What causes skin pigmentation?


Skin pigmentation causes can vary, but the condition is mainly brought about by an abnormal production of melanin. If a patient has too much or too little melanin, this can result in age spots, skin discolouration, light or dark pigmentation on the face and other skin appearance problems. Sun damage is one of the most significant causes of skin pigmentation, so it’s important to protect the skin with a strong sunscreen, in order to prevent further hyperpigmentation or skin pigmentation.
