Pigmentation is the presence of dark or light patches on the skin. Dark patches on the skin refer to hyperpigmentation and light patches on the skin refer to hypopigmentation. Though it is not life-threatening, it can bother those who desire to have a clear and even skin tone.
Our skin contains cells called melanocytes. These cells produce a pigment called melanin. The color of our skin is determined by the number of melanocytes present in our skin. Melanin not only gives color to the skin but also protects our skin from sun radiation. The more our skin is exposed to sun rays, the melanocytes cells produce more melanin. The excess melanin which is deposited under the skin leads to skin tan and Pigmentation. Any damage caused to these melanocytes cells affects the melanin production in our body and further causes skin pigmentation. It not only occurs in patches on different parts of the body but can also affect the entire body.
