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 could not be more pleased with my results. I would recommend Dr. Spann without hesitation."- Anonymous / Other / Apr 01, 2020
"While it is true that I did not leave the office 40 years younger, any thinner and/or smarter, (I really was not actually expecting any magical transformation), it was great. So when I was seen on time, treated well, given excellent consultation and no one made fun of my big big silly sun hat, I began to think I must be loosing my touch at being an insufferable windbag of a patient. Well at least they are giving me the chance to try again at my next visit. Thanks for that."- W.M. / Google / Feb 26, 2020

She has saved my life literally on several occasions from skin cancer. I adore her and so will you!"- K.M. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020

"I can not say enough about both Dr. Marvin Spann and Dr. Candace Spann. Let's start with Dr. M., I met him 24 hours before my bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction surgery. I don't care for male Dr.'s, will go out of my way not to see them, but when cancers involved, you don't always have a choice. Honestly I'm grateful that he ended up on my side, months of visits, 2 surgeries and I got a beautiful pair of foobs. As far as him blowing off infections, haha I developed one and had more added appointments than I wanted. Now to Dr. C, I originally made an appointment to get my skin checked, and while there she pointed out 3 things, one of which was flared up thanks to one of my medications. I had been suffering for months, my skin and I thank her. Then I went back for Botox and filler, best choice I've made. My husband also sees Dr. C. He had a spot she didn't like, she cut it out and his back looks just fine. I always say there's a reason for everything, so for me cancer added 2 amazing doctors that actually care to my side, and in Vegas that's hard to find."- J.G. / Yelp / Feb 10, 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.
