Pigmentation is basically the change in tone or color in the outer layer of the skin that is caused by different factors and leads to cosmetic problems. There are two types of pigmentations; one is hyperpigmentation that is done by overproduction of the melanin and other is known as, hypopigmentation and it is caused by underproduction of melanin and appears in form of white patches on the surface of the skin. Both of these pigmentations are harmless to health but they create a lot of cosmetic and psychological issues. The pigmentation can be felt by anyone at any age and has several factors causing it such as;
- Sun exposure
- Medical conditions
- Hormonal change

These conditions give birth to several forms of pigmentation issues that can only be treated with the help of proper treatment. Some of the most common forms of pigmentation are given below;
Melasma can be called as the deeper pigmentation as it exists inside the deep layers of the dermis. They are visible as large brown patches on different parts of the body. it is quite common for the women who’ve undergone or are undergoing the pregnancy period. The Melasma is apparent on the forehead, cheeks, and chin. Melasma requires consultation of a proper dermatologist/cosmetologist if it doesn’t fade away naturally.
Excessive sun exposure causes the sunspots formation that is the common form of pigmentation. It is caused by sunburns and can only be treated with the help of proper medication or treatment. They can be experienced by anyone at any part of their lives and on any part of the body if the body is exposed to the sun for a longer period.
Freckles are experienced by the white/light skinned people mostly; they are caused when the body produces excessive melanin to heal the infections and is distributed unevenly on the surface of the skin. Freckles are sometimes considered as part of sunspots as they both are caused by overexposure to the sunlight, and both require proper treatment to heal.
