Pigmentation often referred to as hyperpigmentation, is coloured spots or patches on the skin caused by increased production of melanin, when skin cells become damaged or unhealthy. Pigmentation occurs in patches on your face and other areas of the body. Even though the condition is harmless it doesn’t look attractive and can distract from your appearance.
External pigmentation can occur due to external damage such as exzema, use of harsh products, very dry skin conditons, acne scars, cuts and scratches, mosquito bites and grazing the knees and legs even as a child. Photo toxic sun damage such as sun spots and freckles can occur due to sun exposure or sun burn. Internal pigmentation can occur due to hormones, birth control pills, pregnancy, nursing, illnesses and medications. Exposure to sun and ageing will only have made this problem worse.
Most skin hyperpigmentation conditions can be corrected or minimised and is usually a temporary condition if treated properly, with the right treatment and product.
