Pigmentation is normally one of two main types: Hyperpigmentation - darker areas of the skin, and hypopigmentation - lighter areas of the skin.
Excess production of melanin, responsible for the skin's colour, causes hyperpigmentation. High levels of sun exposure can cause uneven production of melanin - pigmentation. This is why pigmentation is usually noted on areas that are exposed to the sun such as, the face, arms and shoulders. Hyperpigmentation can also be caused by hormonal changes, especially during pregnancy.
Hypopigmentation, the lightening of areas of the skin, is often caused by burns, scalds or scars.
