In brief: No

Melasma can be caused by birth control pills, pregnancy or be idiopathic (cause unknown).
It more common in hispanics and asians. Avoidance of sun helps.

In brief: Awesome Sunscreen

If you are insanely good at sun protection, you can usually make your melasma significantly better. You have to be incredibly diligent about daily sunscreen usage though.
