Do facial blemishes go away after pregnancy?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 05/11/2023

Once a woman has given birth, the spots on a woman's face or melasma that may have arisen during pregnancy will progressively fade and may disappear with time and protection from sun exposure.

However, in approximately 30% of cases the spots will remain. If this happens and the woman wishes to eliminate them or at least reduce them, she should consult a dermatologist before starting any treatment, as he or she will be the one to recommend the best treatment for her particular case.

In addition, extreme caution should be exercised during pregnancy and breastfeeding and no treatment should be started during this period without consulting the specialist, as some drugs may not be safe for the baby.
