Skin pigmentation or melasma (also known as chloasma or the mask of pregnancy when present in pregnant women) is a tan or dark facial skin discoloration.
Although it can affect anyone, skin pigmentation is particularly common in women, especially pregnant women and those who are taking oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) medications.
Hyperpigmentation is also prevalent in men and women of Native American descent (on the forearms) and in men and women of German/Russian Jewish descent (on the face).
IPL laser is an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation, helping to reduce the pigmentation over a series of treatments so that the skin can return to its normal colour.
