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 love this clinic! I have been seen by doctor Grace Kim, and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness and for making me feel welcome at her office. She always makes sure she answers all my questions and concerns and takes the time to explain to me what is going on with my health. I feel I am not just another patient, I feel Ms. Kim cares for me. Her staff is amazing, from her nurses to the ladies at the front desk. This clinic is very clean and the interior design of the lobby/waiting area is fantastic. Thank you, Ms. Kim, I truly appreciate you!"- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2019
"Life Changing Experience - Dr. Marvin Spann is the best plastic surgeon! After 3 children my body was never the same. I struggled with weight loss. I was very unhappy with my body and hated mirrors. After my liposuction my life changed. I am a completely different woman. I am happy and confident. I stand in front of the mirror and admire the woman I see. I feel amazing in anything and everything I wear. The staff at Couture are simply amazing. Dr. Spann is professional and kind. The procedure was explained in detail and I felt comfortable through the entire process. The liposuction results exceeded my expectations. Thank you Dr. Marvin and all the Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Staff!!!!!"- C.C. / RealSelf / Oct 18, 2020

During the Consultation
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.
