Hyperpigmentation is a harmless condition but it can cause unevenness that is hard to camouflage with make-up. Better known as dark spots, hyperpigmentation may be apparent as melasma — brown patches on adult skin — or as sun spots due to too much exposure to the sun resulting in an excess production of melanin.
These types of hyperpigmentation have different causes and a range of treatments and products, including creams and cosmetic procedures.
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition. It affects people of all skin types. Some forms of hyperpigmentation, including sun spots and melasma, are more likely to affect areas of the skin that face sun exposure, including the face, arms, and legs.
Other types of hyperpigmentation form after an injury or skin inflammation, such as cuts, burns, acne, or lupus. These can occur anywhere on the body.
