In a State of Frustration with Your Skin?
Melasma is a common skin disorder that results in patchy, dark skin discoloration. It often, unfortunately, happens on the face — typically it occurs on a person’s cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin or above the upper lip. It can also occur on parts of the body that get a lot of sun exposure. Sometimes it manifests itself in blotchy, unwieldy and massive abrasions. Other times melasma can be more symmetrical and smaller in scale. It often occurs in women during pregnancy or hormonal changes and is referred to as chloasma, which means “the mask of pregnancy”. At any rate, Dr. Jovanovic can help you get rid of these unsightly blemishes on your skin. If you’re seeking melasma treatment in New York, NY, then we can help you come up with a proactive plan.
