What is pigmentation?

Pigmentation refers to the colour of your skin depending on the amount of melanin present.

There are two types of melanin present in each person of varying degrees. The amount of either is what determines a person’s natural skin colour.

  1. Eumelanin (known as real melanin) comes in black or dark brown. These are often found in people with matte skin and are known to have better protection against UV rays.
  2. Pheomelanin (known as red or redhead melanin) is most commonly present in people with fair skin or red hair. This melanin does not protect against UV rays.

Skin pigmentation disorders can occur when excessive amounts of melanin are produced, commonly known as hyperpigmentation. This can result in dark spots, patches or discolouration of your skin.

Hyperpigmentation is not a harmful condition and typically only causes you to have an uneven skin tone, but it is always best to consult your doctor should you have any concerns or if it seems to be getting worse.

If you have started to notice any forms of discolouration or uneven skin tone, you may discuss these concerns with your healthcare provider for a better understanding of what could be causing this and if there are any underlying medical conditions.

FAQS ABOUT pigmentation

Frequently Asked Questions
01. Does pigmentation go away?
Pigmentation can go away once the cause of it is stopped, however, it can take time to fade. Spots that are a few shades darker than your natural skin colour can take up to 6 to 12 months to fade, and lighter shades can take a shorter time. If it lies deep within your skin, it can take years for pigmentation to fade naturally.
02. When should I worry about pigmentation?
Pigmentation and skin discolouration are often harmless and should not be a cause for concern. You should speak with your doctor if you do notice sudden changes in your skin colour or if the discolouration is spreading and seem to be getting worse.
03. How long can pigmentation last?
Depending on the severity of the pigmentation (how deep it is within the skin or how dark of a shade it is), it can take anywhere between 6 to 12 months for it to fully fade. Even with treatment, it may take a long time before your skin will return to normal. Always discuss any concerns you have with your doctor before undergoing any treatment to prevent it from getting worse.
04. Why is my pigmentation getting worse?
Pigmentation can be triggered by sun exposure, hormonal changes or trauma to the skin. Picking at your skin can cause spots to get darker over time. Certain products such as face creams can also cause irritation to the skin, leading to worsening pigmentation or more spots appearing.
