One medication/ treatment cannot be singled out as the best for cases of hyperpigmentation and melasma, because each patient has a different case of pigmentation.
In many cases, applications of topical corticosteroids work. For others, it is a combination of creams.
In case procedures are required, they may take sessions. Sometimes doctors recommend a combination of both. In most cases, chemical peeling however has been the most effective one for hyperpigmentation and melasma.
But, the final word is only from the dermatologist for the treatment or medication.

Melanin is a skin pigment that gives color to the skin. It protects us from UV radiation. However, excessive sunlight exposure leads to increased melanin production.
This excessive melanin production that is at an increased rate is called hyperpigmentation. In certain cases, hyperpigmentation is triggered due to
- Sun exposure
Freckles, age spots, uneven skin tone, and other such uneven skin tone conditions are possible cases of hyperpigmentation. People with hyperpigmentation in Dubai and other hot weathered countries are encouraged to start treatments at early stages to avoid more skin trouble.
Melasma is a pigmentation condition developed due to hormonal changes caused by pregnancy or birth control pills, hormone replacement, or thyroid trouble.
It is a condition most commonly found on the face and is also known as the “mask of pregnancy.”
These brown patches need medical treatment to restore even skin color.
