Pigmentation, Hale, Manchester


Bright and flawlessly beautiful skin radiates youthfulness and freshness. Dark delimited spots on the skin are merely an annoyance. They are signs of disturbed pigment distribution in the epidermis. Skin pigmentation disorder occurs in all of us – in the face, on the neckline, the back of the hands and the forearms. These include discoloured marks or brown spots, as well as pigmented patches of skin.

Key Things To Know About Pigmentation?

Your skin, hair and eyes get its colour from a pigment called melanin. When the cells responsible for producing melanin are healthy, your skin will appear normal and even however, when they become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. As a result, parts of your skin may turn:

  • Lighter (hypo-pigmentation)
  • Darker (hyper-pigmentation)

Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigment are often associated with variety of reasons including:

  • Skin ageing
  • Sun damage caused by over exposure to the sun or sun-beds
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes
  • Medical conditions and trauma to the skin.

A common cause of hyperpigmentation is an excess production of melanin. Melanin is a pigment that gives skin its colour. And it’s produced by skin cells called melanocytes. Several different conditions or factors can alter the production of melanin in the body.

  • Certain medications
  • Pregnancy changes hormone levels and can affect melanin production in some women. 
  • Excessive sun exposure can also cause an increase in melanin.

What Are Pigmentation?

Your body contains a pigment called melanin, which determines the colour of your skin, hair and eyes. People with darker skin types tend to have more melanin in their skin cells than those with lighter skin – but imbalances and disorders of the skin can lead to inconsistent colouration, patterning and ‘blotches’.

What Are Hyper pigmentation & Hypo pigmentation?

When skin cells are healthy, your skin will appear normal and even. However, when skin cells become damaged or unhealthy, extra melanin is produced to help protect your skin. Alternatively, the cells that produce pigment can be damaged, which prevents melanin production. As a result, parts of your skin may turn lighter (hypopigmentation) or darker (hyperpigmentation), both of which are recognisable skin conditions. This page talks mostly about the symptoms of hyperpigmentation.

 - hormonal changes
 - medical conditions and trauma to the skin (such as burns or as a result of spots and picking).
