Dermatologist Dr. Mostaque Mahmud's  Response
Welcome to HCM
Melasma is a hyperpigmented skin lesion usually founds on face, has a hormonal influence and sun light is an aggravating factor.
I suggest you to do a WOOD's LAMP study of your face by a dermatologist. This will help both of you to take decision to choose a procedure Such as Chemical peeling and or Laser therapy.
I am not sure about the composition of "meladerm"
You can use Kligman's formula e. g. TRI-MELASIN cream/ Tri-Luma cream for your face..
But you should consult a dermtologist before taking any procedure/ changing drug.
With regards.
