Skin Condition hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation:

 

Hyperpigmentation is the deposition of melanin due to the stimulation of melanogenesis which is the process by which pigment is produced and duplicated in the skin. It is the end result of the immune system triggering an inflammatory response, which then triggers melanocyte activity to protect the skin’s DNA from damage and mutation. The process is instigated by any hormonal trigger or cutaneous inflammation such as heat, trauma or sun.

 

It is important to note that melanocytes are created in the deepest layer of the Epidermis and can take some time to rise to the outer surface of the skin, Stratum Cornuem where they appear as light pigment and get darker as they reach the outer layers.
