What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that occurs when certain areas become darker in color. Dark patches can develop for a number of reasons in small, targeted regions of the skin. They can also cover large areas of your body, generally in more exposed regions. Though hyperpigmentation is not usually harmful, it can compromise the aesthetic value of the skin and leave a person less than fully confident. Don’t let hyperpigmentation affect your otherwise beautiful skin.
How Hyperpigmentation Attacks Your Skin
Hyperpigmentation can occur for a number of reasons, but it is characterized by an increase in the overall production of melanin, which happens to be the substance that gives your skin its color. While anyone can develop hyperpigmentation, this condition tends to be most common among individuals with moderate to olive skin tones. Factors that might adversely affect your body’s production of melanin include:
- Excessive sun exposure
- Hormonal changes (these will often be caused by pregnancy)
- Decrease in Endocrine (from Addison’s disease, for example)
- Medications like antibiotics, anti-seizure drugs, and hormone treatments
