There are 2 types of  pigmentation, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation.

Pigmentation is one of the most common  skin concerns that Asians seek treatment for. Hyperpigmentation is when the affected skin becomes darker than the surrounding areas. Hypopigmentation is the opposite. We will discuss more about hyperpigmentation in this article.

Hyperpigmentation happens when the skin  cells, melanocytes are over-active and produce more melanin. Melanin  gives your skin colour. With more melanin, you will find your skin  colour darkens.

Some common types of hyperpigmentation includes;

1) Freckles

2) Age spots

3) Melasma

4) Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

1) Topical Creams
