Our skin is the outermost protective layer of the body. It is supposed to act as a physical barrier between the blood vessels and internal soft and sensitive tissues and the harsh outer environment, which may prove to be damaging for our internal organs.
Taking care of the skin is about making sure that it remains healthy at all times in our lives and at every age. Various people develop skin darkening and hyperpigmentation at a young age due to insufficient care for the skin.
Some skin conditions like scars, tattoo removals, etc. can nowadays be removed by laser. One can also visit a skin specialist for melasma treatment in Pune, Lucknow, or other cities for guidance with the laser treatment for the skin.

This skin condition is also known as chloasma. People develop dark patches of brown color on the face or other areas on the body. Many women experience this skin disorder during pregnancy due to hormonal fluctuations and imbalance.
In general, this skin condition occurs when the pigment-producing cells in the skin produce too much pigment that causes darkening of the skin in patches. The hormone responsible for controlling the pigment cells of the skin is a melanocyte-stimulating hormone or MSH. Any disbalance in the level of this hormone can cause melasma.
The treatment of melasma can either be very basic like some simple home remedies or can require laser treatment. Aloe vera gel is said to work efficiently on melasma and medical professionals use hydroquinone as the first treatment for melasma.
