Pigmentation

Concern

Skin pigmentation issues can manifest as dark spots, patches, or uneven skin tone. These can be caused by excessive melanin production (hyperpigmentation) or a lack of melanin (hypopigmentation), resulting in areas of the skin appearing lighter or darker than the surrounding skin.

What causes it

Hyperpigmentation can be caused by various factors, including sun exposure, hormonal changes (e.g., pregnancy or birth control pills), inflammation, and skin injuries. Hypopigmentation can be the result of conditions like vitiligo or certain genetic disorders that affect melanin production.
