Chloasma, also known as Melasma is a hyperpigmentation very difficult to correct and needs special treatment.
This skin change appears mainly around the upper lip. It first appears during the period when the woman starts taking the pill or has an IUD. However, it can also appear after pregnancy or hormonal disruption.
Skin has cells responsible for melanin production, called melanocytes, and that according to skin photo-type, clear or darker, produces more or less melanin.
What happens is that due to hormonal changes or by any other reasons yet unknown, these cells may produce this pigment in non-orderly and unbalanced way even without sun stimulation.
