What Is Pigmentation?
We already know the warmer months are popular for how they bring along an increase in pigmentation. But, beyond this, facial discoloration is another one of those pesky skin problems that can happen at any time in the year.
Over 80% of women over the age of 25 suffer from pigmentation that is also known as hyperpigmentation. Pigmented lesions are hypermelanocytic areas typically induced by Hormonal fluctuations, sun exposure, inflammation, aging, and certain medications or congenital factors that can result in an overproduction of melanin (pigment) from melanocytes (pigment-producing cells). Pigmented lesions vary widely in size, shape, and depth. They can be either raised or flat and are usually a cosmetic rather than a medical concern.
