Melasma is a condition most often in women that presents with darker patches of skin on the face. Hormones, pregnancy, sun, and heat are all contributory. Prescription strength hydroquinone and a sunscreen with Zinc or Titanium are the foundation of treatment. In addition to recommending the right sunscreen and hydroquinone product, Dr. Miller and staff can provide chemical peels to promote correction of your skin tone.
