Hyperpigmentation is darkened patches found on certain areas of the skin. This is caused by the overproduction of melanin. It can affect any part of the body, including the face, hands, and neck.
There are many types of hyperpigmentation, but the following are the most common:
- Pigment spots, such as age spots, can be caused by sun exposure and therefore mainly appear on areas that are frequently exposed, such as the face, hands and arms. They tend to be small, dark patches of skin.
- Melasma can occur because of hormonal influences, such as pregnancy or birth control pills. It causes dark and irregularly shaped areas on the face or arms.
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can occur following a skin injury or trauma. When the skin heals it leaves a flat area of discolouration behind. It’s commonly found among acne sufferers.
