What is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces too much of melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin its colour.
Patches of skin become darker than surrounding areas of skin. It can affect people of all skin types, but is very common on skin of colour as they already have high melanin content.
Burns, bruises, acne, rashes, or other trauma to the skin can lead to production more melanin, resulting in dark spots.
Some medications and health conditions could lead to this problem as well. There are three types of hyperpigmentation – age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
- Age spots – Brown, black or tan spots, start appearing on the skin. It can worsen with prolonged sun exposure.
- Melasma – In this case, there will be large patches of dark skin.
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation – There are spots or patches of dark skin that usually occur after an inflammatory skin condition, like eczema or acne.
