Uneven pigmentation of the skin is a condition that can affect people of all ages. It can have a gradual onset, becoming increasingly noticeable with time. For people with hyperpigmentation, confidence can be reduced as this condition tends to make a person appear older than they really are. It can be treated efficiently with specialist skin creams and treatments.
What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is an umbrella term for a range of conditions that affect the melanin producing cells in skin, causing them to go into overdrive. Melanin is the substance that affects how dark skin is, so an over-production of it in certain areas compared to others will cause a dark spot or area.
This is not to be confused with Hypopigmentation, which is an absence of melanin.
Melasma is an example of hyperpigmentation, which often effects women experiencing fluctuating levels of hormones, or hypersensitivity to normal levels of hormones.
