Hyperpigmentation occurs when there is an over production of pigment (melanin) within the skin. It typically presents itself as light to dark brown spots or blotches on the skin and can be located on any part of the body but is more common on the face, chest, back, arms and backs of hands.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

  • Sun exposure (sun spots, liver/aging spots)
