Are dark patches on your skin worrying you?
Is your confidence getting affected by these dark spots?
Hyperpigmentation could be one of the reasons for these dark patches to appear. Pigmentation varies widely over the world, particularly among Asian and Indian people, as they are more vulnerable to pigmentation problems than other human groups.
It is a skin disorder that is usually harmless but medical attention may be required if it’s affecting your self-esteem.
What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a frequent, usually harmless disorder in which patches of skin darken in color in comparison to the surrounding skin. When an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that gives skin its color, develops deposits in the skin, it darkens.
When pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) are harmed, more melanin is produced, which clumps together. Dark patches or hyperpigmentation are caused by melanin clusters on the face, neck, and around the lips, or on other regions of the skin. It can affect people of all ages and skin types.
