What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation refers to a variety of conditions that affect the skin and its ability to produce excess pigmentation. These conditions include sun damage, scarring form acne, birthmarks and darkening of the skin due to severe eczema.
Depending on how deeply the pigmentation has penetrated the skin will determine how hard the condition is to treat. In severe cases, it can take a long time before the hyperpigmentation disappears completely.
What Is Melasma?
Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation but is a lot harder to treat. This is because it is not only thought to be caused by sun damage to the skin but is also hormone related. Therefore, to treat this type of skin condition you need a dual approach which is difficult to accomplish and takes time.
Melasma mainly affects women, especially those who are pregnant and occurs mostly around the facial areas though it can develop on other parts of the body. It also becomes worse in environments with a lot of heat and light such as the kitchen, bathroom and backyard.
How Can I Treat Them?
