Pigmentation is one of the most common problems, especially on Indian skin. However, the word pigmentation is an extensive term and includes hundreds of skin conditions. Therefore, it’s essential to classify and define the pigmentation and then suggest the appropriate treatment options.
There are a range of treatments for this, depending on the cause. A suitable maintenance protocol is essential on top of combined treatments. Skin pigmentation disorders can cause changes to the colour of your skin. Hyperpigmentation is the condition of skin darkening when melanin is made by cells within your skin, resulting in altered skin colour. It could be localised or generalised.
Hyperpigmentation is caused by damage from the sun, inflammation, or other skin injuries. People who have a darker skin tone are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially those who have prolonged exposure to the sun. Thus, making sun protection an essential cornerstone in the treatment protocol.
