Hyper-Pigmentation or Excessive Skin Pigmentation is a result of abnormal production and deposition of melanin by the melanocytes. Melanocytes are pigment-producing cells.
The numbers of melanocytes present in our skin and their rate of pigment production determines our skin colour. Production of melanin is also dependant on Ultra Violet light or Sun exposure, and is a natural protective mechanism of the skin. Hyper-Pigmentation is excess production of melanin while Hypo-Pigmentation is the loss of skin pigmentation because of reduced melanin levels.
Hyper-Pigmentation can be classified into Epidermal (superficial), Dermal (deep) and mixed. The classification of the Hyper-pigmentation determines the type of treatments that are likely to be effective.
