All about Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation refers to abnormal darkening of the skin due to increased production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. The problem can appear in small patches or involve larger areas of the skin. These darkened areas can be challenging to conceal with regular cosmetics. What causes this condition and what can you do about it?

What Causes Excessive Pigmentation of the Skin?

Most frequently areas of abnormal pigmentation are due to sun damage or injury to the skin. Darkly pigmented areas called solar lentigines or age spots are very common on the hands and face. They are caused by damage due to sun exposure. Some medical conditions can contribute as can certain medications. Exposure to toxins or chemicals can also play a role. The hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and oral contraceptives can also cause temporary, patchy pigmentation of the skin. It is also very common for people with acne to experience persistent red or purple marks on the skin after acne lesions heal. This is more prevalent among people who pick at their blemishes.
