Have you heard about hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation represents a skin disorder. The symptoms include dark areas on the skin that are principally caused by large amount of melanin e.g. the skin’s dark pigment. Problems with the melanin can be caused from sun exposure, aging, some diseases, trauma or pregnancy. Unfortunately, all of them lead to appearing brown spots on the skin.
Two factors are known to cause hyperpigmentation: internal and external. Internal factors might be inbred. People who have darker skin have more risk of evolving this disarray. External factors are surrounding us in the environment: sun exposure or chemicals (estrogen, betaxolol, progesterone, minocycline, etc.).
Skin problems like specks, stains and age- spots from the sun are a result of the dangerous ultraviolet rays from the sun, which damage the melanin and cause a transient or continuous discoloration. They can appear on any part of the body that has been exposed to the sun, but you can often see them on the face or on the hands.
Discoloration can also be caused trauma scars or some kind of surgery. Dark spots are known to have remained even after the problem is gone.
Melasma is skin hyperpigmentation which appears during pregnancy, but sometimes it can appear in men, as well. It’s commonly known as a mask of pregnancy, because the brown spots are manifested on the face and very often at the cheeks and the nose. These spots disappear after the period of pregnancy.
