so is it ok if i use meladerm?Sunscreen is a must! Hormones can cause Melasma which can happen if you are pregnant or your hormones are going crazy. Go to the doctor pronto. If you do have melasma your options are Hydroquinone and microderm or chemcial peels or Obagi has a great system that will transform your face. The idea is to lighten and even your tone. Sun exposure will always make it worse. I have several clients that have melasma that come see me. Fyi Fotofacials will not work to even out your skin tone, it will cause it to scar darker. There are many women in the world that have this. Good luck if this is what you have and remember to have patience.
