Melasma in multiple zones is the result of liver damage from birth control, hormone medications or pregnancy after age 30. Each hormone affects a different part of the face; the forehead (Zone 1) is from Progesterone, the cheeks (Zone 2) are from Estrogen and around the mouth (Zone 7) is primarily from Testosterone. Our protocols are designed to assist the liver in repairing the damage which results in the brown pigment normalizing over time.

Melasma starts as redness in the skin from what research calls dermal inflammation. When exposed to significant sunlight the skin protects the red spots with melanin resulting in large brown spots on the face. To resolve this permanently you need to heal the liver damage otherwise it requires a lifetime of using skin lighteners.
