Pigmentation is one of the most common skin issues faced by almost every women and men. Excessive pigmentation is when brown spots and uneven skin tone areas appear on the body. This is a common and usually harmless condition in which areas of skin become darker in colour than normal surrounding skin. The darkening occurs when pigment (melanin) forms excess deposits in the skin. Melanin is the cell which gives human skin, hair and even eyes their colour. Everyone has different levels of melanin in their skin - the more you have, the darker your skin tone. A number of environmental and genetic factors can influence the skin to produce irregular levels of melanin in certain areas. This can lead to slightly darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation) patches of skin.
There are a number of triggers that produce excess pigmentation :
- Skin aging, sun exposure and excessive heat.
- Skin diseases such as acne and keratosis pilaris, may leave dark spots after the condition clears.
- Dark patches following injury to the skin, including some surgeries or invasive treatment.
- Irritation of the skin, for example excessive friction on an area such as the elbows when leaning on a table.
