PIGMENTATION

PIGMENTATION

Pigmentation is the coloring of our skin where irregular dark patches mar the skin due to an excess of melanin. Essentially, melanin is produced by pigment-making melanocytes and they function as skin protectors to shield the skin from sun and UV damage. In healthy, young skin, melanin is spread out evenly on the skin’s surface, giving it a uniform color. However, damaged skin or hormonal imbalance can spark an over-production in melanin and disperse it unevenly. This is what contributes to the dark, patchy colour on the skin. Pigmentation generally shows up in the form of melasma, freckles, age spots, post acne pigmentation, post-inflammatory pigmentation, and solar lentigines.
