Demystifying Hyperpigmentation:
Hyperpigmentation is a phenomenon where certain areas of the skin appear darker or discolored compared to the surrounding skin tone. It occurs when excess melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, is produced in specific areas. The signs of hyperpigmentation can vary, but common manifestations include dark spots, age spots, melasma patches, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These patches or spots can appear on the face, hands, arms, or other areas exposed to the sun. Hyperpigmentation may be caused by factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, acne, and skin injuries. Understanding the signs is the first step in addressing this skin concern and working towards achieving a more even, radiant complexion.
