bad avice from the cosmetogolist who wanted to earn money. She said it is possible to do... READ MORE

After doing a lots of reading on this site and using natural products, I took my melsama issues to my dermatologist during my annual body check. I was very clear that I did not want a HQ product so she recommended PCA Skin Pigament Gel (HQ free). She said no Retinol because I still struggle with... READ MORE

My skin was a mess. Very blotchy from melasma after having three kids as well as spots from a couple decades of breakouts. I think the last time I went out without foundation was 10 years ago when I went camping. I went to a doctor and he prescribed Triluma. The office visit cost me $45 and I... READ MORE

So, I'm 24 and I live in the Middle East. I'm white, but I tan very easily and I'm on yasmin! I first noticed my melasma when I got back from turkey last August, I had a horrible shadow over my lip and I had white pigmentation on my forehead! Luckily I was living in the Uk at that point so when... READ MORE

Having struggled with Melasma on the balls of my cheeks, forehead, upper lip and nose, I felt cursed. After using Dr. Schlesinger’s Melasma Cream I have NO visible signs of the condition. My skin is clear and even. I developed Melasma in 2009 and have consulted with several plastic surgeons i... READ MORE

How the spot was so little i did not really cared a lot... READ MORE

I have started this high strength cream for dermal melasma on both cheeks and upper lip. So far, nothing has worked for this pigmentation. My dermatologist is of the opinion that high strenth cream should work!! I don't know how hopeful I should be... If anyone had luck with treating dermal... READ MORE

This is a treatment that I did lots of research. I had ok skin all my life but 6 years ago I developed Melasma on cheeks and face due to a lot of very strong sun exposure while overseas in Army. At the time it wasn't too bad so I didn't treat it. in 2012I discovered Obagi system and Retin A. I... READ MORE

I developed melisma in 2013 from what I believe was a combination of oral birth control pills and to much sun from a cruise we took in May. We had a "sea day" on the cruise and I spent the better part of the day on deck swimming in the pool, lounging in the chairs and basically frying my skin... READ MORE

I felt self conscious about my face until I had my Melanage Peel. The Melanage Peel treats melasma (a condition in which brown spots appear on the skin). They were so bad, make up would not cover them. I went to Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Care in Valencia to see Claudia K. the... READ MORE

I developed hyperpigmentation after my 2nd baby. I got it after the 1st baby but Tri Luma fixed it. Then they discontinued it. I started Obagi Nu-derm & it worked but the retin A really started to irritate my skin making it look worse: scaly, un-even skin tone, large pores-HORRIBLE. By far not... READ MORE

I just wanted to share with everyone my amazing results with the obagi system. I felt I had tried many things for melasma and was feeling very discouraged. My dermatologist recommended this and I couldn't be happier. I'm 3.5 weeks through and the results thus far are superb. Unfortunately, it... READ MORE

I had developed a little melasma around my eyes and upper lip during the pregnancy of my third child. It didn't go away. This was my second Mini Melanage peel. I will continue getting this peel once or twice a year for maintenance. The before picture was also before my Dysport for crows feet... READ MORE

After spending tons of money in expensive and useless products and trying many natural treatments. Finally I found this doctor who prescribed me HQRA + 7% and heliocare pills and after less than a month my skin looks amazing.

I am 25 years old, I have never been pregnant, and have not taken birth control or any hormones for over 5 years. About one year ago I developed melasma out of nowhere. After numerous consults and research I had 2 Vi Peels done and they were awful. My face was infected and painful (see photos... READ MORE

I'm a 35 year old Korean woman who's had problems with pigmentation my whole life- though in the past few years, my dark spots have definitely become more pronounced. I consulted with a doctor who confirmed my worst suspicions- that I did in fact have melasma. She said melasma is technically... READ MORE
