Millions of people develop skin pigmentation conditions at some point in their lives. For many, this results in emotional distress and embarrassment. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to do something about it. Pigmentation is due to the deposition of melanin which is a coloring matter. The melanin is produced by specialized cells called melanocytes. Other pigmented terms include hyperpigmentation (too much pigment), hypopigmentation (too little pigment) and depigmentation (loss of pigment).
