What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is when patches of our skin become darker than its surrounding areas. It is often described as darkening of the skin that occurs in small patches or large areas of the body.

Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. This can make spots or patches of skin appear darker than surrounding areas.

Hyperpigmentation affects people of all skin types, some forms of hyperpigmentation, including melasma and sunspots, are more likely to affect areas of skin that face sun exposure, including the face, arms, and legs. What are hyperpigmentation issues that you face?

Types of Hyperpigmentation

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is caused by several factors that depend on the hyperpigmentation you are experiencing. The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are:

Sun Exposure

Our body will naturally produce more melanin to protect the skin from prolonged exposure to the sun. This can cause dark spots or patches on the skin called age spots or sun spots.

Skin Inflammation

Areas of skin can darken after experiencing inflammation of the skin. This can include acne, eczema, lupus, or an injury to the skin.


Darker patches of skin can form when people experience hormonal changes. This type of hyperpigmentation is common during pregnancy.

Reactions to Medication

Certain medications can cause hyperpigmentation. Chemicals in topical treatments can also sometimes cause hyperpigmentation. In these cases, patches of skin may turn gray.
