Uneven skin pigmentation (also known as hyperpigmentation) is very common. It is caused by an overproduction of melanin, which is responsible to giving colour to areas of the body such as the skin, eyes, and hair.
Melanin is produced by melanocytes which are found in the lower layers of the epidermis in the skin. As the body ages, melanocyte distribution becomes less scattered, and its regulation becomes less controlled by the body.
UV light stimulates melanocyte activity, and where concentration of the melanocyte cells is bigger, hyperpigmentation occurs. Another sort of hyperpigmentation is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These are dark and discoloured spots that appear on the skin following acne.
