For Hyperpigmentation (Brown Discolourations) by skin care laser clinic
Your Question: I have large brown patches and spots on my face that I can’t seem to get rid of, I’ve tried all kinds of lightening products and nothing has really helped. Do you have any suggestions?
The Skin Perfectionists Answer: Melasma, a form of hyperpigmentation (also referred to as chloasma (or pregnancy mask, when present in pregnant women) presents itself primarily as relatively solid in pigment, largish tan or darker facial, skin discolourations that are typically seen on the outer perimeter of the face, especially on the forehead. Melasma can exist anywhere on the face & often develops gradually over time. Even though it can affect anyone, melasma is particularly common in women & is thought to have a hormonal component. Although these Melasma patches do not cause any other physical symptoms beyond skin discolourations, they can cause a lot of emotional trauma & loss of esteem to those experiencing it. Typical lightening creams & sunscreens can assist, but offer very little improvement. Newer high tech, customized solutions are needed to get this condition under visible control so that you don't have to keep camouflaging those dark patches any longer. For radiant results you can see guaranteed.

Sunlight exposure needs to be strictly avoided with the use of broad-spectrum sunscreens, which have physical blockers, such as titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide. These are preferred over chemical blockers, because UV-A, UV-B, and visible light are all able of stimulate melanin or pigment production, even through the windows of your car.
In some instances in order to achieve lasting results, maintenance skin treatments, especially for those with a genetic predisposition or who spend a lot of time in the great outdoors may be necessary.
