What is pigmentation?

Pigmentation means skin color, which is derived from melanin, a colorful pigment that is produced by keratinocytes. The white colour of the skin is determined by melanin. If the melanocyte cells overproduce or underproduce melanin, it may lead to melasma, vitiligo, and another curve in the levels of pigment. Hyperpigmentation treatment, however, is endeavouring to eliminate an extra amount of melanin, which gives equal skin tone.

Causes of Pigmentation 

Unlocking the mysteries behind skin pigmentation and finding effective treatments depend on identifying its roots. Several factors can contribute to pigmentation issues, including Several factors can contribute to pigmentation issues, including

  1. Sun Exposure: Long-term sun exposure can cause the overproduction of melanin, which leads to sun spotting and age spots. Spots or patches resulting in hyperpigmentation are very common causes of global skin issues.
  2. Hormonal Changes: Melasma becoming a more likely outcome in the presence of hormonal imbalances can be observed in women during pregnancy or on pills like birth control, which contain the hormone estrogen.
  3. Inflammation: Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation treatment eliminates spots that were formed after acne, scars left by injuries or burns, or other conditions with inflammation.
  4. Medications: The drugs that are used in chemotherapy or those antibiotics targeted at eliminating the disease may cause pigmentation changes. Some of the drugs also cause hypopigmentation or depigmentation.
  5. Genetics: Your genes produce melanin, and depending on your level of melanin, you are exposed to different types of skin pigmentation disorders.

Types of Pigmentation 

Disorders of colour in the skin may appear in different pictures, except that each of the types of disorder specifically necessitates an individual approach to treatment. Here’s an expanded look at the most common types of hyperpigmentation: Here’s an expanded look at the most common types of hyperpigmentation:


Melasma is a type of uneven colour, appearing as brownish or greyish streaks, and it is usually located on the face, especially in the middle of the cheek, forehead, or upper lip. It can occur when the body starts to respond to hormonal fluctuations, such as in pregnant women ( known as ” mask of pregnancy” ), those using birth control pills, or individuals undergoing hormone replacement therapy. Melasma usually makes room for more visible spots after sun exposure, again stressing the importance of sun protection by anyone currently experiencing this skin condition.


These small, flat, discoloured pigmentations, known as solar lentigines or age spots, as well as by sunspots, are usually caused by extended sun damage. These are located mostly on the surface area that is directly exposed to sunlight, which includes the face, hands, shoulders, and back sides of the body.  Although usually sunspots are not a dangerous kind of problem, they might become cosmetically bane to some extent for many. Unger Habilitation (protection), the use of sunscreen and garments may prevent their formation.


The freckle spots are round and light brown but most of them tend to be grouped together, fashioning the face, shoulder and arms as obsession spots for them. Majorly genetic in origin, however, may attain a darker tone if exposed to the sun. Sunshine, people with lighter skin tone and more freckles will have. During the summer, the number of freckles will increase. Despite the freckles being usually harmless, the rewards people sprout after treatments to even their skin tone.

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is a type of pigmentation associated with scarring that is typically caused by a wound or trauma, like acne, eczema, or a scrape/cut. These spots developed continuously where the skin injury generated more melanin, defending the skin from ultraviolet rays. PIH may be denoted as red, brown, or black spots, based on the natural skin tone and the level of inflammation. The pigmentation that usually accompanies this type of condition would fade with time but could take from three to eight months for it to resolve. Many of those approaches, for instance, chemical peels and laser therapy, can enhance the process.
