You may have noticed a marked discoloration in certain parts of your skin. These areas are noticeably darker than the rest of the skin. These spots can appear on any part of the body, but when they appear on the face they tend to be most troublesome. This is a condition known as hyperpigmentation.
What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is not just a condition, but a way to refer to a cluster of conditions that may cause these dark patches of skin to appear on your face or body. Those conditions may include melasma, sun spots, or post-inflammatory issues.
What Are The Causes?
Just as there are numerous conditions that lead to hyperpigmentation, there are numerous causes. Melasma is thought to be hormone-related, while sun spots are a result of excessive sun exposure. As the name would imply, post-inflammatory cases occur after the skin has become inflamed for some reason. It may also have a genetic component.
