SKIN PIGMENTATION TREATMENTS
Pigmentation is a skin condition in which overproduction of melanin causes brown or grey patches to develop on the skin, such as sun spots, age spots, and dark spots from melasma.
Pigmentation can affect the face (cheeks, forehead, nose, upperlip, and jawline), hands, forearms, neck and chest.
As melanin pigments in your skin group together to try to protect your skin from the sun, discolored patches and dark spots can form. This is the reason pigmentation becomes more apparent in the summer months. Over time, these pigmented spots are supposed to gradually fade away. In some cases though, they can leave you with an uneven skin tone. Another cause can be melasma. Melasma is a common disorder of unknown cause that causes dark (hyperpigmented) patches, primarily on the face. Your risk of pigmentation increases with:
- Family history of pigmentation
- Sun exposure and sun bed use
- Contraceptive pill
