Skin pigmentation and hyperpigmentation are two conditions that affect many people, but they can be treated. Hyperpigmentation is caused by the over production of melanin, which is a chemical that gives skin it's pigment or colour. Skin pigmentation can be caused by aging, inflammation, injury, or due to genetics. Skin pigmentation is the darkening or lightening of skin colour, due to a concentration in the skin of melanin (a brownish pigment) caused by either genetics or sun exposure. The main cause of this discoloration is melanocytes producing more or less melanin than normal. Melanin plays a crucial role in protecting the skin against UV radiation from the sun, and too much can lead to freckling and an increased risk of malignant melanoma.
These two conditions can occur as a single condition or in combination. There are different treatments for skin pigmentation and hyperpigmentation depending on whether it has been caused by sun exposure, inflammation, injury, or genetics.
Pigmentation can be seen on the face, neck and other parts of the body as well. The treatment for this condition can vary from patient to patient and even dermatologist might prescribe different treatments to patients based on their skin type and requirements.
The first step is to identify which type of skin condition you have. A dermatologist will be able to help you figure out the type of pigmentation you have, which will then help in moving to the steps of treatment.
