Pigmentation itself refers to the colouring of the skin. Skin pigmentation disorders cause changes to the colour of a persons skin. Melanin is made by cells in the skin and is the pigment responsible for skin’s colour.
Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes your skin to darken. Most people who suffer from skin pigmentation disorders suffer from Hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris. People with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with excess sun exposure. Many forms of hyperpigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin.
Hypopigmentation is much more rare and significantly harder to treat.
Hypopigmentation refers to patches of skin that are lighter than your overall skin tone.
Hypopigmentation is the loss of skin colour generally due to a disease or trauma. It can affect people from birth or develop later in life. Essentially, if your skin cells do not produce enough melanin, the skin can lighten. These effects can occur in spots or may cover your entire body.
Pigmentation affects so many people. Although, some types of pigmented lesions exist at birth, often times pigment represents one of the first signs of ageing. That is why so many people are interested in removing pigment. In fact, this market is about double the size of the market for the removal of tattoos.
