Skin Pigmentations, also known as Hypopigmentations is caused by a very low amount of melanin being produced by the cells and it makes the skin lighter than normal. Apart from primary pigmentation disorders, hypopigmentation can also result from injuries to the skinsuch as burns, ulcers, chemical exposure, or skin infection.

What is Skin Pigmentation?

Skin Pigmentations (hypopigmentations) refers to patches of skin that are lighter than your overall skin tone. Your skin’s pigmentation, or color, is based on the production of a substance called melanin. If your skin cells don’t produce enough melanin, the skin can lighten. These effects can occur in spots or may cover your entire body.
