Hi Hestia, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response.
Your best approach would be to consult a dermatologist or an aesthetic medical practitioner with a special interest in pigmentation. I may be able to refer you to someone I know but please let me know in which city you live so that I can send you to the closest doctor.
Typically Melasma presents with the following:
Large areas of pigmentation
Well defined border
Predominantly on cheeks and upper lip
Related to hormonal changes such as the contraceptive pill/injectable or pregnancy
