Hyperpigmentation of the skin is a prevalent problem in both men and women. It typically occurs when the body produces excess melanin, darkening certain areas of the skin. This discoloration occurs due to melanin (skin pigment) deposits within the epidermis (uppermost layer of skin). Melanin is the natural pigment found in the body that is responsible for skin, hair, and eye colour.
Hyperpigmentation, which is generally harmless, can be the result of acne scarring, sun damage, inflammation, or other disorders. It can affect people of all skin types and ethnicity, but is more common in people with darker skin types.
Hyperpigmentation can occur anywhere on the body, and can appear either diffusely or locally.
Individuals who suffer from facial hyperpigmentation may become concerned with the aesthetic appearance of the condition and find themselves suffering from depression and anxiety.
