Skin colour is determined by how much pigment it produces, specifically a protein called melanin. Pigmentation in the form of unsightly dark spots or patches occurs when the skin becomes damaged and reacts by producing extra melanin in these areas.
One of the most common causes of pigmentation is damage from sun exposure. The end result is uneven, patchy skin tone. Other causes of pigmentation include scarring from acne or hyperpigmentation after inflammation or injury of the skin. The effects of pigmentation can be reduced with appropriate treatments.
