Hi,

Melasma or hyper-pigmentation typically occurs on the face, particularly the forehead, cheeks or above the upper lip. See your doctor if you develop any unexplained discoloration of the skin. Although melasma does not require treatment, a doctor can distinguish melasma from other skin disorders that may need to be treated.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sam Salahia, Dermatologist
