Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. This can create spots or patches on skin which with time appear darker than surrounding areas.

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition and affects people of all skin types but more often lighter skins and older ages.

There are several different treatment options available customized in your condition:


Forms of hyperpigmentation

Some forms of hyperpigmentation, including melasma and sun-spots, are more likely to affect areas of skin that face sun exposure, including the face, hands, arms, and legs.

Other types of hyperpigmentation form after an injury or skin inflammatory conditions, such as cuts, burns, acne etc. These can occur anywhere on the body. Melasma can occur on the neck as a result of perfume use.
