Uneven pigmentation, and especially melasma, is a condition that plagues many women.
It is especially common here in Queensland – we see many patients who come from other hot climates around the World, who tell us that it was when they came to Australia that their skin really became problematic.
Melasma is a hormonal pigment that looks often like a coffee stain and particularly affects the forehead, cheeks and top lip.
It is especially common in darker skin types.
Melasma is a difficult condition to treat effectively and especially so in darker skins that are harder to treat with laser and light based therapies.
