Melasma is one type of pigmentation that can affect the skin of the face.

Melasma is a generalised darkening of the skin, often in a butterfly pattern, across the centre of the face and usually involving the upper lip area.

It can be caused by hormonal influences such as pregnancy or contraceptive pill or deep skin damage due to bad sunburn or aesthetic procedure.
