Pigmentation simply means colouring. The skin tone of a healthy person will appear normal. However, skin colour may vary due to disease or injury, becoming either darker (hyperpigmentation). In Malaysia, when someone says they have pigmentation problem, most of them will be referring to hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition in which patches of skin darken. It results when your skin cells become damaged or unhealthy, affecting melanin production. The extra melanin creates spots or patches that look brown, deep brown, blue-grey, and even blue-black. Typically harmless, yet hyperpigmentation can be a nuisance and affect your confidence.
