How to treat melasma?

Treating melasma requires patience and a combination of treatments tailored to your skin type.

Sun protective measures, such as avoiding the sun and wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, are essential in reducing the risks of exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Even if most of the day is spent indoors, a brief walk, driving, or sitting next to a window may expose unprotected skin to enough sunlight to trigger melasma. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays with a minimum SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or more.

Various prescription creams with pigment lightening effects can be used alone or in combination to improve melasma:

A topical corticosteroid may be added in certain cases to reduce the irritation caused by some of these agents.
