Hyperpigmentation refers to skin spots that become darker than the surrounding skin area. Age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are all examples of hyperpigmentation.
Each variety has unique cause and treatment options, including topical creams and cosmetic surgeries. It is critical to understand that hyperpigmentation happens when the skin produces more melanin.
Skin patches or spots can appear darker than surrounding areas due to this cause. A frequent skin problem is hyperpigmentation. It affects all skin tones majorly.
One of the primary causes of Hyperpigmentation is excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. When the skin is exposed to UV rays, it triggers the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for giving color to our skin.
Over time, this can lead to an uneven distribution of melanin, resulting in dark spots or patches. This is commonly known as sunspots or age spots.
Hormonal changes can significantly impact the skin, leading to Hyperpigmentation. Conditions such as Melasma, commonly experienced during pregnancy or due to hormonal therapy, can cause dark patches on the face. Similarly, hormonal fluctuations during puberty or menopause can also contribute to the development of Hyperpigmentation.
Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
PIH occurs as a result of injury or inflammation of the skin. Acne, burns, cuts, or aggressive cosmetic procedures can trigger this. When the skin is damaged, it produces excess melanin in response to the inflammation, resulting in dark spots or patches. People with darker skin tones are more prone to PIH.
While UV exposure, hormonal imbalances, and inflammation are common causes of Hyperpigmentation, genetic factors can also play a role. Some individuals are genetically predisposed to the overproduction of melanin, making them more susceptible to developing Hyperpigmentation.
Treating Hyperpigmentation involves addressing the underlying cause and minimizing the appearance of dark spots. Here are a few treatment options:
