What is Melasma, Causes & Treatment
Melanocyte cells make melanin which is the natural pigment in our skin. As you can imagine, the melanocyte is the protagonist in our story of dispigmentation or the discoloration which is a melasma. The melanocytes are making little packets of melanin which are being absorbed into the epithelial cells as they march towards the surface. By the time they get to the surface they will have within them the proper compliment of melanin as determined by your genetic programming.
