Treatment For Melasma On Face

April 22, 2012

Melasma is strongly linked with old age. It is a skin condition of the elderly; though some younger ones had been discovered to also end up with the skin condition. The immunity of the body decreases with age. This makes the skin more susceptible to the UV ray from the sun. The UV ray is able to penetrate into the skin and cause mutation melanocytes. The mutated melanocytes will not be able to produce enough melanin to cover the skin. The little it is able to produce will only be able to spread over the skin in patches and this leads to what is called melasma.

No link with cancer

This skin condition had rarely been linked with cancer at any time. Though there are unconfirmed possibilities of cancer ensuing from it, but none of the reported cases of melasma had ever led to cancer. You may decide to leave the skin condition untreated and you can be sure that it will not have any negative health effect on you. But melasma can actually make the face look very ugly.  For cosmetics reasons, you may decide to get rid of the skin condition from your face and you can be sure of getting your normal skin color back. There are some very basic home remedies that you can apply to the skin condition when it comes up on your face or any other parts of your body. You can also be sure of complete healing under few days of consistent treatment.

Apple cidar vinegar

This is long standing treatment method for melasma on the face. It had never been known to lead to any negative side effect. It can help you get rid of the skin condition after few days of consistent treatment. It involves the application of the solution directly on the skin condition. Apple cidar vinegar has bleaching effect on the melasma and it will get the skin condition bleached off.  You can get the apple cidar vinegar to buy all over the place. It is never advisable to use only vinegar for this purpose. Vinegar has burning effect on the skin. Using it to treat the skin condition alone will only lead to further damage of the skin. It is in your best interest to mix the vinegar with apple cidar before use.

Topical creams

There are some specially made topical creams that can help in removing the melasma from your face. It is not expensive to come by topical creams. They usually contain bleaching agents. One of the most commonly used bleaching agents is hydroquinone. Hydroquinone in the topical cream should not be too much so that it does not lead to some negative effect on the face or any other part of the body.
