Hyperpigmentation sometimes known as Dark spots, age spots, sun spots and melasma is a common and a harmless condition which can occur anywhere on the body. To most people who suffer from it, it is a very unwanted condition that can effect self-esteem.
Hyperpigmentation It is caused through stimulation of your pigment cells called Melanocytes which produce the pigment called Melanin resulting in visible darker patches on the skin. The effects can become more obvious with age. If pigmentation is left untreated and unprotected, it can worsen which is why it is important to treat and prevent.
