What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation means colouring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the colour of your skin. Your skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body. When your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker.
Different Types Of Pigmentation:
Lentigo/Lentigenes – Lentigo simply means one freckle and lentigenes are multiple freckles.
Solar Lentigenes – widely known as ‘sun spots,’ ‘age spots’ and ‘liver spots,’ caused by sun exposure.
Melasma – Often known as the ‘pregnancy mask,’ melasma is caused by hormonal changes due to pregnancy and is characterized by splotchy, pigmented areas usually on the face.
Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation - Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation occurs after a pimple, burn, cut, abrasion or a minor injury, it leaves a mark on the surface of the skin (epidermis) that is darker than the rest of the skin.
