Dark Spots & Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a concentrated and usually localised increase in the skin's natural colour, most often caused by sun exposure. It is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin due to melanin deposits. The visible patches are called "solar lentigines", commonly referred to as age or liver spots. These small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and face and any other areas that receive frequent sun exposure. Some areas, such as the left side of the face and the left arm for frequent drivers, will have more hyperpigmented areas than areas not exposed.
