Permanent treatment for MELASMA at Dr. Shetty's Cosmetic Centre.
Melasma is a common complaint faced by many around the world. It is a common skin condition that causes the appearance of brown to gray-brown patches of skin due to the overproduction of brown pigment called melanin, a natural substance that gives color to our hair, skin, and eyes. Melasma usually appears on sun-exposed areas of the skin, like the face, specially on either side of the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose and also upper lip.
Some factors that contribute to melasma are Genetics, harmonal imbalances, pregnancy and UV light exposure.
It is very challenging to treat Melasma . Several treatments like Fractional CO2 Laser, chemical peels, topical medications, Cosmetic camouflage like Makeup With SPF, Skin-bleaching creams,
Sunscreen and Skin Care Products are available, but none work in every patient.

Dr.Shetty is one of the very few doctors across the world who can treat melasma permanently.
