Rosacea & Melasma

Changes in Skin Tones

Whether you are suffering from redness or dark patches, you can get help. Even out your complexion and get your self-esteem back. Reduce the redness caused by rosacea. Minimize the effects of melasma.

ROSACEA

Rosacea is a long term skin condition characterized by facial redness. Rosacea typically begins on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp.

MELASMA

The symptoms of melasma are dark, irregular patches commonly found on the upper cheek, nose, lips, upper lip, and forehead. These patches often develop gradually over time. Melasma does not cause any other symptoms beyond the cosmetic discoloration.

 

Melasma is also common in pre-menopausal women. It is thought to be enhanced by surges in certain hormones which is why pregnant women can develop spots and it is also referred to as "pregnancy mask". Although the signs of melasma are similar to age spots or freckling, this is an entirely different skin condition.
