Pigmentation is a condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. According to the amount and depth of melanin accumulation the severity of pigmentation is determined. The three stages of pigmentation are:
- Part Epidermal and Part Dermal
- Only Dermal
Melanocytes or pigment cells that produce melanin get activated by sun, hormonal changes, or even pregnancy in the case of women can trigger the over-production of melanin. This excess melanin accumulates at a specific spot and creates the dark complexion.
