Pigmentation

Skin pigmentation simply means colouring of the skin. Skin colour is determined by the amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin protects our bodies from harmful ultra violet light. Melanin production is affected when the cells in the skin that produce it become damaged or unhealthy. Skin pigmentation disorders can affect patches of skin or the entire body. Generally they are caused because the body produces either too much or too little melanin.

Pigmentation can be caused by many factors such as lifestyle and hormonal fluctuations brought about by body changes such as pregnancy.

Excessive or deficient pigmentation can have a significant detrimental effect on lifestyle and self-esteem.
