The best non-surgical treatment for Melasma Pregnancy Mask & Hyperpigmentation
Melasma pregnancy mask (also known as chloasma), is a form of hyperpigmentation that is common among pregnant women and shows up as dark spots or patches on the forehead, cheeks and upper lip to form an unsightly “mask.”If this has happened to you, you’re not alone. According to The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists up to 70 percent of pregnant women develop pregnancy mask.
While hyperpigmentation like this is a harmless skin condition that won’t hurt you or your baby (thankfully!), it still can be embarrassing. And it can last for years or even for a lifetime!
If pregnancy mask is getting in the way of you enjoying your pregnancy, or if you’ve had your baby but haven’t gotten your natural glow back yet, we can help!
What is melasma pregnancy mask?
Melasma pregnancy mask is a form of hyperpigmentation that occurs when the body produces excess pigment in the skin, resulting in dark spots or patches of discolored skin. It affects all skin types and tones, especially here in Las Vegas where sun damage and windy, dry conditions can make it even worse. During pregnancy, excess melanin production as estrogen rises also contributes to these dark spots forming on facial skin.
Melasma pregnancy mask, skin hyperpigmentation, and skin discoloration are very common beauty concerns for many of our clients here at Francesca’s Facelift in Las Vegas. There are a few things you can do at home to tone down the effects such as staying out of the sun and always applying a high-protection sunscreen when you do go out.
