Yes. Beyaz like all other birth control pills can trigger chloasma (melasma).
Chloasma, appears as a blotchy, brownish pigmentation on the face that develops slowly and fades with time. The pigmentation is due to overproduction of melanin by the pigment cells, melanocytes. If you suffer from melasma it is important to wear sunscreen as the sun can make it worse.
If the pigmentation is bothering you talk with your doctor. You may need to try a different form of contraception.
