Learn about hyperpigmentation

Learn about hyperpigmentation

What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation of the skin is a common condition that occurs as a darkening of an area of skin compared to one’s normal skin colour. It is usually caused by overproduction and deposition of a skin pigment known as melanin. Melanin is responsible for the colour our skin, hair and eyes and protects skin cells from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light from the sun.

How common is hyperpigmentation?

People with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with excess sun exposure. Up to 65% of Black people are believed to struggle with hyperpigmentation at some point in their lives.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Excessive exposure to sunlight Acne complications Pregnancy eg melasma, linea nigra Complications of bleached skin Burns and its after effects Cancer managements Old age Infections of the skin eg ringworm Atopic dermatitis and other skin allergies Excessive response of the body to hormonal imbalances. Skin injuries Medical conditions eg. Addison’s disease (adrenal insufficiency), Cushing’s disease, Acanthosis nigricans, hemochromatosis, and Porphyria

What can I do to prevent hyperpigmentation?

Use sunscreen when you anticipate long exposure to sunlight Avoid pressing/popping pimples Avoid abusing steroids and other skin bleaching products

What are symptoms of hyperpigmentation?

Depending on the cause, hyperpigmentation may appear at a specific part of the body (localized) or on the whole body (diffused) depending on the underlying cause. The dark spots may be a single patch or appear in patches. Features of the dark spot(s) such as size, how fast they grow, their shape, determine the diagnosis.

What are treatments for hyperpigmentation?

Treating hyperpigmentation depends on the underlying cause. While some respond quickly to prescribed medications/creams, other cases of hyperpigmentation require a longer time to achieve a normal skin colour. In cases where permanent damage to the skin has occurred, it is impossible to achieve a normal skin colour using medical intervention.
