Tranexamic acid (TXA) is a novel treatment for melasma that has a multimodal mechanism of action. To provide a comprehensive review of the literature regarding the evidence on the mode of action, safety profile, and efficacy of TXA in the treatment of melasma. The literature was searched for publications on TXA in the treatment of melasma using MEDLINE, Scopus, and Google Scholar. The abstracts of the articles were screened and reviewed for relevance. The selected articles were read in detail for inclusion and also the relevant references were traced. This review is an attempt to evaluate the role of TA by various routes in melasma and offer suggestions for future directions of research.
