Common Types of Pigmentation
Whether you refer to it as “pigmentation” or “discoloration,” there are many conditions that this title covers. Here are a few of the most common types of pigmentation.
Melasma is a pigmentation condition that is deeper within the skin’s dermis. Often triggered by pregnancy, melasma is worsened with UV exposure. Melasma is a particularly frustrating form of pigmentation, as it most commonly appears on the face.
Also known as age spots, spots, liver spots, brown spots, and dark spots, solar lentigines are discolored areas on the skin with a very defined edge. These spots are most often caused by UV sun exposure.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin has experienced trauma. It can happen due to burns, friction, acne, or aggressive treatments.
