Dark Skin Pigmentation

Dark Skin Pigmentation Treatment in Mumbai India

Dark skin pigmentation, also known as hyperpigmentation, is caused due to melanin. Melanin is a broader term for a group of pigments that are produced by the oxidation of the amino acid tyrosine. But there is a bigger problem when hyperpigmentation happens in people of dark skin. Dark skin pigmentation is quite bad and is harder to give treatment to, unlike pigmentation in light-skinned people. Dark skin pigmentation is common among people in Mumbai as well as the rest of India since we are people with dark skin. Therefore when it comes to dark skin pigmentation India sees many people lining up to the centres to get treatment.

Now dark spots on dark skin happen due to several reasons. This can be an outcome of an injury or the leftover problems of acne. Whenever there is a break in dark skin due to a cut or even a pimple, more melanin is supplied by the body. Now these areas form spots that are visible. The worst thing is in a place like Mumbai or even India, where the weather is warm, the sunlight acts on these spots and the spots get even darker. More dark skin pigmentation is seen in such spots after exposure to the sun. Therefore people in Mumbai or warm regions in India obviously seek treatment for dark skin pigmentation.
