Melasma. I was your typical teenager that ignored my mom's skin saving advice about staying out of the sun, and wouldn't you know she was right! Enter dark discoloration spots on my face. Horrified, I visited my dermatologist and she put me on the Obagi system 8 week treatment. After a few weeks of looking like a burn victim (red and peeling skin), newer and soften skin emerged. I've never felt better about my complexion. The dark spots are gone, and my skin is completely renewed.
