Melasma is a common skin pigmentation condition that appears as brown to gray patches typically on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. It occurs predominantly in females with only 10% of males having this condition. Melasma, also known as chloasma, is common in females after pregnancy giving rise to the term “mask of pregnancy". The causes are multifactorial and include sun damage, hormonal factors, inflammatory (increased mast cell activity), increased vascularity and disruption of the basement membrane and skin barrier function.
Firstly, I would like to emphasise that in patients with recurrent acne it is important to take a detailed history of the problem. I have come across cases whereby the patient had only self medicated with OTC products which did not improve their recurrent acne. In such cases a more conservative approach using topical agents like adapalene, retin A, benzyl peroxide and clindamycin can be considered first. In those cases who have experienced treatment failures with topicals, oral medications in the form of isotretinion and antibiotics like doxycycline and minocycline can be considered.
I just did my fillers a week ago and i didn't see any improvement in my eyes. The area under my eyes became darker and more fine lines appeared. May I know what might have caused this?
There are no photos provided so I will be just making an assumption. I presume the fillers were injected in your undereye area to improve your tear trough. The possible reason for this is what is called the Tyndall effect. This is due to hyaluronic acid fillers being injected too superficially into the skin and or in too large quantities. This results in a bluish discolouration due to the light reflecting off the filler particles with increased scattering of the light. Thus, the area treated looks darker due to the discolouration. Hope this helps!
