Melasma Treatment

Sofia is a 40 year old woman who has noticed annoying dark patches (melasma) on her cheeks, forehead and temples. Her mother and two aunts have similar spots. She is very frustrated by the pigmentation and finds it embarrassing.

She reports that she has been using more concealer in recent years to hide these dark spots, and would like to have them lightened. She saw a dermatologist in the past who dismissed them as “old age” spots and told her not to worry about them.

Her consult question is “how to get rid of dark spots on face”?

She finds out about My Skin of Color on Facebook and learns that there are safe and effective ways to treat these spots. She has a prescription for FDA approved, triple action melasma cream the next day.

She is so happy to finally have a long term treatment for her dark spots.
