Melasma is a form of hyperpigmentation characterized by dark, irregular patches commonly appearing on the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip. This condition is more prevalent in women and often linked to hormonal changes such as pregnancy or the use of oral contraceptives. Melasma can be exacerbated by sun exposure and is notoriously difficult to manage due to its tendency to recur.

Our treatment approach for melasma includes a combination of topical agents such as hydroquinone, which helps lighten the skin, and retinoids to accelerate cell turnover. We also recommend physical sunscreens to protect the skin from further UV radiation, which can worsen the condition. Advanced treatments like chemical peels and laser therapy may be employed to enhance results, always considering the individual’s skin type and the severity of the pigmentation.

Sun Damage

Chronic sun exposure can lead to various forms of sun damage, including age spots, also known as liver spots or solar lentigines. These spots are typically larger and more defined than freckles and are most common in older adults. Sun damage can manifest as uneven skin tone, rough texture, and in more severe cases, actinic keratosis, which can be a precursor to skin cancer.

To combat sun damage, we emphasize prevention through the use of broad-spectrum sunscreens and sun protection. Treatment options include topical antioxidants like Vitamin C, which can mitigate the damage by neutralizing free radicals and promoting collagen production. For more pronounced sun damage, procedures such as Laser Facials and Pigmentation Removal using long pulse lasers are effective in reducing the appearance of spots and improving skin texture.


Freckles are small, brownish spots typically found on the face and other sun-exposed areas. While they are often hereditary, their appearance can be intensified by sun exposure. Freckles are usually harmless but can be a cosmetic concern for those who prefer a clearer complexion.
