Melasma is a common skin disorder which appears as a dark skin discoloration on areas of the skin that have the most exposure to the sun. Melasma is often associated with hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. It is prominent in pregnant women, women who are taking birth control pills and women taking hormone replacement therapy during menopause. Treatment of melasma includes staying out of the sun and using SPF when one does go into the sun, topical creams and laser treatments. The skin care experts at ReNu are educated on the most up to date ways to scientifically correct melisma both by laser procedures and skin care products, once the condition has been diagnosed.
