Hyperpigmentation is a skin color disorder characterized by dark zones in the skin, and is caused by the increased amount of melanin, the dark pigment of the skin.
Exposure to sunlight, pregnancy, certain diseases, age or trauma can lead to disorders of melanin and create unsightly brown spots characteristic of this benign disorder.
Freckles, age spots and sun spots are caused by the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun that damage melanin and result in temporary or permanent discoloration. Often these stains can be noticed on the face and arms, but can occur anywhere on the skin that has been exposed to the sun.
