Do you notice hyperpigmented areas on your skin that you can’t get rid of? Stop worrying about those dark spots and use remedies and treatment options served by Pigmentation Treatment.
Our skin has pigment-producing cells called melanocytes that produce a pigment called melanin. However, if melanocytes are damaged or unhealthy, they can cause an over or underproduction of melanin. As a result, it will cause hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation of the skin.
Causes of Skin Pigmentation
Pigmentation can be due to a variety of causes. Some of these causes are as follow:
- Sun exposure
- Allergic reaction
- Hormonal changes
- Liver disorders
- Addison disease
Home Remedies for Skin Pigmentation
