Melasma is a skin condition caused by excessive production of melanin, a naturally occurring pigment in the body that gives color to skin, hair, and eyes. If your body overproduces melanin, you may notice darker patches on the areas of skin that are frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, shoulders, and arms. Melasma is most common in women, particularly those with darker skin. Melasma also occurs with greater frequency during pregnancy. If you are bothered by darker patches on your skin, board-certified Las Vegas dermatologist Dr. Candace Thornton Spann can help achieve a more balanced, healthy appearance to your skin.

"I have gone to Couture Medical once a month for almost a year. I have never EVER waited for more than ten minutes to be called back. The waiting room is never packed or busy. The office staff is second to none. They are always friendly, fast, and personable. If I ever call with an issue or question, they handle it quickly and actually answer the phone when you call.I see Dr. Kim and she is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She listens, is extremely intelligent, and actually cares about your results. I absolutely love this place and am so glad I found it."- C.R. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2017

Many skin conditions resemble Melasma, therefore it is recommended that a complete skin analysis be performed to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Spann can evaluate your skin and your medical history to determine the best treatment plan for you. Topical treatments, which lighten the skin in the affected areas, can be successful for some patients. Chemical peels can also even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of melasma.
