Pigmentation Treatment

What is Pigmentation?

Melanocytes are the skin cells which are responsible for producing color cells or melanin. Our skin gets its color from melanin.

Pigmentation is related to the skin condition in which the melanocytes are damaged or unhealthy and therefore they produce an excess amount of color cells/melanin, leading to pigmentation or dark spots.

Skin pigmentation is a harmless condition when spots on the skin became darker than the original color. However, the result is an uneven skin color which is aesthetically unpleasant.
