There are two types of skin pigmentations hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation.

Hypopigmentation which is essentially the decrease in skin pigmentation and is characterized by skin patches that become lighter and whiter in color compared to the normal surrounding skin.

On the other hand, hyperpigmentation is usually characterized by the darkening of an area of the skin. The darkening is brought about by overproduction of melanin. In most cases, this condition is said to be harmless. While the condition is usually said to be harmless, it can be embarrassing.

The good side is that there are a number of various treatments that you can use to treat the condition. For example, there are creams, laser treatments, chemical peels, and light treatments that are very effective in treating the condition.

These treatments are usually preferred by many people because they tend to work on the skin much faster thus provide early recovery. While they are effective, most of the treatments tend to be harsh on the skin which can be very uncomfortable for you.
