The Mask of Pregnancy

If you’rPregnant Silhouettee an expectant mother, the changes to your body can be overwhelming. In addition to weight gain, fatigue and mood swings, the surge in hormones can trigger a skin condition called melasma.

Often called “the mask of pregnancy,” melasma usually appears on the forehead, nose, cheeks and upper lip. It sometimes shows up on the forearms and neck, especially if those areas have been exposed to the sun. This seemingly minor cosmetic condition can be highly stressful.

Characterized by brown or grayish-brown marks on the face, melasma is not dangerous.  It is also worth noting that while pregnant women are far and away the most likely to be afflicted with melasma, both men and women are susceptible.

Though it usually fades away on its own over time, some people are afflicted with melasma for years and need to seek the help of a dermatologist to treat it. Topical medications such as Hydroquinone, azelaic acid or kojic acid are sometimes prescribed. Others opt for procedures including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermabrasion.
