Language of Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is the clinical name for any uneven darkening of the skin. This is caused by
an excess production of melanin, a pigment that gives skin its color. Some skin discoloration may be temporary but if it persists over time, that may indicate a more chronic skin condition.

 A number of different factors cause hyperpigmentation, including the environment, solar radiation, hormonal changes and pregnancy, which all can lead to an over production of pigment, or melanin, causing skin to look blotchy, spotted, and uneven.

Skin discoloration can have a deeper effect than what’s on the surface. Without a professional diagnosis, many feel at a loss to accurately identify their condition or even how to describe it. Some common terms include dark spots, blotches, or age spots.

Hyperpigmentation can be very frustrating to manage as there’s no “one-size-fits all”
approach and it’s a chronic condition. While even a small blemish can cause frustration for many individuals, severe hyperpigmentation is extremely emotional and has been linked to psychosocial anxiety and low self-esteem.
