What is the prognosis for melasma?
Although melasma tends to be a chronic disorder with periodic ups and downs,
the prognosis for most cases is good. Just as melasma develops slowly, clearance
also tends to be slow. The gradual disappearance of dark spots is based on
establishing the right treatment combination for each individual skin type.
Melasma cases that do not successfully respond to treatment are due to excessive sun exposure.
