What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition in which patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. These dark spots are due to an overproduction of melanin by skin cells. Melanin is the pigment that produces your skin, eye, and hair color. There are several triggers that can stimulate the overproduction of melanin. The major culprits are excessive sun, hormonal changes, pregnancy, and genetics. For some people, hyperpigmentation occurs when their skin is healing; we refer to this as Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation and see this often in those who suffer from acne.
