What is Facial Pigmentation?
Facial pigmentation refers to brownish-yellow discoloration on the face. The discolouration results from overproduction of melanin pigment by the melanocyte cells. Chloasma, freckles and blemishes are the three main conditions that give rise to facial pigmentation. Chloasma refers to discoloured patches on the face, varying between yellow, light brown to dark brown in colour. Chloasma is majorly seen in women during pregnancy and menopause when most hormone changes take place. Freckles are clusters of flat light brown spots appearing on the sun exposed area. Freckles are majorly seen in fair complexioned people and those who have a genetic predisposition. Facial pigmentation, whether chloasma or freckles, is set off by the sun. Blemishes are dark marks on the skin left behind by pimples, blackheads or whiteheads.
