Hyperpigmentation or increased pigmentation treatment Melbourne is a condition that occurs when excess melanocytes are deposited on the skin. Melanocytes are cells containing melanin which often gives the skin its color. It can affect all skin types and is commonly seen on the face, hands, neck, chest and other parts of the body.
This condition is sometimes known as dark spots. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production in the skin, hence, leading to dark spots or hyperpigmentation. Once these dark patches have developed, sun exposure can also intensify the issue by making age spots, sun damage, melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation spots even darker.
