Melasma, or “mask of pregnancy,” affects about 10% of women worldwide, and not just pregnant women. It appears in the form of a brown spot, spread symmetrically, often in the center of the face.
50% of women who develop melasma have a family history. The two other major causes of its appearance are a hormonal upheaval and exposure to the sun.
Like other brown spots, melasma is due to the accumulation of a pigment: melanin. The increase in the quantity of estrogen and UV rays disrupt the melanin factories (melanocytes) and cause a lasting overproduction of melanin which then accumulates in skin cells (keratinocytes).
To fade this extensive brown spot, you must act at all stages of melanin production: before for prevention, during and after for correction. This is what the Novexpert treatments selected here offer.
