Skin discolourations can come in many forms. Ranging from the birthmarks we are naturally born with to the skin conditions we can develop later in life, skin pigmentation depends on a number of factors. Take a look below to know more about the basics of skin pigmentation and some of the common causes of discolouration to help you understand what they are and how they affect your skin-- and how experts at Hairline Skin Clinic can help you deal with them.
Pigmentation means colouring. Our skin contains melanocyte cells that produce melanin. Melanin gives our skin its colour. As we get older, our skin loses its glow and begins to get blemished; ageing spots and other blemishes are some of the problems we struggle with. Overexposure to the UV rays from the sun is the major cause of uneven skin tone. The UV rays cause sunburns and age spots. Intense and extreme ultraviolet rays of the sun triggers overproduction of melanin in the skin, which occurs over the years to form what we call age spots or brown spots. Whenever melanin is formed in large amounts, it leads to hyperpigmented skin. This results in freckles and dark spots on the skin.
