The 3 Main Types of Melasma You Should Avoid
Have you ever been able to distinguish between the different types of melasma? Understanding the different types of melasma is the starting point for getting the right treatment.
Of course, melasma is a common pigmentation disorder that is characterized by dark or discolored patches scattered around the skin. Amongst pregnant women, it can be referred to as the mask of pregnancy.
There isn’t a clear understanding of what exactly causes melasma. But, some scientists believe that melasma is developed due to the overproduction of the cells responsible for our skin color. The good thing is, melasma is completely harmless and can disappear after a few months. The only issue is, it may lower your confidence or make you more conscious.
That being said, our major aim in this article is to enlighten you on the three (3) types of melasma, their causes, symptoms, and how to avoid them. Please do not ever neglect these key points.
1. Epidermal Melasma
Epidermal melasma is a type of melasma that is dark brown. It has well-defined borders and appears quite obvious when placed under blue light.
However, epidermal melasma is the mildest of all and can respond very well to treatment. One factor that can cause elevated melanin pigment levels within the layers of the epidermis
2. Dermal Melasma
This type is popularly known for its light brownish or bluish patches with less-outlined borders. Unlike epidermal melasma, it doesn’t respond to treatment very well and its appearance remains unchanged under blacklight. Generally, it can be caused by elevated melanin levels within the dermis layer of the skin.
General Symptoms of Melasma
Melasma causes patches that are usually darker than the normal skin color. Most times, they appear around the face with corresponding marks on opposite sides of the face. So, it’s safe to say they are symmetrical.
Other body areas where melasma can occur include the cheek, forehead, tip of the nose, and chin. In rare cases, one may experience melasma around the neck and forearms.
