Melasma, a common concern among South African women with darker skin tones, requires specialised care due to its dynamic nature and hormonal influences. Our comprehensive approach to melasma management combines in-clinic treatments with targeted topicals and supplements to address internal triggers and maintain long-term results.
Understanding the underlying causes of Hormonal Pigmentation/Melasma in dark skin types is crucial for effective treatment and management. UVA rays, known to stimulate melanin production, can penetrate car window glass, exacerbating pigmentation concerns. Changes in hormonal levels, particularly elevated estrogen levels from factors like birth control pills or pregnancy, are linked to triggering and worsening melasma. Even after discontinuing contraceptives, pigmentation may persist for years.
Post-pregnancy, melasma typically resolves within months but can persist indefinitely. Additionally, activities causing intense heat to the face, such as steam showers or sun exposure, trigger inflammation, further stimulating melanin production.
While more prevalent in individuals with darker complexions due to heightened sun exposure in South Africa, melasma can affect individuals of any race. Although commonly observed in young women, men can also experience melasma.
Skin Renewal addresses these underlying factors with targeted treatments to manage Hormonal Pigmentation/Melasma in dark skin types effectively.
