Thank you for the question and my sincerest apologies for not answering sooner. We normally receive an email notification when a question has been asked but there seems to have been an IT glitch and I never received a message that your question was asked.

Melasma is difficult to treat and your best option would be to see a dermatologist who can discuss the various treatment options.

A topical approach will include sun avoidance and applying a good SPF 30 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. Generally speaking, we do see good results with a combination of topical vitamin C and vitamin A, and one may have to add hydroquinone 2% or 4% to this regime. Unfortunately, hydroquinone may have side effects such as sun sensitivity and even allergic reactions.

One may also consider fractional laser to lighten the Melasma.

Kind regards
