Melasma and Chloasma For Asian Skin
Melasma and Chloasma are very common skin disorders. Though they can effect anyone, young women with brownish skin tones are at greatest risk.
Melasma is a dark discolouration of the skin that typically appears on sun-exposed areas of the face, but can appear elsewhere on the body too. The condition doesn’t cause any other symptoms besides skin discolouration but may be of great cosmetic concern. The Cottage Surgery regularly treats these conditions and has several therapies to remove or reduce pigment change; these can include the controlled use of Medical Peels, topical application of specialised products or utilising our medical grade lasers.
Chloasma, (sometimes known as the ‘Mask of Pregnancy’) is often associated with the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It is especially common in pregnant women, women who are taking birth control pills (oral contraceptives) and women taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during menopause.
Specialist staff at The Cottage Surgery, have been treating patients with darker skin tones for a variety of conditions. It is this experience that has resulted in a greater level of success than that usually found in typical beauty salons and parlours.
