Hello katrina;
welcome to HeathcareMagic
There is no cream that can remove melasma.Melasma comes at your age and is due to the changes in the body.Melasma is thought to be the stimulation of melanocytes or pigment-producing cells by the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone to produce more melanin pigments when the skin is exposed to sun. Women with a light brown skin type with intense sun exposure are particularly susceptible to developing this condition.Since there is no cream that can be suggested you can consult a Dermatologist and discuss the option of peeling of the skin which should help to a certain extent.Kindly follow up with a Dermatologist.
