Melasma is a very common skin condition. It causes dark irregular patches on skin, otherwise known as hyperpigmentation.
Most people, at some point of their lives, come across this patchy brown discolouration and while it’s not a dangerous condition, it’s certainly an unpleasant one.
Causes of Melasma
Hormone fluctuations that come with pregnancy are often a cause of Melasma. Known as ‘The mask of pregnancy’, melasma is caused when a woman’s hormones change throughout pregnancy.

Lack of Sun protection
Ultraviolet radiation is prone to penetrate the skin cells on the face and cause a mutation leading to darkening of the skin cells. It is always useful to wear adequate clothing and we also remind you that the use of sun protection is crucial for healthy looking skin.
How does the peel work?
The peel uses kojic acid to induce a quick depigmentation action.
The Kojic acid works by inhibiting melanin in the skin. It physically peels the skin layers and regenerates the skin.
It significantly reduces the abnormal, dark, blotchy, discoloured patches on the skin.
